Provides high degree of assurance around security and resilience of cloud solutions

DENVER, November 3, 2022 – Imagine Communications, a long-time pioneer in software-based architectures and cloud solutions, has successfully completed the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Foundational Technical Review (FTR) for its Aviator™ Make TV cloud playout solution. Make TV is part of Imagine Aviator ― a truly cloud-native platform that enables broadcasters, multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) and digital-first providers to easily plan, make and monetize premium-quality, ad-supported linear and connected TV (CTV) content from a single, unified platform.

Imagine has a detailed, highly qualified quality assurance program in-house to ensure its software meets the real needs of media companies, providing very high availability and protection from cyberthreats. The FTR is an added layer of clear understanding around technical and security evaluation, which in turn allows the products to be sold and supported in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS.

“Imagine Aviator is a completely new concept, drawing on decades of Imagine experience,” said Rob Malcolm, chief product officer at Imagine Communications. “It was conceived from the ground up to be a cloud platform, and that is where its unique strengths lie. We have been a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) since the very beginning of the cloud for media, and we develop according to the principles of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. Successfully completing the FTR is another key step towards widespread understanding and adoption of our ground-breaking, end-to-end Aviator platform.”

The FTR allows AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their products or solutions. Led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect, the FTR process provides specific guidelines and AWS best practices to reduce risks around security, documentation, reliability and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The result is that Imagine can review projects against the requirements of the FTR, adhering to best practices and ensuring the best possible outcomes for the end user.

Aviator Make TV includes all the capabilities required to deliver premium-quality linear channels, with unified origination for broadcast and digital streams. The highly modular architecture allows functionality to be precisely tailored to the business requirements of the channel. This includes support for a full range of channel types ― from the most sophisticated live channels with real-time branding used in news or sports to more streamlined thematic channels or regional variants with HTML5-based graphic overlays to enable simpler operations.
