Aviator – Make TV.

What is Aviator Make TV?

Aviator Make TV is one of the three key pillars of the Imagine Aviator platform.

With its comprehensive cloud playout solution, you can deliver great AV quality and seamless program-ad-promo transitions and live events ― all while boosting your bottom line, monetizing content on every screen.

Utilizing cloud orchestration to reliably manage playout services and leverage the flexibility of cloud infrastructure, you can easily start/stop channels, launch pop-up channels, add channel redundancy, run a disaster recovery (DR) channel, monitor system and channel health, and much more.

The platform’s unified UI gives engineers and operators anywhere-anytime access and complete control of even the most sophisticated workflows for channel origination in the cloud, combining clips, live events, real-time graphics, subtitles and SCTE insertion.
