Digital Transformation in the Cloud

In 2018, in conjunction with adoption of the Arc Publishing platform, Graham Media Group began migrating to AWS and AWS Elemental infrastructure for encoding, streaming and Cloud workflows. In this session, learn how Graham is using AWS Media Solutions to accelerate asset management and archive migration to the cloud with machine learning-driven tagging and search as well as automation of captions and translation.

Graham Media Group owns seven local television stations as well as Social News Desk, a leading provider of social media management tools designed to connect newsrooms with their users. The stations also broadcast digital channels focusing on classic television and lifestyle programming, in addition to operating market-leading websites, mobile sites and mobile apps delivering breaking news, weather and community news, reaching millions of users across each platform. All are deeply involved in local initiatives and public service projects designed to serve, inform and improve their respective communities.
