"This product was easy to use and worked well for our needs "

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about this product was how easy it is was to access as well as for others to access from outside of our healthcare network while still being secure. It is also great that it could be accessed at any time.

What do you dislike?

Due to having been a “user” of the content and not a creator, I feel I likely didnt have enough usage to encounter something to dislike. Perhaps if I were one creating content it would be different.

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

My company worked with independent healthcare providers to provide better value based care rather than fee based care. Due to this, there are many metrics that have to be met by each provider. This platform helped the independent physicians communicate with one another in regards to what is working or not working via video. It is great for users to get on at any time to view so “meetings” don’t have to be held.

"Couldn’t be better"

What do you like best?

So far, so good! My company uses this to upload videos for the employees or future employees. The quality is amazing, but of course I wouldn’t expect less from Amazon. It is so easy to make and upload the videos and you can easily store them in iCloud, to send out in the future. Another nice feature is that you can stream live, although we do not use that just yet.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find anything that I dislike. The ease of this is through the roof! I have not run into any issues whatsoever. Contacting amazon IF there is an issue, is very easy and effective as well!

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

As stated above, AWS Elemental MediaConnect is extremely easy to use. You will not regret at minimum, trying it out. Sending out videos to the team is fast, easy, and always secure. For those who use the live stream feature, it is a huge plus. You can get online and stream right away.

"Very Effective for Video Transferring "

What do you like best?

The security encryption embedded into the product allows for use of confidence without having to worry whether the shared files will be compromised. Video uploads/streams have been seamlessly done thanks to the reliability of the product, which makes it a joy to use.

What do you dislike?

Only used it for a month or so when I was attempting to break into video production. I have not really found any issues where I am bothered to the point that I can recall. Maybe the learning curve at first is a bit confusing, but I managed to get over it in a couple of weeks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Maybe make it more known to people. It isn't a service/product that many know about.

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

Storing important media files on a cloud where they can be easily accessible without having to worry about keeping a physical location secure.

Industry grade security is one of the main reason why my clenterprise has stood with AWS mediaconnect for few years now. We work a lot with streaming and AWS has helped us a lot with streaming services.

What do you dislike?

I have also used VLC in the past.The best thing about this software is that it allows you to view the video along with editing the video such as its dimension, color, zoom capacity, geometry of the video. At times AWS media connect iant very user intuitive.

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

AWS Elemental MediaConnect has allowed content owners to send their live content into the cloud, and transmit it to partners for distribution or replicating one source to multiple destinations. It has saved us a lot of time and therefore helped in cost reduction.

"Pretty Useless Software"

What do you like best?

The things I like about it is the fact that you are able to share a wide range of documents all stored in amazon's servers for later use. But there are hundreds of options for this that are way more logical to use

What do you dislike?

The software is hard to understand for someone who does not come from a Tech background. I personally do so was not that hard for me but explaining things to colleagues is difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Dropbox instead as it's cheaper on the yearly plan

Ease of Use is a huge problem. Accessibility is a great benefit
