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 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 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 discusses architectural considerations and configuration steps for deploying the Media2Cloud solution in the AWS Cloud. It includes links to an AWS CloudFormation template that launches, configures, and runs 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 working with video workflows and architecting in the AWS Cloud.
