AWS on the IBC Show Floor

Technology Innovation
Upgrade your live video workflows with content-aware encoding to deliver OTT video at a fraction of the bandwidth while enhancing excellent video quality. For high-profile live events, improve viewing experiences with an end-to-end workflow that achieves less than three seconds of latency from camera to display. In addition, see how QVBR, CMAF, AVI, and IMF can improve the viewer experience.

Personalization and Monetization
Deploy end-to-end solutions for live over-the-top (OTT) streams that deliver personalized experiences to every viewer. Build and maintain linear video services affordably, efficiently, and with outstanding quality using serverless playout.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
Automate transcription and translation to generate captions, subtitles, and audio in multiple languages for live and on-demand streams. Engage your audiences with personalized search tools and viewing experiences enabled by real-time content recommendation.

Content Distribution
Transform live channels into monetized, on-demand assets with live content syndication within the AWS Cloud. Explore new solutions to enhance end-to-end security for live video workflows and protect from distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Content Creation
Use Studio in the Cloud to free content creation from geographic and capacity constraints with virtual workstations, cloud rendering, and storage, so your talent can create faster, collaborate more effectively, and deliver better results.

Media Supply Chain
Migrate large-scale video archives to the cloud and build content lakes with enhanced metadata for better content search and management. Simplify your supply chain and easily exchange content assets via the cloud.
