"Great Job Tool"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can re-play audiovisual content anytime I want in great quality. It helps us out a lot when we have conferences from our collegues around the world and we can still see them like if they were standing in front of us, everytime. It's very easy to use, it allows various devices to securely stream video, audio and data, making it an excellent work tool for various purposes.

What do you dislike?

We actually and honestly have not found any downsides, we've been thoroughly enjoying it and we definitely plan to keep using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend it, it will help your company members get more involved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My workplace offers lots of training conferences, since things are constantly changing, so technology like this helps us out a lot. Sometimes we get training from people all around the world and I feel like this kind of software can facilitate the process.

"Interesting New Software"

What do you like best?

We wanted to find a better way to stream conferences, talks, and anything we need to broadcast for student and staff activities and keep it centralized. We loved that it keeps everything organized and we are in control of the media that is presented to the staff, etc.

What do you dislike?

It took a bit of time to set-up and needed IT to complete the setup as it was not readily implementable from our HR end. Since it was new, we need additional time to understand the process, but it was easy with few hiccups since that time. However, the customer service behind this service desperately needs work. Simple questions were not terribly helpful, likely due to speaking with other countries when trying to resolve an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try, worth seeing if it can support your team. It is definitely a one-of-a-kind software that could realize a lot of benefits for streamlining media and reducing lag-time with media demonstrations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are still evaluating this new process for broadcasting and streaming, yet we have definitely streamlined this process and made board and staff meeting much more supported by technology and not relying on the staff in the room to ensure that it all goes smoothly.

"Easy to use streaming device for my home "

What do you like best?

What I find most helpful about Amazon Kinesis Video Streams is that it allows me to stream videos on all my devices such as the webcams in my home. It helps me also with the playback features so I can have the videos from my webcam stored securely. I was introduced to this software because it is being used at my work for video chats and I found it to be very effective and reliable.

What do you dislike?

The least helpful things about the software is that there is not really a tutorial to help if you have any questions about how to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this software to do video chats with business partners that are out of state. We prefer this software over Skype because of all the features it offers

"Amazon Kinesis Video Streams is a fantastic solution for video/audio processing"

What do you like best?

AWS always managed to introduce new products that just make our lives easier. While working on a machine learning project, my team needed to ingest live data from multiple camera feed and do object detection. We didn't knew of any existing solution and would had to build one ourselves. With Amazon Kinesis Video Streams, we didn't have to do any of those.

It ingests video/audio/image data from multiple sources in real-time, hence it's scalable. We didn't run into any issues.

It allows to build real time batch processing applications, think of Amazon kinesis data streams and this works on the same level. With Amazon Kinesis Video Streams, our focus shifting in building the product rather than manage the infrastructure which we all know is tedious

What do you dislike?

I used this service for one project and don't have much to compare it against and hence don't know many shortcomings. One thing for sure is this has a some good learning curve and since this is relatively new service, you won't find many blogs/ video tutorials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would surely say to try this once and since this a pay as you go model there is no need of substantial investment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to build a object detection task by ingesting data from multiple input sources

"Amazon is Amazing"

What do you like best?

Amazon Kinesis Video Streams are so easy to set up and they never seem to glitch or take a long time to load. You can store so much video on one platform that can be used from any device. My app can access and play this video so simply.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Amazon Kinesis Video can take a second or two longer than i would like to load videos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to stream the videos right from the app which is great, because Amazon allows us to own the videos and content.

What I like best is that my students are able to access the video streams without my help because of how easy it is to use.

It is kind of a hassle because they do not have a variety of videos to choose from.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes my job so much easier because I taught the students once how to use the video stream and they can now use it without my help.

"Stream Securely from Many Devices"

What do you like best?

One can literally stream from a drone, a smartphone, a dash cam, etc. It's live and you can customize its retention. You also pay as you go.

What do you dislike?

Developing your own monitoring application is a bit complex. However, you do not have to use this feature as you can choose to have it monitored automatically in the console.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would advise playing around with it for a while before committing to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its a serverless program, so there is no infrastructure to set up or manage. It happens automatically. So you can focus on the applications.
