Networking in the cloud, by rights, should be the same in your office but with it’s a lot easier when you’re led through it. From subnets to VPN’s, this talk from AWS makes sure you can get your VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) talking to other parts of your cloud infrastructure and your office.
Starting with the basics and building up, Perry and Tom take us through the IP address allocation, address choices, firewall configuration, security configuration and then on to Direct Connect, VPNs sharing VPC resources and much more.
From the AWS Summit 2019, this is a great talk for those who know networking well and are new to AWS, as well as those who are comfortable with AWS names, but are a little rusty on the finer points of networking.

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.
Date: February 27, 2019 at 8am PT / 4pm GMT and a second session at 10am IST / 12:30pm SGT
Whilst The Broadcast Knowledge avoids product walkthroughs in favour of more educational videos and webinars, AWS is so large that, in some ways, just understanding it is helpful even if you don’t use it and the building blocks with which you build your systems is more or less replicated in other vendors’ platforms so it does pay to keep up. So here we have a webinar on the workflows you can build with AWS – and it’s on twice so you can’t use timezones as an excuse not to attend!
This webcast discusses how new video workflow solutions from AWS directly address the changes businesses are going through. Highlights include:
Fast and affordable media production and archiving
Accessible content lakes and more efficient supply chains
Upgrading viewer personalization through machine learning
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.
Amazon Web Services WAF
Learn how the BBC and Nine Network have enhanced the user experience and created new business models and opportunities, giving audiences more choices with more features, all while maintaining broadcast-grade service. When your business is providing live content to viewers, you know that there are no second chances. Audiences have come to expect a faultless live broadcast, and providers know they must ensure reliability with failover and redundancy plans. Learn how migrating to the cloud offers a new way to architect live-streaming workflows while maintaining the highest standards of resilience.
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.
