Webinar Date: Thursday May 30th 2019
Time: Duration 4 hours. 7am PT / 10am ET / 15:00 BST
AWS is synonymous with cloud computing so an insight into managing media on AWS is an insight into cloud computing in general. AWS is offering a 4-hour showcase of implementing content creation, distribution and your supply chain in the cloud.
The online event starts with a keynote on the motivations for moving your workflows into the cloud and how AWS meets them. After that, there are 3 tracks which track the 3 topics.
The complete list is available here. AWS Elemental dominates the distribution track explaining the use cases that can be met and going through the many in-cloud transcoding options.
The creation and supply chain tracks finish with a customer spotlight from FuseFX and Deluxe respectively. For anyone considering a move to the cloud for any part of their operation, these sessions should shed light on what is actually achievable and what is still wishful thinking.
AWS is synonymous with cloud computing and whether you use it or not, knowing how to do things in AWS reaps benefits when trying to understand or implement systems in a cloud infrastructure. Knowing what’s possible and what others are doing is really useful, so whilst I don’t usually cover heavily product-specific resources here on The Broadcast Knowledge I still believe that knowing AWS is knowing part of the industry.
Here, there are 3 consecutive webinars which cover building a live streaming channel from the fundamentals through to making it operational and ongoing monitoring and maintenance.
Session one at 3pm GMT looks at end-to-end workflows and strategies for redundancy. It looks at both contribution of video into the cloud as much as what happens when it arrives and the delivery.
Session two at 4pm GMT looks examines the more complex workflows where you spread processing/failover across multiple regions and other similar situations.
Session three is the last of the day at 5pm GMT looking at setting up end-to-end monitoring to take the guesswork out of delivering the service on an on-going basis.
Amazon Web Services is back with another free conference, this time looking at video tech innovation, content distribution and more! From business to tech, there are free sessions for whatever angle you look at broadcasting from.
In this webcast, AWS Elemental dives into a topic other companies don’t discuss: The video encoding techniques some vendors use to sway judgment during proof-of-concept demos.
Improve your discerning eye and your analysis acumen, and obtain essential knowledge:
Methods and best practices for evaluating video quality
Examples of scenes which look totally different, but have the same metrics score
Important considerations for accurate evaluation of video results
Subjective vs. Objective results
How encoder settings affect output and how you can fine tune them for the best results
What is Adaptive Quantization and how can it improve your video output quality
Encoding techniques that impress in shootouts but might not be practical in production
Video encoding comparisons should inform, not fool. Learn what you need to know, before you start the process.
