Benefits

Multi-Protocol and Multi-Format Stream Input

MediaLive supports multiple streaming protocols such as RTP, RTMP, UDP, HLS, and HTTP-MP4. It provides both pull and push input methods. When RTP-MPEGTS is used, MediaLive allows inputting the video stream with multiple audio tracks and transcodes each track separately.

High-Quality and Multi-Format Transcoding

MediaLive supports transcoding at different resolutions (SD, HD, UHD, 2K, 4K, etc.), bitrates, and frame rates. It also provides high-performing top speed codec transcoding. After this feature is enabled, AI algorithms can calculate the optimal dynamic encoding parameters in real time based on business scenarios to implement low-bitrate and high-quality transcoding services.

Digital Rights Management (DRM)

MediaLive offers a specialized digital rights management (DRM) solution to fully protect your video assets. It supports FairPlay and Widevine encryption technologies, meeting the needs for digital copyright protection.

Input Security Groups

MediaLive provides protection policies for input streams at the CIDR security group level. A security group can verify the validity of an input’s IPv4 address, enhancing the security of MediaLive channels.

Flexible Configuration for Independent Channels and Diverse Output Combinations

MediaLive provides services based on channel management, where the same channel can be configured with different inputs and outputs. You can associate an output with existing audio and video transcoding templates, configuring flexible output combinations to implement adaptive bitrate video delivery.

Video Streams Monitoring

MediaLive offers detailed health reports about the running status of each channel and displays alerts, allowing you to check video streams quality in real time.
