AWS Elemental MediaTailor introduces new Configuration Aliases, that can reduce the number of MediaTailor configurations needed to support multiple origins and media paths. This feature enables a single MediaTailor configuration to support URL fields with dynamic user-defined variables.

With Configuration Aliases, you can use variable fields within URLs to support a list of media origins, media paths, regions, or Ad Decision Server (ADS) values. These are resolved at runtime with each variable indexed through player-provided parameters.

Take the example of a customer wanting to set up MediaTailor with 10 channels, each with a unique origin URL domain. Instead of having 10 configurations, a single MediaTailor configuration can now be used with dynamic variables for the origin domain as well as other variables such as media path.

For more information on how to get started using Configuration Aliases, visit the AWS Elemental MediaTailor documentation pages.

AWS Elemental MediaTailor functions independently or as part of AWS Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based video workflows and offer the capabilities you need to transport, create, package, monetize, and deliver video.
