AWS Elemental MediaPackage Documentation

AWS Elemental MediaPackage is a video delivery service that allows video providers to distribute streaming video at scale. It simplifies the preparation of your live and on-demand video content for delivery to multiple devices, and improves the viewer experience with advanced features. With MediaPackage, customers can reduce workflow complexity, increase origin resiliency, and better protect multiscreen assets without the risk of under or over-provisioning video infrastructure. 

Comprehensive Output Formats

AWS Elemental MediaPackage supports a wide range of standards and formats commonly used to stream video.

Flexible Video Content Protection

AWS Elemental MediaPackage lets you protect your streams by integrating with multiple Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies, based on the capabilities of each playback device.

High Availability

AWS Elemental MediaPackage helps you scale based on the incoming stream requests you receive. MediaPackage has a built-in origin shield and cache for reliable performance when accessed directly by one or more CDNs, and runs on redundant infrastructure. Integrated monitoring continuously tracks metrics (such as bandwidth, number of concurrent contacts or instance resources), and new instances can be launched to scale with increased workload as needed.

Use Independently or with AWS Media Services

AWS Elemental MediaPackage can be used as a standalone service or integrated with other AWS Elemental Media Services for live video encoding, VOD processing, ad personalization and monetization, or media-optimized storage. It is also interoperable with other AWS services, such as the Amazon CloudFront CDN.
