Case study: CineSend grows video streaming business by 1000% with secure content delivery solution built on AWS

CineSend provides secure, cloud-native video storage, encoding, and delivery solutions to customers ranging from major airlines and Hollywood studios to global financial institutions, top colleges, and other enterprises. The company experienced a significant spike in demand for its video streaming services at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but leveraged AWS to quickly and efficiently scale to support a 1,000 percent increase in its video streaming client base in 2020.

Read the full case study to learn how CineSend uses file-based video transcoding service AWS Elemental MediaConvert to provide users around the world with secure file storage and delivery, antipiracy protection, and on-demand streaming, and taps into the service’s Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate (QVBR) feature to minimize wasted bits and scale video bitrate to maintain consistent video quality. CineSend also uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to encrypt data at rest and provide its customers with more resilient and secure storage, as well as Amazon CloudFront, a high-performance content delivery network service.

AWS offers the most purpose-built services for direct-to-consumer (D2C) and streaming to help companies reliably deliver, monetize, and support live and on-demand media over the internet, and brings unparalleled experiences to screens everywhere. Explore to learn more.
