FOX Corporation (FOX) produces and distributes news, sports, and entertainment content.
Fox re-imagined itself in 2019, leaving behind legacy infrastructure and using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to transform its existing operations. FOX continues to innovate using AWS media, data, and compute solutions while migrating to the cloud. After transitioning over 8 petabytes of content from on-premises in 6 weeks, FOX built MediaCloud on AWS to process and distribute programming with more functionality and speed, achieving an industry first to deliver uncompressed live video with zero redundancy. Using machine learning (ML), FOX generates natural language in-game storylines for live sports commentaries. Leveraging the scale and reliability of AWS, FOX broadcasts thousands of high-profile events, such as the Super Bowl LIV, to millions of viewers, and fosters innovation by building new ways to produce and deliver media.
