Storing, preparing, and delivering media content securely involves leveraging systems that can scale and ensure top-of-the-line security. This webinar explores doing that by implementing workflows in AWS’s highly available, scalable, and secure cloud services such as Amazon S3 for storage, Amazon Elastic Transcoder, and Amazon CloudFront for delivery.
This session came from the Discovery Track at Streaming Media East and shows how you can build a media stack on AWS and use JW Player to deliver protected HTTP Live Streams (HLS) to various devices, including iOS, Android, and Windows desktops.

Video-on-demand use cases: Media workloads that traditional and new media companies are already building in the cloud
The BBC iPlayer is the biggest audio and video-on-demand service in the UK. It receives 10 million video playback requests every day and the service publishes over 10,000 hours of media every week.
Moving iPlayer to the cloud has enabled the BBC to shorten the time-to-market of content from 10 hours to 15 minutes.
In this session, the BBC’s lead architect, Stephen Godwin, describes the approach behind creating iPlayer architecture, which uses Amazon SQS and Amazon SNS in several ways to improve elasticity, reliability, and maintainability. You see how BBC uses AWS messaging to choreograph the 200 microservices in the iPlayer pipeline, maintain data consistency as media traverses the pipeline, and refresh caches to ensure timely delivery of media to users.
This is a rare opportunity to see the internal workings and best practices of one of the largest on-demand content delivery systems operating today. Watch now!
