Amazon Rekognition is a deep learning-based service that makes it easy to add image and video analysis to your applications. Rekognition Image API allows you to detect objects, scenes, faces and inappropriate content; extract text; recognize celebrities; and search and compare faces, in images. Rekognition Video API for the AWS US-East (Ohio) region allows you to track people; detect objects, scenes, activities and inappropriate content; recognize celebrities; and search faces, in videos stored in Amazon S3. 

With Amazon Rekognition, you only pay for the images you analyze, the amount of video time analyzed and the face metadata you store. There are no minimum fees and there are no upfront commitments. The pricing in the newly added US East (Ohio) region is the same as existing geographical regions supported. 

Amazon Rekognition is also currently available in US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland) regions. To get started with Rekognition, simply log in to the Rekognition console to try the service. Learn more about features and ideal use cases by reading our Documentation.
