Amagi has announced the appointment of Deepakjit Singh as its CEO. With nearly 30 years of experience in broadcast technology – including executive positions at Encompass, Ascent Media, Bharti Airtel and BT – Deepakjit has been brought in to increase the footprint of Amagi across the globe. He will be closely working with the team to continue and expedite its impressive growth trajectory, particularly in the US where the company expects rapid growth, following its official launch in the region in late 2017.
Founded in 2008, Amagi offers cloud-managed broadcast services and targeted advertising for TV and OTT, enabling TV networks to launch, operate, and monetise channels anywhere in the world.
Prior to joining Amagi, Singh served as Chief Innovation Officer at Encompass, and managing director for APAC region where he grew the company’s business exponentially. Earlier, he served as VP of sales and marketing at Ascent Media following a stint as SVP at Bharti Airtel.
“Deepakjit is one of the most well-regarded leaders in broadcast technology today,” said K A Srinivasan, co-founder of Amagi. “He will be a huge part of helping Amagi build upon its global success, especially within the US and other rapidly evolving markets. We are really excited to have him on board.”
Amagi is an end-to-end cloud playout and managed services provider, making it possible for content providers to reach their consumers anywhere across the world and on any device of consumer’s choice without the upfront expense of satellite or fiber-based delivery.
Deepakjit Singh said, “Globally, there is a huge void in the media industry to provide distribution capabilities to content owners for both linear TV and non-linear video consumption market. Amagi is perfectly positioned to fill this gap, delivering enviable business outcomes to broadcasters addressing their playout operations, management and monetisation needs.”
