With AWS Elemental MediaPackage, you can now create Amazon CloudFront distributions for live channels from the AWS Management Console. MediaPackage reliably prepares and protects video for delivery over the Internet. From a single video input, MediaPackage creates video streams with DVR-like features and digital rights management (DRM) that are formatted to play on connected TVs, mobile phones, computers, tablets, and game consoles. You can now pair these benefits with the secure, high-performance, and cost-effective global distribution of Amazon CloudFront for delivering live video to viewers.

You can now also add multi-period DASH endpoints to AWS Elemental MediaPackage live channels. This is in addition to support for Apple HLS, including CMAF HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and ISO-DASH endpoints. Support for multi-period DASH endpoints makes it easier to enable dynamic server-side ad insertion for a broader range of devices.

AWS Elemental MediaPackage is available in the US East (Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Paris), and South America (São Paulo) regions.
