Run low-latency broadcast workloads with the most agility, elasticity, scalability, and reliability of any cloud

AWS is the leading choice for broadcasters

Broadcasters run more television channel ingest, processing, creation, and distribution workloads on AWS than anywhere else. Customers including FOX, ViacomCBS, and Discovery pioneer the future of broadcasting using an unmatched portfolio of purpose-built AWS services and appliances, along with partner solutions. Using AWS Elemental MediaConnect, a high-quality transport service for live video, and AWS Elemental Live, Conductor Live, and Statmux software and hardware for encoding live outputs, customers can position on-premises workloads where they are needed, building broadcast workflows on AWS for live events and 24/7 channels. 

Paul Cheesbrough of FOX on using AWS to modernize and innovate (1:51)


Accelerate with ready-made solutions and partners
With a broadcast solution built on AWS, you can iterate quickly and experiment with new delivery options. Stay in front of your viewers as they move between platforms, and adapt to changes in behavior quickly. The flexibility made possible by operating in the cloud opens up your content to new opportunities and provides access to engineering talent from almost anywhere.
Achieve unmatched performance and high-quality video
With the most purpose-built software, appliances, and services for broadcasting, you can send uncompressed video over the AWS network with latency of less than one frame of video. AWS Partners provide end-to-end distributed video solutions, with higher-quality and lower latency inputs for live cloud processing.
Increase agility, efficiency, and reduce costs
Optimize costs and unlock opportunities to expand faster than was possible before with physical data centers and playout hubs. AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure provides the broadest selection of instance types on the most extensive cloud platform, so you can select the most cost-efficient, performant instances, and position them close to the camera for low latency and inexpensive backhaul.
