Creating a Profile from Scratch

To create a profile from scratch

  1. Display the Profiles screen.


    We recommend you open the Profiles screen in a separate web tab or window. The Profiles screen contains a lot of information that you might want to complete over time. If you have the Profiles screen open in a different tab or window, you can navigate to other places on the web interface without losing your changes.

  2. On the Profiles tab, choose Add Profile. A blank New Profile screen loads.

  3. Complete the profile.For detailed information on this page, see the online documentation in AWS Elemental Live (Support > Parameters).

    You can accept all the defaults, but you must at least complete the following:

    • Name: Enter a profile name.

    • Restart on Failure: Check to restart the channel automatically if it fails (recommended).

    • Add Input: Provide information for at least one video input: Specify the type (Network Input, File Input, HLS Network Input, HLS File Input, SDI Direct Input, or SDI Router Input) and the source location.

      If you do not want to specify the input source in the profile, you can specify a “channel parameter” as a placeholder that you replace with real information when you create the channel. See Creating a Profile with Channel Parameters.

    • Output Group: Add one output group. The default is Archive, where you must at least complete the Destination field. If you do not want Archive, create a different output group and then remember to delete the Archive.

    • Output and Stream: Add one output and one stream. Each output must use one stream. In the output area, you typically must specify the container type and a name modifier.

  4. Choose Create to save the profile. The profile is validated and errors appear. Fix the errors and choose Create again. More errors may appear; continue until no errors appear. The profile is created and displays in the list on the Profiles screen.
