AWS will be at IBC 2019 to highlight advancements in content creation and distribution, media supply chains, machine learning, asset management, and content personalization and monetization.

When you talk about cloud computing, you end up mentioning Amazon Web Services (AWS), as the company is considered to offer the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 165 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers —including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs.

Now, AWS takes to IBC 2019, to showcase flexible, end-to-end cloud workflows for content creation through distribution. The company will exhibit a broad range of AWS technologies that streamline high-quality content creation and delivery and enable advanced machine learning workflows for captioning, personalization, and compliance. Demonstrations will illustrate how customers can tap into AWS services to more efficiently develop content, quickly deploy new offerings, streamline backend processes with automation, and protect, store, and manage assets with less overhead.

Highlights include:

Next-generation encoding and video processing – Demonstrations showcase the latest video encoding and processing technologies for live and on-demand content including AV1 video compression, content-aware encoding, Common Media Application Format (CMAF), and Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate (QVBR) rate control future proofing the technology investment.
