  • Building a Live Video Channel with MediaLive, MediaStore and CloudFront

    In live streaming events, the latency or time delay between the live action and what is seen on one’s device can be problematic. AWS Elemental MediaStore can help mitigate that problem.

    Building a Live Video Channel with MediaLive, MediaPackage and CloudFront

    Live streaming is growing rapidly.  More live streaming content is being made available by studios, as well as by users sharing on social networks.  And, there are more devices capable of streaming live video streaming being deployed to the market.

    Monitoring a Live Streaming Workflow with Amazon CloudWatch

    An important part of any video workflow is being able to monitor the status and health of the software services and their tasks in order to detect and correct problems before they jeopardize the workflow. This is especially true when streaming live video where there are no “do-overs” and the cost of an issue or outage can be huge in terms of revenue, fines or damage to reputation.
