Leading Media Supply Chain & Archive customers on AWS
A playout system is used to stream video for broadcasting and over-the-top (OTT) video. Learn how Nippon Television Network Corporation (NTV) uses theirs to performs tasks such as switching between a live feed and a pre-recorded asset, controlling and editing the progress of a TV program, and switching video sources on AWS.
A+E Networks discuss the drivers that prompted them to shift from on-premises technology to deploying more than 90% of their infrastructure on the cloud, as well as lessons about culture, organizational structure, and technology.
Using solutions from AWS and AWS Partners, Discovery migrated more than 400 global channels to AWS, decommissioned its data centers and physical playout hubs, and lowered its total cost of ownership (TCO). The broadcaster’s new cloud-based, flexible business model enabled it to stand up short-run channels for major events.
MGM is migrating its content library and critical SAP workloads to AWS to power its media supply chain as well as support its content rights and distribution processes. Running on AWS, MGM will distribute content across multiple platforms quickly and at scale.
Solutions and services
Highly scalable, elastic, and secure cloud services that help customers more easily ingest, store, process, deliver, and manage content in the cloud
Moving your digital asset management to the cloud enables you to take advantage of the latest innovations in asset management and supply chain applications. However, it can be a challenging and slow process to migrate your existing video archives to the cloud.
To help streamline and automate the migration process, AWS offers the Media2Cloud solution. This solution sets up a serverless end-to-end ingest workflow to move your video assets and associated metadata to the cloud. During the migration, the solution analyzes and extracts valuable metadata from your video and images using Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, and Amazon Comprehend. Media2Cloud also includes a simple web interface that enables you to immediately start ingesting and analyzing your content to enrich its value.
AWS Content Analysis
Enables you to perform automated video content analysis using a serverless application model to generate meaningful insights through machine learning (ML) generated metadata
This solution provides access to a variety of AWS-native AI services that they can apply to their media libraries and then use insights and metadata to automate manual processes. The solution includes a web-based user interface that customers can use to upload and search their video libraries.
The AWS Content Analysis solution combines Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, and Amazon Comprehend to offer a suite of comprehensive capabilities to analyze a customer’s video content. The solution is a tailored application based on the open source project Media Insights Engine (MIE). The Media Insights Engine provides a framework to simplify the development of applications that transform or analyze videos on AWS.
Media Exchange on AWS
Create a mechanism in the AWS Cloud for transferring media assets with your business partners.
This solution provides Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers and business partners a common method for directly transferring media assets.
Media Exchange on AWS creates a shared object storage area using an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket between publishers and subscribers in a separate, secured AWS account. Publishers copy the assets into this shared S3 bucket and create permissions to allow subscribers to pull the content from the shared resource.
Simple File Manager for Amazon EFS
Directly interact with data in your Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) file systems through a web user interface.Use the web UI to browse, upload, and download files in existing EFS file systems, without specialized Linux knowledge. Web access provides access to your Amazon EFS files from any device or location and the serverless architecture saves you from deploying dedicated resources, such as an Amazon EC2 instance, to manage your data.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) implementations can use this solution to host datasets in Amazon EFS file systems and run inference algorithms via AWS Lambda within the same Amazon VPC.
AWS Elemental MediaConvert
Process video files and clips to prepare on-demand content for distribution or archiving
