What is AWS MediaLive? How does one set it up? Who is an AWS MediaLive expert?
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Medialive is a live broadcasting transcoding service that streams both live events and 24x7 television channels. It allows the viewer to enjoy content as and when he/she deems fit and on any internet-connected multi-screen device like the mobile phone, tablet, laptop, connected TVs, and set-top boxes. AWS Medialive works in such a way that it converts larger-sized videos into smaller versions by compressing them and distributing them to broadcasters. With AWS Medialive, one can stream both live events and 24x7 television channels using state-of-the-art flexible features like ‘High availability’ and ‘Pay-as-you-go pricing.’
On scrutinizing the Pay-as-you-go-pricing, one can comprehend the efficiency and the cost reliability of Medialive. It is not built on an upfront and beforehand investment model. It is a highly straightforward, flexible, and trustworthy model wherein the user or viewer can only invest when he/she consumes the content displayed using Medialive.
To put it in layman’s terms, AWS Medialive is, in fact, the core of the amazon web services. The medialive gathers content from diverse sources, packaging it, i.e., compressing the video until it achieves a smaller size and then distributes it.
An AWS Medialive expert is one who possesses theoretical as well as practical knowledge and expertise of the Amazon web services Medialive. An expert in this sense studies the content, minimizing it in a few minutes and sending it out for broadcasting. The expert here is not concerned with the video encoding infrastructure but with the live content. As an AWS Medialive expert, one has to also look into providing a highly resilient and reliable model built on two availability zones, such that, if one zone is facing trouble, it will immediately be detected and resolved without disrupting the live channels.
