 Amazon Data Services Japan (booth number: 6705) introduced a brand new media workflow on Amazon Cloud. The service has the advantage of having no upfront fees and a usage-based payment model, and leverages the strengths of Amazon Cloud to provide a the necessary global infrastructure for video distribution. It will greatly reduce the costs involved in building and operating a media workflow.

- A Platform for “Saving, Converting, and Distributing” Videos on the Cloud
Amazon features a wealth of imaging solutions for “saving, converting, and distributing" videos. For example, “Amazon CloudFront” is a web service for distributing content. Since it has a usage-based payment model and is self-service, it can be used at any time.
“Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)” is an affordable and long-life online storage service. “Amazon Glacier” is a long-life archiving storage service even more affordable than Amazon S3.

“Amazon Elastic Transcoder” is a video conversion service on Amazon Cloud. It can transcode video files so that they can be played on devices such as smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Furthermore, on the security side, it has received the certification of many third parties including the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America).

- Various Cloud Based Software for the Imaging Industry
Amazon’s partnerships for the provision of essential features for video distributing are growing, such as for high speed file transfer, transcoding, storage, content protection (DRM), and video CMS.

High speed file transfer tools such as aspera and SIGNIANT, Harmonic or Elemental’s encoding systems, Adobe, Wowza, Microsoft’s video transmission system, Autodesk, Sony Media Cloud, Webideo’s video editing system, and others, can all be used. There is no longer any need for software management, hardware scaling, performance adjustments, or other kinds of infrastructure management.

Today, November 20th, from 12:30 to 14:00, Mark Reiberg, the general manager of Amazon Web Service’s Media & Entertainment division, will give a speech on “The advancement of media workflow using the cloud.” Advance reservations are not required.
