Input Option 1. Follow the Data in the Input - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.17 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.

Input Option 1. Follow the Data in the Input

By default, AWS Elemental Live follows the color space data that is in the input and retains it for inclusion in the output. In this case, if the color space changes during ingestion (for example, from SDR 601 to SDR 709), then AWS Elemental Live detects the change.

This handling is appropriate if the color space data is always present in the input and is always accurate. Historically, SDR 601 frequently was not indicated in the input: the input was color and there was no other choice. Even with SDR 709 input, the color space may not be explicitly indicated. However, with HDR content and with 4K content, the color space is nearly always specified in the content.

It is also appropriate if you know that the color space data is completely inaccurate and you simply want to strip it out of the output: you set to Follow when setting up the input, and then you will explicitly remove it when setting up the output.

In the input, set up the color space:
