Veritone Now Supports AWS for Media & Entertainment Initiative


Artificial Intelligence-as-a-sales aid pioneer Veritone is now offering support for a new AWS initiative that is designed to enhance Veritone’s AI-enabled applications to provide new ways for business and content creators to find, share and monetize their content.

AWS for Media & Entertainment is an initiative featuring new and existing services and solutions from AWS and AWS Partners, built for content creators, rights holders, producers, broadcasters, and distributors.

AWS adds the newly announced Amazon Nimble Studio to a portfolio of “purpose-built media and entertainment industry services.”

AWS for Media & Entertainment also aligns AWS and AWS Partner capabilities against five solution areas: Content Production; Media Supply Chain & Archive; Broadcast; Direct-to-Consumer & Streaming; and Data Science & Analytics for Media.

Veritone’s AI-powered Digital Media Hub, combined with the power of the underlying AWS infrastructure, “leverages cutting-edge technology to safely and more efficiently facilitate the distributing, archiving and storing, as well as licensing and monetizing, their content securely in the cloud,” the company says.

Veritone Digital Media Hub is a cloud-native, AI-powered media management platform hosted on AWS that is specifically designed for content owners in sports, film, TV, news and media enterprises. The platform is built on Veritone’s aiWARE operating system.

Across all Veritone platforms, AWS cloud storage and compute services correlate 16 million unstructured data objects per month, process 1 million hours of audio and TV media per month and perform 2.5 million AI cognition tasks, including transcription, translation, and face recognition, per day.

“Our collaboration with AWS strengthens our ability to help media and entertainment companies solve some of the biggest challenges they face in digitally transforming how they manage and ultimately monetize their content,” Veritone President Ryan Steelberg said. “Combining the power of AWS with our AI-enabled Digital Media Hub, we ensure companies’ valuable media assets are secured in the cloud, accessible anywhere, and placed a few keystrokes away for distribution and monetization.”
