Intelsat is introducing Cloud Connect Media to give programmers secure access between the IntelsatOne Media Network and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The service is designed to give content providers a private, secure gateway between AWS and the Intelsat global media distribution network. Intelsat is an AWS Select Partner in the AWS Partner Network. 

Cloud Connect Media expands the capabilities of Intelsat’s Cloud Connect, which was launched in 2020, to give enterprises access to their cloud applications anywhere at any time. It is currently available in the U.S. and Europe. 

Intelsat said this new collaboration gives the company’s media customers a more efficient way to connect to playout, video editing, cloud resources while still accessing the IntelsatOne media network for centralized distribution and managed services. C-SPAN will be the first Intelsat customer to use Cloud Connect Media. 

“Intelsat’s rollout of Cloud Connect Media helps complete C-SPAN’s transition to a total cloud configuration by providing a fast and reliable path from our uplink location directly to Amazon Web Services, with the most up-to-date connectivity available,” said Roxane Kerr, vice president of Technology for C-SPAN.
