Fast and easy setup
AWS Elemental Link is shipped fully configured for your AWS Account. Simply connect the device to power, an IP network, and a video source (3G-SDI or HDMI). Once connected, Link automatically starts sending thumbnail images and is available as a source for MediaLive in the AWS Management Console, ready for live streaming.
Manage and monitor devices remotely
With AWS Elemental Link, you control the entire live event workflow using the AWS Management Console. Because you can manage and monitor multiple devices anywhere in the world from a central point of control, you don’t need to send technical operators to event sites in order to set up and configure your live streams.
At a price of $995 USD per device (excluding customs clearance, duty, tax, and shipping), Link provides a broadcast-grade way to connect your on-premises live video source to MediaLive at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches. Because setup is easy and management of devices is handled remotely, Link is efficient to own and operate.
Small and portable
Link is a small, portable device with minimal power and cooling requirements. Weighing less than 1 lb. (450 g), Link can travel wherever you need to connect live video to the cloud. Link is silent, and fanless operation and minimal heat generation make the device practical to use in low-noise environments like studios or conference rooms.

How do I set up AWS Elemental Link on-premises?
Link takes a single video input as a source and sends a single video output up to 1080p 60fps to AWS Elemental MediaLive. Set up requires three connections to begin streaming video to MediaLive: a power source, an IP network, and a 3G-SDI or an HDMI video source. Link also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) so you can use as few as two cables. On most networks (ones that use DHCP), no further configuration is needed. Link comes preconfigured for your AWS Account; once connected, it automatically begins transferring video thumbnails, can be stopped and started, and is available to use in a MediaLive Channel. Link can go from out-of-the-box to live streaming in less than one minute.

Can I install Link in a rack-mount configuration?
Link fits into facilities of practically any size and can be installed in any standard equipment rack. The device fits three across on a standard 19 in. rack shelf. Weighing less than one lb (450 g) and measuring just 32 cu. in. (524 cu. cm) in volume, the Link device is easy to transport and takes up just a fraction of the space and power of a standard 1U server, making it ideal for flypacks and other types of remote production installations.
