Have you ever wanted to find a specific person among hours of video footage?

Perhaps you're preparing a video for a 21st birthday celebration, wanting to find happy memories of your birthday child. Maybe you are scouring video footage, looking to see what a specific employee did on their last day at work. Or it may be that you want to produce a highlight reel of your own efforts at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

In this lab, you will learn how to combine the capabilities of Amazon Rekognition Video and Amazon Elastic Transcoder to automatically convert a long video into a highlight video showing all footage of a given person.

This lab uses the AWS Command-Line Interface (CLI) to access Amazon Rekognition Video and then uses a Python script that uses the AWS SDK to access Amazon Elastic Transcoder.

Topics covered

By the end of this lab, you will be able to:

  • Create a face collection in Amazon Rekognition, teaching it the people that should be recognized
  • Use Amazon Rekognition Video to search for faces in a saved video file
  • Collect the individual timestamps where faces were recognized and convert them into clips of defined duration
  • Stitch together a new video using Amazon Elastic Transcoder
