AWS debuts “game-changing” Cloud Digital Interface for playout, graphics, switching and more

AWS has unveiled a new network technology that allows software vendors and AWS partners to build live video applications that can connect products and services within the AWS Cloud.

Cloud Digital Interface (CDI) enables users to deploy live video solutions, such as TV channel playout, motion graphic insertion, multi-viewer applications, live video production switching, video frame rate and colour space conversion, forensic watermarking and video encoding/decoding in the AWS Cloud.

“The ability to transport uncompressed video between Amazon EC2 instances and Cloud services with high reliability and low latency is an absolutely game changing technology for broadcast and live production workflows in the Cloud,” said Dan Turow, Vice President of File Based Solutions at Evertz. “We have been working closely with the AWS engineering team on testing and integrating the AWS CDI SDK. It clearly has the potential to deliver exactly what the industry has been waiting for and subsequently unlocking numerous uncompressed and low latency applications in the Cloud.”
