Architecture overview - Content Localization on AWS

Architecture overview

Deploying this solution with the default parameters builds the following environment in the AWS Cloud.

      Content Localization on AWS architecture

Figure 1: Content Localization on AWS architecture

This architecture depends on the AWS Media Insights Engine (MIE) development framework, which must be deployed in the AWS account in order to deploy the solution. MIE can be deployed separately or together with this solution as an option. For a full description of the MIE architecture, refer to the implementation guide.

The AWS CloudFormation template deploys the following infrastructure:

  1. An instance of the AWS Media Insights Engine solution.


    If you already have a deployed instance of MIE that you would like to use, you can deploy this solution with an alternate template.

  2. An Amazon CloudFront distribution to serve the solution’s web application. 

  3. An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) web source bucket for hosting the static web application.

  4. An Amazon Cognito user pool to provide a user directory.

  5. An Amazon Cognito identity pool to provide federation with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for authentication and authorization to the web application.

  6. Amazon API Gateway endpoints for the MIE workflow API, the MIE data plane API and the Amazon OpenSearch Service API endpoint.

  7. An AWS Step Functions workflow created by MIE. The content localization workflow consists of AWS Lambda functions that run jobs in Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, AWS Elemental MediaConvert, and Amazon Polly. These Lambda functions also interact with the MIE data plane API to store and retrieve media objects and metadata returned by media analysis jobs. The workflow can also optionally run Amazon Rekognition and Amazon Comprehend to provide additional analysis of the input.

  8. A Lambda function to extract, transform, and load media metadata from the MIE data pipeline into an Amazon OpenSearch Service cluster. This lambda function is invoked by the MIE data plane DynamoDB stream whenever asset metadata is modified in the MIE data plane.

  9. An Amazon OpenSearch Service cluster to index media metadata.
