As one of the first companies in Australia to use AWS Elemental MediaConnect, a cloud video transfer service, Network 10 will gain access to secure and reliable delivery of live video content.
The technology-enabled Network 10 to transport video from Kruger National Park in South Africa to its Sydney-based production studio for I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here during the 2019 season and will be used again in the upcoming Season 7.
Using a combination of AWS Elemental MediaConnect and AWS Advanced APN Technology Partner, Aspera’s High-Speed Transfer Service, Network 10 can reduce its production turn-around window from overnight to less than two hours.
This collaboration complements existing AWS Media Services used by Network 10, including AWS Elemental MediaLive and AWS Elemental MediaConvert. AWS Elemental MediaLive provides Network 10 with a streaming tool that encodes live video for play on any device, from broadcast television to Internet-connected devices, such as smart phones and connected TVs.
With AWS Elemental MediaConvert, Network 10 can process video files and clips to prepare on-demand content for distribution or archiving.
Jason Tuendemann, chief information & technology officer, Network 10, said: “By working with AWS, we have been able to speed up this process and deliver more content, and more importantly, richer content for production and advertisers.”
