Pac-12 Networks goes all-in with AWS and cloud workflow

The US sports digital, cable and satellite service Pac-12 Networks is on course to produce 850 matches during the 2018-19 season and has found what it considers to be the perfect production partner in Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Using a variety of AWS Elemental media solutions, Pac-12 Networks (Pac-12 Conference’s production wing) has transitioned to a cloud-based workflow, one that runs from creation to distribution with all stops in between.

Pac-12’s relationship with AWS goes back several years, with AWS providing technology used on-premises in a more limited basis. But this season’s cloud partnership has produced not only new tools but a new way of working.

“They’re definitely very much embracing all the services that we’ve made available,” says Aslam Khader, chief product officer, AWS Elemental. “We think this is just the start of a really interesting relationship.”
