If you use Adobe Experience Manager set up for different environments, such as development, staging, and production, configure Dynamic Media Cloud Services for each one of those environments.
Architecture diagram of Dynamic Media - Scene7 mode
The following architecture diagram describes how Dynamic Media - Scene7 mode works.
With the new architecture, Experience Manager is responsible for primary source assets and synchs with Dynamic Media for asset processing and publishing:
When the primary source asset is uploaded to Experience Manager, it is replicated to Dynamic Media. At that point, Dynamic Media handles all asset processing and rendition generation, such as video encoding and dynamic variants of an image.
(In Dynamic Media - Scene7 mode, the default upload file size is 2 GB or less. To enable upload file sizes of 2 GB up to 15 GB, see (Optional) Configure Dynamic Media - Scene7 mode for upload of assets larger than 2 GB.)
After the renditions are generated, Experience Manager can securely access and preview the remote Dynamic Media renditions (no binaries are sent back to the Experience Manager instance).
After content is ready to be published and approved, it triggers the Dynamic Media service to push content out to delivery servers and cache content at the CDN (Content Delivery Network).
