Captions in Events with Multiple Inputs - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.

Captions in Events with Multiple Inputs

If your event includes multiple inputs, these rules apply to AWS Elemental Live handling of captions:

  • The captions formats in one input can be different from the captions formats in another input. For example, 608 embedded captions might be in one input and teletext might be in another.

  • There is no requirement for all the inputs to have captions that are capable of producing the specified captions in any given output.

    If the captions from an input cannot produce the specified captions in one of the outputs, the captions will be omitted for the course of that input. The event will not fail. When the event switches to a different input, the captions will be included again if the captions from that input can produce the specified captions in that output.
