Migrating your digital asset management to the cloud allows you to take advantage of the latest innovations in asset management and supply chain applications. However, transferring your existing video archives to the cloud can be a challenging and slow process.

The Media2Cloud on AWS solution helps streamline and automate the content ingestion process. It sets up serverless end-to-end ingestion and analysis workflows to move your video assets and associated metadata to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. During the migration, this solution analyzes and extracts machine learning metadata from your video and images using Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, and Amazon Comprehend. It extracts tabular information from scanned documents using Amazon Textract. This solution also includes a web interface to help you to immediately start ingesting and analyzing your content.

Media2Cloud on AWS is designed to provide a serverless framework for accelerating the setup and configuration of a content ingestion and analysis process. We recommend that you use this solution as a baseline and customize it to meet your specific needs.

This implementation guide provides an overview of the Media2Cloud solution, its reference architecture and components, considerations for planning the deployment, configuration steps for deploying the solution to the AWS Cloud.

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