Challenges & Solutions for Media Workflows in the Cloud

Video is deeply embedded in today’s connected experience. It’s packaged for access on the go, it’s ever-present in social media feeds and it’s at the ready throughout the home, on connected TVs, set-top boxes, and a growing number of devices.

In today’s video landscape, all video providers, from the largest global conglomerate to the fledging enterprise, face the same challenges. Simply put, traditional approaches to video processing and delivery cannot keep pace with the changing nature of video consumption and the rising expectations that follow from it.

In an effort to overcome the shortcomings of traditional video infrastructure and to lessen undifferentiated heavy lifting, technology vendors have begun to offer cloud-based services that promise to reduce the role of hardware-based solutions in the video workflow.

With AWS, video providers can stop worrying about infrastructure, speed and capacity. Whether for OTT, live-to-VOD, multiscreen or 24x7 streaming, video providers can run end-to-end video workflows entirely on the AWS cloud with improved security, simplicity, latency, and integration with other services – with AWS your content never has to leave the platform.
