Starting today, you can use AWS Elemental MediaConnect to transport live video using the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol. With the addition of SRT, you have more flexibility and compatibility for creating highly reliable, low-latency live video transport workflows.
SRT in MediaConnect joins a growing list of supported protocols that includes Zixi, Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST), and Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP). Because MediaConnect translates between protocols, you can build a varied ecosystem of reliable live video transport applications running inside and outside of the AWS Cloud.
AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video that enables broadcasters and content owners to build live video workflows and securely share live content with partners and customers. MediaConnect helps customers who run 24x7 TV channels or stream live events transport high-bitrate live video streams into, through, and out of the AWS Cloud in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber services. MediaConnect can function as a standalone service or within a larger video workflow that includes other AWS services, including AWS Elemental Media Services.
