AWS Elemental MediaConnect Gateway explained (1:43)
Introduction to AWS Elemental MediaConnect Gateway
AWS Elemental MediaConnect Gateway is a cloud-connected software application for transmitting multicast live streams using AWS, sending video to and from your customer-managed multicast infrastructure. MediaConnect Gateway sends a multicast feed from your network operations center as unicast, transporting the video to AWS Elemental MediaConnect. MediaConnect Gateway simplifies building live video workflows in hybrid environments by providing support, monitoring, and control – all in one service.
