M2A Media Accelerates AWS Engagement Through Completion of the Foundational Technical Review

Building on its existing work with Amazon Web Services (AWS), M2A Media, an innovator in cloud-based video solutions, today announced that it has completed the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) for its live cloud Internet Protocol (IP) transport product, M2A CONNECT, accelerating AWS engagement and further implementing AWS Well-Architected best practices.

The AWS FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their products or solutions. Led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) the FTR ensures that AWS Partner products and solutions meet a specific set of requirements based around security, reliability, and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework. AWS FTR accreditation demonstrates M2A Media’s commitment to continually aligning with best practices to improve the customer experience.

M2A Media helps broadcasters and rights owners transition their live video workflows to AWS.  M2A CONNECT is a simple to use, feature rich product for scalable video aggregation and distribution of live video streams. It enables media organizations to easily transport live video signals across AWS’s global network. Live feeds can be acquired from source and pushed to air or distributed from rights owners to affiliates. Transporting video through the public cloud lowers cost and adds agility and innovation.

M2A CONNECT allows broadcasters and content owners to tune capacity on-demand, add or remove redundancy, change feed routing rapidly and more through M2A’s API or the intuitive M2A Console.

M2A CONNECT can also be procured through AWS Marketplace, allowing buyers to license the product directly through their company’s AWS account without needing to set up a new agreement with M2A Media directly. This speeds up on-boarding and allows customers to use existing AWS spend commitment

Matt Hughes, Chief Commercial Officer, M2A Media, said, “The completion of the AWS Foundational Technical Review is an important milestone for M2A Media.  It’s a badge we’ll wear with pride as it demonstrates M2A’s products are built using best practices, reducing risks around security, reliability, and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework.  We’d like to extend our thanks to the AWS team, who’ve supported the M2A team brilliantly throughout this whole process.”
