AWS Elemental MediaPackage Supports Redundant Inputs for Live Channels

Posted on: Aug 28, 2018

With AWS Elemental MediaPackage, you can now configure a live video channel with two input sources. This allows MediaPackage to switch between inputs if an issue is detected, supporting a highly available live channel output and a more reliable user experience for viewers. To learn more about how input redundancy works, visit the AWS Elemental MediaPackage documentation page.

With MediaPackage, you can reduce workflow complexity, increase origin resiliency, and better protect multiscreen content without the risk of under or over-provisioning infrastructure. To learn more, please visit
