Analyze your content and extract meaningful data from your media files

Publication date: November 2020 (last update: October 2021)

The AWS Content Analysis solution helps you to obtain a broader understanding of your media libraries; and analyze and extract valuable metadata. This solution combines Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, and Amazon Comprehend to offer a suite of comprehensive capabilities to analyze media content. Amazon Rekognition provides highly accurate object, scene, and activity detection; person identification and pathing; and celebrity recognition in videos. Amazon Transcribe provides an automatic speech recognition service while Amazon Translate translates the content between languages. Amazon Comprehend extracts key phrases and entities from the media file transcripts in AWS accounts without machine learning expertise.

The AWS Content Analysis solution is a tailored application based on the Media Insights Engine (MIE) solution. The MIE provides a framework to make it easier for developers to build applications that transform or analyze videos on AWS. For more information about how this solution can be modified to your own needs, refer to the README.md file on the MIE GitHub repository.

This implementation guide discusses architectural considerations and configuration steps for deploying the AWS Content Analysis solution in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. It includes links to an AWS CloudFormation template that launches and configures the AWS services required to deploy this solution using AWS best practices for security and availability.

The guide is intended for IT infrastructure architects and developers who have practical experience architecting in the AWS Cloud.
