Registration is now open for AWS’s biggest Media & Entertainment event of the year – the AWS M&E Symposium in Los Angeles – held at the Skirball Center in LA on June 18.

AWS customers, including Netflix, the NFL, CBS, and Hallmark, will walk through some bleeding-edge use cases including integration of artificial intelligence and analytics for live and video-on-demand workflows, personalization at massive scale, and media archive monetization strategies. We will close the day with a unique keynote from the AWS Telco team around the AWS perspective on 5G for Hollywood – going beyond buzzwords and into real implications of this emerging technology for how content is created all the way through how it’s distributed and consumed by audiences.

Additionally, new this year we are including developer tracks bringing hands-on-keyboard workshops walking through studio in the cloud, machine learning for media, and media services. This is a great opportunity for engineers and developers to learn from and ask questions to AWS M&E-specialist solution architects.
