In a video processing workflow, a packaging and origination solution customizes live video streams or VOD assets for delivery in a format compatible with the viewer’s device. It takes compressed video content from an encoder and packages it from a single format into multiple delivery formats for distribution across IP networks while applying digital rights management (DRM) standards. However, this process can add significant cost and complexity to a streaming video workflow. By deploying just-in-time video packaging downstream of a video encoder, content providers can reduce storage and distribution costs while simplifying content delivery for live or on-demand video.
When video packaging needs to be done on-premises, such as when working with local encoders or storage, AWS Elemental Delta reliably packages and protects your video for delivery to internet-connected devices on a just-in-time basis, reducing the need for costly storage of encoded video assets. It transforms a broad range of video inputs into outputs formatted for live or on-demand viewing on connected TVs, mobile phones, computers, tablets, and game consoles. As a single repository for your library of video-on-demand (VOD) assets, AWS Elemental Delta uses fewer resources by supporting multiple versions of the same asset in different formats.
Popular time-shifted TV services, such as start-over, catch-up, and pause TV, are simple to implement with AWS Elemental Delta. It can also protect your content using built-in encryption and decryption and support for a broad range of DRM solutions. You can deploy AWS Elemental Delta on-premises as appliances or as AWS-licensed software on your infrastructure.
