Public cloud provider Amazon Web Services today announced that it has acquired Elemental Technologies, a startup with video processing services to repurpose traditional video content into digital formats.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but a report from The Information earlier today pegged the deal at $500 million.

AWS, a fast-growing division of Amazon.com and the biggest public cloud available today, intends to roll out new services based on Elemental’s technology, according to a statement from Amazon.

And the deal may help AWS branch out further beyond the public cloud into companies’ on-premises data centers.
