Amazon Rekognition Video is a machine learning powered video analysis service that detects objects, scenes, celebrities, text, activities, and any inappropriate content from your videos stored in Amazon S3. Rekognition Video also provides highly accurate facial analysis and facial search capabilities to detect, analyze, and compare faces.
Each result or detection is paired with a timestamp so that you can easily create an index for detailed video search, or navigate quickly to an interesting part of the video for further analysis. For objects, faces, text, and people, Rekognition Video also returns bounding box coordinates, which is the specific location of the detection in the frame.
