Benefits

Designed to Evolve at Your Pace

Scalable, elastic and cost-effective solutions include services for storing, archiving, computing, transcoding, distributing and analyzing a full range of video, audio and digital media content.

Value for Your Customers = Profit for You

Audiences have an embarrassment of options for entertainment, news and information, so we help you focus on what matters: Differentiating and monetizing your content. Extending your reach. Delighting your viewers.

Meet Market Demands Faster & Easier

Software-based video solutions originating in the cloud or on-premises offer pay TV operators, content programmers and broadcasters the flexibility, reliability and scalability to keep pace with market trends.

4K UHD

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

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)

While technical hurdles continue to be addressed and content owners, broadcasters, pay TV operators and device manufacturers decide on formats, content producers and encoding companies can keep the business happy and future-proof their work using one simple solution: software.

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)

High-quality, low-latency video can significantly impact real-time decisions. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) maintains high video quality standards for live applications, overcomes the challenges of constrained network bandwidth and paves the road to 4K UHD TV.

Virtual Reality (VR)

Live virtual reality is increasingly becoming a business reality, but with each new opportunity for enhancing everything from gaming to training to entertainment comes a new set of challenges ranging from production to delivery to consumption.

Red Bull Media House

“At Red Bull Media House, we innovate, surprise and push the limits of technology so we can give wings to creative people. For example, at NAB 2015, we [proved] that 4K content can be sourced and delivered live -- even when it’s originated halfway across the world. We look for the best tools to create the best content. We entrust our stories to Akamai and AWS Elemental.”

Andreas Gall, CTO of Red Bull Media House

BT

“We had to have a glass-to-glass workflow. We chose AWS Elemental as a partner because its solutions are software-based. We know standards are going to change, and our needs are going to change – as they did right up until we launched. The beauty of our two parties working together was instrumental in bringing this service to life.”
