AWS Elemental MediaLive now supports Advanced Video Coding (AVC) for ultra-high definition (UHD) outputs. This allows you to incorporate an AVC UHD output in your adaptive bitrate (ABR) stacks for live channels; for example, you can create an ABR stack with one AVC output with a UHD resolution of 3840x2160, along with 1440p, 1080p, and 720p HD resolution outputs in a single output group.
MediaLive already supported HEVC UHD outputs and now, with AVC support, you can stream UHD to more platforms, like 360 virtual reality (VR) devices. The new AVC UHD output is capable of bitrates up to 40mbps at 30fps. To learn more about pricing for AVC UHD outputs, please visit the MediaLive pricing page.
