Introducing AWS Elemental MediaConnect

Posted on: Nov 27, 2018

Today we announced the general availability of AWS Elemental MediaConnect, a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video. Using MediaConnect, broadcasters and content owners can cost-effectively send high-value live content into the cloud, securely transmit it to partners for distribution, and replicate it to multiple destinations around the globe. Build mission-critical live video transport workflows in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber, with broadcast-grade monitoring to maintain confidence that your video is delivered. MediaConnect combines reliable video transport, highly secure stream sharing, and real-time network traffic and video monitoring that allow you to focus on your content, not your transport infrastructure.
