AWS Elemental MediaLive is a video processing service that lets you encode high-quality live video streams for broadcast television and multiscreen devices. The service functions independently or as part of AWS Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer you the capabilities you need to create, package, and deliver video.
With push-button deployment, you can use AWS Elemental MediaLive to stand up live channels in minutes with resources that automatically scale up and down based on load and number of channels. To achieve the same result with on-premises solutions requires planning, procurement, installation, provisioning, configuration, setup, testing, and troubleshooting that can take weeks, months, or even years before going into production. The channel-based, pay-as-you-go service simplifies operational complexity, improves cost efficiency, and minimizes financial risk. For 24x7 live video workflows or event-based live streams, AWS Elemental MediaLive gives you full control over encoding parameters, and support for standard video players and CDNs offers flexible delivery options.
