You now have the option to create an Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) channel using the new Advanced-HD or Advanced-SD channel types, in addition to the original Basic or Standard channel types. Similar to Standard channels, Advanced channel types provide multiple qualities of output, allowing better playback quality across a range of devices and network conditions. Advanced channel types allow you to select “transcode presets” that are designed to match the multiple qualities of output to network performance and viewing devices. Advanced channel types allow available renditions to be capped at a maximum quality level: HD (720p) for Advanced-HD and SD (480p) for Advanced-SD.

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. Send your live streams to Amazon IVS using the broadcast SDKs or standard streaming software such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) and the service does everything you need to make low-latency live video available to any viewer around the world, letting you focus on building interactive experiences alongside the live video.
Visit the AWS region table for a full list of AWS Regions where the Amazon IVS console and APIs for control and creation of video streams are available. 

New input pricing has been introduced, as part of the Advanced channel type introduction. Visit our pricing page for details.
