AWS Elemental MediaLive now supports decoding audio from sources with Dolby E compressed tracks. Dolby E supports delivery of eight discrete audio source channels in a PCM (pulse code modulated) stereo pair. With this feature you can deliver content with different language tracks and/or high channel count spatial audio from a single high-quality source. This is useful for international syndication of sports and events where commentary and immersive audio are present.

For more information on how to enable this feature, visit the MediaLive documentation for Dolby E input audio. Dolby E audio decoding is available via the MediaLive Advanced Audio add-on functionality.

AWS Elemental MediaLive is a broadcast-grade live video processing service. It lets you create high-quality live video streams for delivery to broadcast televisions and internet-connected multiscreen devices, like connected TVs, tablets, smartphones, and set-top boxes.

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