AWS Elemental Makes Additions to MediaLive Service With I-Frame-Only HLS Manifests, JPEG Outputs
AWS Elemental MediaLive now offers the option to create HLS manifests that only include I-frames. I-frames, or intra-coded frames, are single frames of video that can be displayed without referencing any other frame. Manifests built with only I-frames make it easier to enable content scrubbing with video preview on video players.
MediaLive has also added JPEG outputs to a live channel. These will archive a series of JPEG images of the channel output to an S3 bucket over time and can be also be used for content scrubbing, or thumbnails.
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.
