How Discovery Moves Assets (and Producers) into the Cloud

A globe with glowing, colored lines encircling it as well as white lines going from major cities to other cities.

In 2015, the Discovery Communications technology team made a decision to innovate its video processing by moving its systems to the cloud.

But how could this new cloud infrastructure accommodate the production workflows of Discovery’s hundreds of external producers—providing thousands of hours of video programming—without disrupting their important creative work in the video supply chain?

Using Signiant’s Flight technology, Discovery Communications found a way to:

  • Eliminate the delays and inefficiencies of getting media assets into the cloud
  • Retain their highly effective metadata model to automate cloud processes
  • Keep producers aware of errors and status so they could act immediately

Check out the comprehensive case study to learn from Discovery’s VP of Technology Development & Strategy, Josh Derby, about how it all came together.
