Technologies

4K UHD
Focus on video quality and avoid hardware and infrastructure headaches

AWS Elemental is a leader in enabling end-to-end live, VOD and linear 4K Ultra HD (UHD) TV workflows, with solutions that can accommodate and translate between competing HDR standards while maintaining the highest video quality.

Ad Insertion
Use the cloud and reap the benefits of dynamic server-side ad insertion

Server-side ad insertion (SSAI) enables pay TV operators, broadcasters and publishers to dynamically insert personalized ads as video content is delivered to consumers, allowing video experiences to be monetized more effectively in real time.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)
A word to the wise while standards shake out: Improve the pixels

HDR standards in development cover more than higher peak brightness and lower black levels. HDR also includes expanded color space, greater bit depth and static or dynamic metadata. As displays evolve, HDR challenges video providers to render images without running up against unworkable limitations.

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)
Reduce costs, increase quality and overcome bandwidth-constrained networks

The compression efficiencies HEVC offer allow media companies to create higher quality video streams with lower bitrates than previous generation codecs. Results: Lower content delivery costs and improved viewer experiences.

Virtual Reality (VR)
Go beyond gaming and into resolving real-world business matters in real time

Virtual and augmented reality experiences open doors to unprecedented opportunities for real-time communication, interactivity, education and problem-solving on a previously unimaginable scale.
