Playout Solutions

Your viewers deserve the best viewing experience anywhere, anytime.

Media companies are under constant pressure to spin up new channels for multiple platforms — and fast-track time to revenue.

Efficiently reaching a fragmented, anywhere/anytime audience requires rethinking the way you do playout – you need the best tools and enough flexibility to adapt quickly to every change.

Imagine offers the right premium channel origination technology to achieve these goals, whether on-prem, or in a hybrid or cloud environment. Deliver your high-value content with eye-catching graphics and impeccable video and audio for a memorable and engaging viewer experience every time.

Cloud Playout

To thrive in a competitive media landscape with evolving viewer habits, broadcasters and digital-first video distributors are driven to deliver compelling content reliably, at the highest quality, to any device.

Imagine offers a cloud-native solution ideally suited for any demanding content origination environment, allowing you to maximize the revenue potential of every TV service. From quickly spinning up a limited-time channel to standing up a DR channel or getting a playoff game live on-air for broadcast in-venue and beyond, we can help you leverage the flexibility of cloud infrastructure to meet your business needs.
