Media & entertainment customers face industry-wide transformation, with companies reinventing how they create content, optimize media supply chains, and compete for audience attention across streaming, broadcast, and direct-to-consumer platforms. Industry leaders such as Netflix, FORMULA 1, Discovery, and Disney use the AWS Cloud to pioneer new ways to entertain—launching new streaming services, expanding their content catalogs, and setting new standards with audiences for viewing experiences.

To help customers through this phase, today we’re excited to introduce “AWS for Media & Entertainment,” an initiative featuring new and existing services and solutions from AWS and AWS Partners, built specifically for content creators, rights holders, producers, broadcasters, and distributors. AWS for Media & Entertainment (M&E) aligns the most purpose-built capabilities of any cloud—including nine AWS Services, 11 AWS Solutions, dedicated AWS appliances, and more than 400 AWS Partners—against five solution areas to help customers transform M&E: Content Production; Media Supply Chain & Archive; Broadcast; Direct-to-Consumer & Streaming; and Data Science & Analytics. It also adds the newly announced Amazon Nimble Studio, a service that enables customers to set up creative studios in hours instead of weeks, to an AWS portfolio of industry-specific media and entertainment services, including AWS Elemental MediaPackage, AWS Elemental MediaConnect, AWS Elemental MediaLive, AWS Elemental MediaConvert, AWS Elemental MediaStore, AWS Elemental MediaTailor, and Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS).

AWS for Media & Entertainment makes it easier for industry customers to select the right tools and partners for their highest-priority workloads, accelerate production launches, and see faster time to value. For customers looking to accelerate solution deployments with prescriptive, solution-specific support, AWS for Media & Entertainment also establishes dedicated AWS industry specialists and AWS Professional Services teams across each solution area, and identifies leading industry partners in each area—including AWS Partners such as Adobe, Autodesk, Deluxe, Dolby, Epic Games, Evertz, Grass Valley, Imagine Communications, Mission, Slalom, Sony Media Cloud Services, TrackIt, Teradici, and Wizeline.
