An independent owner, operator, and manager of complimentary ad-based streaming television (FAST) channels, acTVe has released Amagi's collection of solutions to produce and distribute its FAST channels 24/7 across a wide variety of CTV platforms.
All five channels are made available in November, signifying an inspirational achievement in acTVe's expansion and strengthening Amagi's commitment to utilise high-end technology for the sports, media, and entertainment industries.
“These channels represent the pinnacle offerings in their genre, and we chose Amagi as our playout partner because they provide the superior technology required to deliver broadcast-level quality,” mentioned Geoff Clark, CEO of acTVe. "Amagi's solutions give us the flexibility to compete with major broadcasters with live sports capabilities on our channels, further enriching the viewer experience."
Earlier this month, acTVe announced collaboration with The Arena Group (AREN) to release five new premium channels. Each one is linked to one of the media company's mainstream action sports brands: Powder Magazine, Surfer Magazine, Transworld Skateboarding, Bike Mag, and Snowboarder. To provide a smooth and remarkable viewing experience for these channels, acTVe has launched the Amagi cloud port broadcast-grade channel playout platform, the Amagi thunderstorm dynamic server-side ad insertion (SSAI) solution, and the Amagi analytics comprehensive viewership and ad analytics platform. The channels will release internationally and will be accessible on complimentary streaming platforms such as SportsTribal, FreeMovies+, and Freecast, alongside CTV apps on brands like Roku, Vizio, Samsung, and more — with more platforms set to be included throughout 2024.
