Record individual participants with Amazon IVS Real-Time Streaming

Posted on: Jun 20, 2024

Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) Real-Time Streaming enables you to build real-time interactive video experiences. With individual participant recording, you can now record each live stream participant’s video or audio to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

When recording is enabled, each participant is automatically recorded and saved as a separate file in the Amazon S3 bucket you select. This new individual recording option is in addition to the existing composite recording feature, which combines all participants into one media file. There is no additional cost for enabling individual participant recording, but standard Amazon S3 storage and request costs apply.

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. 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.
