Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) now lets developers combine video from multiple hosts into the source for a live stream. With this feature, Amazon IVS adds a new resource called a stage. A stage is a virtual space where participants can exchange audio and video in real time. You then broadcast a stage to Amazon IVS channels to reach a larger audience. You can also build applications where audience members can be brought “on stage” to contribute to the live conversation.

When using the multiple host feature, you are charged for the duration of time each host is participating or “on stage” in addition to normal rates for video input and output for your live channel. Visit the Amazon IVS pricing page for more information.

Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) is a managed live streaming solution that is designed to be quick and easy to set up, and ideal for creating interactive video experiences. Video ingest and delivery are available around the world over a managed network of infrastructure optimized for live video.
