This solution creates subtitles for your video-on-demand (VOD) content. Providing localized video with high quality transcriptions, subtitles, and translations can greatly extend the reach of video content to new audiences; it also enhances the understanding of the content by all viewers. However, producing accurate, multi-language subtitles for video is both complex and labor-intensive. Many personnel hours are often spent transcribing, subtitling, translating, and reviewing media assets. Using AWS artificial intelligence (AI) services to assist in the subtitle creation process helps solve these problems.



Use a simple web interface

Upload and analyze videos, and work with automatically generated video subtitles using a simple web-based user interface.

Leverage AWS-native AI services

Automatically extract valuable metadata from video files using Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, and Amazon Comprehend.

Automate manual processes, but control the final result

You can review subtitles and make corrections within the application. Once you are satisfied with the subtitles, rerun the workflow using the corrected input to regenerate downstream results.

Customize AWS AI services to produce more accurate results

Use the application to generate Amazon Transcribe custom vocabularies and Amazon Translate custom terminologies using the corrections you make to the subtitles. Provide these customizations when you upload a video and configure the automated workflow.

Leverage Media Insights on AWS
