Cost - AWS Content Analysis

Cost

You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this solution. The primary cost factors come from using Amazon Rekognition and Amazon OpenSearch Service (successor to Amazon Elasticsearch Service). Video processing incurs a one-time cost of about $0.50 per minute of video duration, but this can vary between $0.10 per minute and $0.60 per minute depending on the video content. The recurring costs for data storage, search, and other services amount to about $3.00 per day.

After a video is uploaded into the solution, the costs for processing are a one-time expense; however, data storage costs occur daily. We recommend creating a budget through AWS Cost Explorer to help manage costs.

For more information about cost, refer to the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution. If you need to process a large volume of videos, we recommend that you contact your AWS account representative for at-scale pricing.
