Thank you for your feedback.
I understand that the explanation can be a little confusing however it is generally safe to assume that the MAM solution can’t directly stream to Kinesis. This is a professional level exam question and AWS assumes you have a deep understanding or working knowledge depending on the given scenario. For this scenario, you need to have at least an overview of the main features of how MAM Solutions typically work.
Usually, MAM solutions work only within a company on-premises network and its main features are to only compress, decompress, backup, copy, and/or archive files to local or remote storage. Typical MAM programs do not have the ability to playback or stream video content over the internet to other services. Therefore, for this solution to work, you will need to copy the video files on the Tape Gateway first which will be copied over to Amazon S3 Tape Library. From there, you can process the video files as you want to, for example – pass them on Amazon Rekognition to create a catalog of faces, etc.
Hope this helps.
