AWS Elemental Live encodes live video content for a single channel or thousands of channels. As video providers scale out their video encoding appliance deployments, administering and monitoring encoding infrastructure can present significant challenges, particularly if encoders are managed individually. By providing easy-to-use, centralized management of AWS Elemental Live encoding nodes, AWS Elemental Conductor is designed to simplify management and monitoring of live video encoding resources at scale.
AWS Elemental Conductor is an on-premises management system for AWS Elemental Live encoder nodes. It allows you to easily and efficiently manage individual encoders or large encoder clusters. AWS Elemental Conductor offers high availability, secure administration, and comprehensive monitoring of video processing and delivery through an easy-to-use web interface. It takes the complexity out of scaling video channels and workflows, letting you manage hundreds of live channels across encoders while ensuring configurations are synchronized. Available on-premises as appliances or as AWS-licensed software on your infrastructure, AWS Elemental Conductor lets you deploy and manage video infrastructure wherever you need it.
