If you use Adobe Experience Manager set up for different environments, such as one for development, one for staging, and one for live production, you need to 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, AEM is responsible for master assets and synchs with Dynamic Media for asset processing and publishing:
1. When the master asset is uploaded to AEM, 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.
2. After the renditions are generated, AEM can securely access and preview the remote Dynamic Media renditions (no binaries are sent back to the AEM instance).
3. 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.
