Service plans

The AWS Elemental Support team has a variety of resources to help keep your video workflows running smoothly. We have publicly-available resources to help get you started, as well as paid support plans that provide additional technical support.

Self-service resources and developer support

Product documentation, forums, and training resources can help you identify and develop the right solution for your business. These self-service resources are available to anyone.

Enhanced Service plan

If you need support for AWS Elemental appliances that are part of a media workflow, but are not critical infrastructure components, you can get additional technical support with an Enhanced Service plan. This gives you access to the AWS Elemental Support Center, media-specialized front-line support, and access to a library of support articles.

Premier Service plan

If you use AWS Elemental appliances in workflows for primary contribution to the cloud or primary distribution to other network partners, the Premier Service plan is your best choice. Starting with everything the Enhanced Service plan provides, the Premier Service plan adds best-in-class support for the appliances in your workflows with improved resolution targets and optional add-ons like a media-specialized Technical Account Manager.

Media Event Management

AWS Elemental Media Event Management (MEM) is a support program designed to improve the operational reliability of your business-critical video events. MEM is ideal for supporting live events, onboarding and deploying new workloads, releasing season premieres, and launching 24x7 live linear channels.
