Reliably transport video
Securely share live video streams
Easily manage high-value live broadcasts
Connect remote production applications in the cloud
MediaConnect supports remote production architectures by using AWS CDI flows to connect components such as production switchers, graphics engines, multiviewers, and playout servers running on different Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. MediaConnect bridges these components together without sacrificing latency or video quality. MediaConnect also supports JPEG XS so you can connect your on-premises cameras and monitor walls to your Amazon EC2 remote production architecture.
Build for high availability
MediaConnect provides resilience at the signal level through technologies such as automatic repeat request (ARQ) and at the flow level by employing SMPTE 2022-7 and hot/hot failover. MediaConnect also supports placement at the Availability Zone (AZ) level so it’s easy to build live video workflows without any single points of failure.
Lower your costs by 30 percent or more
MediaConnect uses your IP infrastructure or AWS Direct Connect to enable cost-effective, high-quality live video transport between on-premises and the AWS Cloud. Instead of long-term commitments to satellite transponders and fixed fiber networks, MediaConnect provides a pay-as-you-go transport alternative, saving you 30% or more compared to a typical satellite primary distribution use case with 70 destinations.
