How it works
Simple deployment and management
AWS Elemental MediaLive automates the provisioning and management of all the infrastructure used for video encoding, letting you deploy a simple live channel in minutes. The service transparently provisions resources and manages all the scaling, failover, monitoring, and reporting needed to power a live video stream. This lets you focus on your live content, not your encoding infrastructure. You can also use AWS Elemental Link, an on-premises device that makes it easy to connect your live video source to MediaLive.
AWS Elemental MediaLive makes it easy for anyone to produce broadcast-quality live streaming video. The service includes support for advanced capabilities such as statistical multiplexing, ad marker support, audio features including audio normalization and Dolby audio, and multiple caption standards. MediaLive works natively with AWS Elemental MediaConnect, providing secure and reliable transport of video to use as inputs to live channels.
Increased efficiency and reduced cost
“We've already seen pretty impressive results from what we have moved to the AWS environment and we're really enjoying all the benefits like scalability, redundancy, and performance that we get from being on the AWS platform.”
Andrew Blakey, Development Manager, TVNZ
TVNZ is New Zealand’s leading free-to-air TV provider, bringing news and entertainment coverage to more than two million New Zealanders each day.
"FOX SPORTS is at the vanguard of sports broadcast innovation. To deliver live sport of this volume to our subscribers requires scale. We have implemented the AWS Cloud to leverage the end-to-end live event and content monetization workflows only available in the cloud through AWS Elemental Media Services."
