Amagi has appointed Deepakjit Singh as Chief Executive Officer. He will closely work with the team to continue and expedite its impressive growth trajectory, particularly in the US where Amagi expects rapid growth this year following its official launch in the region in late 2017.

With nearly 30 years of experience in broadcast technology, including executive positions at Encompass, Ascent Media, Bharti Airtel and BT, Singh has been taken aboard Amagi to increase the footprint of the company across the globe.

“Deepakjit is one of the most well-regarded leaders in broadcast technology today,” said KA Srinivasan, Co-Founder, Amagi. “And, 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. Amagi’s products, based on ‘in-the-cloud’ technology and infrastructure, make 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 fibre-based delivery. Content creators can use Amagi’s Cloudport to easily spin up new channels and deliver them to any location, using the cloud, which delivers tremendous benefits in terms of worldwide manageability and cost savings.

“Amagi’s technology is second to none,” 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. With its technology, Amagi is perfectly positioned to fill this gap, delivering enviable business outcomes to broadcasters addressing their playout operations, management and monetisation needs. I’m thrilled to spearhead Amagi’s growth and position into being the technology and service provider of choice for the new-age – anywhere, anytime – content consumer.”

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, Singh served as VP of Sales and Marketing at Ascent Media following a stint as SVP at Bharti Airtel.

“The US is an incredibly attractive and competitive marketplace, and it augurs well that we have hit the ground running in the region, thus far. We expect over a third of our revenue to come from the US market in 2018, so continuing our growth here will be huge moving forward. And with Singh now in the fold, we believe we are in an even better place to continue our success worldwide in 2018,” added Srinivasan.
