Make TV, part of Imagine’s Aviator cloud platform, obtains AWS’ Foundational Technical Review (FTR)
Imagine Communications has announced a recent achievement. The company has completed the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Foundational Technical Review (FTR) for its Aviator Make TV cloud playout solution.
The FTR is an added layer of clear understanding around technical and security evaluation. In fact, it serves to enable products to be sold and supported in the AWS Marketplace.
Make TV is part of Imagine Aviator: a cloud-native platform that enables customers to plan, make and monetize ad-supported linear and connected TV (CTV) content from a unified 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.
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.
“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.”
