Deluxe, a world-leading video creation and distribution company, is working with AWS to digitally transform their movie business. Deluxe wanted to speed up their media distribution process and improve data security while also reducing costs and eliminating errors. Their Digital Cinema Network uses AWS Snowcone to connect the space-constrained movie theater environment to content stored in Amazon S3, and uses AWS DataSync to accelerate online distribution of movies and advertising to theaters in 38 key media markets worldwide. This solution allows Deluxe to reduce reliance on error-prone, costly, and manual media distribution, while improving data security. It also enables their studio and theater customers to respond faster to local market preferences so they can increase their revenue streams.
“Our work with AWS is a fundamental part of Deluxe’s strategy. One VZN is a leap in innovation for digital cinema distribution which has been stagnant in the past decade, fundamentally changing not only the economics of film distribution for exhibitors and studios around the globe, but enabling new theatrical experiences for viewers as well. The combination of AWS Snowcone, AWS DataSync, and Amazon S3 are essential to One VZN – the collective services distinguish themselves from any other cloud offerings today. The secure, compact AWS Snowcone device, in conjunction with Deluxe’s powerful One platform creates a truly differentiated solution of the industry.”

SmugMug is a premium online photo and video sharing service for photographers and videographers to store, search, and share their content.
“For over a decade SmugMug has been storing billions of photos and videos for our millions of users in an accessible, available, and secure way using Amazon S3. With the introduction of AWS Snowcone, our customers now have a small, ultra-portable device with 8 terabytes of storage that allows them to capture more content during a photography or videography shoot, process the data locally, and then upload it to the cloud faster than ever. Snowcone’s small form factor and rugged, secure design allows us to simply ship these devices to customers so they can seamlessly copy and preserve their precious and valuable media whether in the comfort of their own home or out on a shoot off the grid in jungles, deserts, forests, mountains, in the middle of the ocean, and even in drone use cases. Customers can then ship the device back to AWS or retain the device for multiple shoots all while transferring their data online with AWS DataSync. Snowcone helps our users and photographers effortlessly and flexibly share their passion, work, and inspiration with each other leveraging the SmugMug platform.”
