Gets the details for the input device

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--input-device-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--input-device-id (string) The unique ID of this input device. For example, hd-123456789abcdef.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

ActiveInput -> (string)

If you specified Auto as the configured input, specifies which of the sources is currently active (SDI or HDMI).

Framerate -> (double)

The frame rate of the video source.

Height -> (integer)

The height of the video source, in pixels.

MaxBitrate -> (integer)

The current maximum bitrate for ingesting this source, in bits per second. You can specify this maximum.

ScanType -> (string)

The scan type of the video source.

Width -> (integer)

The width of the video source, in pixels.

Id -> (string)

The unique ID of the input device.
