Overview - Media2Cloud


Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers highly scalable, elastic, and secure cloud services that help customers more easily ingest, store, process, deliver, and manage content in the cloud. Moving your digital asset management to the cloud enables you to take advantage of the latest innovations in asset management and supply chain applications. However, it can be a challenging and slow process to migrate your existing video archives to the cloud.

To help streamline and automate the migration process, AWS offers the Media2Cloud solution. This solution sets up a serverless end-to-end ingest workflow to move your video assets and associated metadata to the cloud. During the migration, the solution analyzes and extracts valuable metadata from your video and images using Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, and Amazon Comprehend. Media2Cloud also includes a simple web interface that enables you to immediately start ingesting and analyzing your content to enrich its value.

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


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running the Media2Cloud solution. The total cost for running this solution depends on the amount of data being ingested and analyzed, running the solutions Amazon Elasticsearch Service cluster, and the size and length of media files analyzed with Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Transcribe, and Amazon Comprehend. For full details, see the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution. For customers who want to process large-scale video archives, we recommend that you contact your AWS account representative for at-scale pricing.
