AWS Elemental MediaLive Adds Support for Encrypted HLS and VPC Inputs

Posted on: Mar 5, 2019

You can now configure an AWS Elemental MediaLive channel with encrypted HLS inputs. MediaLive will support the #EXT-X-KEY tag specification. This lets you encrypt the input source for a live channel and have MediaLive decrypt and then encode it into channel outputs.

You can also configure input for a MediaLive channel from your own Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) with support for VPC inputs. When configuring a VPC input, the endpoints for RTP or RTMP push delivery will be created with IP addresses within your VPC.

AWS Elemental MediaLive is a broadcast-grade live video processing service. It lets you create high-quality video for broadcast and streaming delivery to internet-connected devices.

The service functions independently or as part of AWS Elemental Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer you the capabilities needed to transport, create, package, and deliver video.

AWS Elemental MediaLive is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), and South America (São Paulo) regions.
