Q: Can I customize the solution for my specific use case?

A: Media2Cloud is designed to provide a serverless framework for accelerating the setup and configuration of a content ingest process. We recommend that you use this solution as a baseline and customize it to meet your specific needs. You can also engage with an APN Partner to assist in the customization.

Q: Can I deploy the solution in any AWS Region?

A: This solution can be deployed to any AWS Region. If a service, such as Amazon Rekognition, is not currently available in the Region, the solution reduces its functionality. Analysis features such as celebrity recognition, label detection, and face detection will be turned off.

We recommend that you launch the solution in an AWS Region where Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, and Amazon Comprehend are available. For the most current availability of AWS services by Region, refer to the AWS Regional Services List.
