Setting Up Profiles - AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3

This is version 3.18 of the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 Documentation.

Setting Up Profiles

For a show-and-tell of the Profiles screen, see Profiles Screen.

A profile is a pre-defined collection of values for most of the data in a channel or event. When you create a channel or event, you associate it with a profile in order to set up all that data.

This section describes how to create and manage profiles using AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 and provides comparative information on the differences between profiles in Conductor and AWS Elemental Live.

For detailed information about setting the parameters in a profile and about inputs, processors, output groups, outputs, and streams, see the online documentation in AWS Elemental Live (Support > Parameters).

AWS Elemental Live AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3
An AWS Elemental Live profile can be used only with an event created in AWS Elemental Live. It cannot be used by an AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 channel. AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 profile can be used only with a channel created in Conductor. It cannot be used by an AWS Elemental Live event.

After an event is created, it is not linked to the profile.

Once the event is created, the data from the “source” profile exists in the event, but no link exists for that profile.

You cannot query the event to find out which profile was originally used.

After a channel is created, it is linked to its profile.

A link exists between a channel and the profile used.

You can view the channels-profile association on the Channels screen.

You can change a profile.

You cannot change a profile.

Instead, you must create a new profile with a new name. You can also duplicate an existing profile and then change it.

No idea exists of two events “sharing” the same profile.

If event_A was created using profile_X and event_B was created using profile_X, they do not automatically therefore have all the same “profile values.” (For example, if event_B was created after profile_X was modified, A and B have different values.)

Two channels do share a profile.

If channel_A was created using profile_X and channel_B was created using profile_X, then they all have the same “profile values.”
