Sinclair Broadcast has deployed its entire broadcast operations on AWS, including live news production and IP-based broadcast origination. Sinclair Broadcast deployed the first series of channels in the AWS Cloud using an AWS Partner solution provided by Amagi for master control playout. This innovative solution has provided Sinclair with centralized governance and management of its 186 different stations. Utilizing a single pane of glass for station operations allows Sinclair to increase productivity, troubleshoot problems and provide a higher quality of service. Sinclair expects to expand this further with the next generation of news production in the cloud. Hear from Sinclair and AWS about the Sinclair journey and where Sinclair will go next.
