Channel Assembly with AWS Elemental MediaTailor now lets you schedule programs based on a wall-clock time. Using "linear mode" you have fine-grained control of when individual sources will be played and which sources are to follow on a channel output. Looping mode is also available where timing on individual programs is loosely defined to ensure that there is content always playing on a channel output.

Using Channel Assembly with MediaTailor, you can create linear channels that are delivered over-the-top (OTT) in a cost-efficient way, even for channels with low viewership. Virtual live streams are created with a low running cost by using existing multi-bitrate encoded and packaged content. You can also monetize Channel Assembly linear streams by inserting ad breaks in your programs without having to condition the content with SCTE-35 markers.

For more information about using Channel Assembly with MediaTailor, read this AWS News Blog, and go to the MediaTailor documentation pages.
