Amazon Interactive Video Service endpoints and quotas - AWS General Reference

Amazon Interactive Video Service endpoints and quotas

The following are the service endpoints and service quotas for this service. To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. In addition to the standard AWS endpoints, some AWS services offer FIPS endpoints in selected Regions. For more information, see AWS service endpoints. Service quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of service resources or operations for your AWS account. For more information, see AWS service quotas.

Service endpoints

Amazon IVS uses an API for setting up and configuring IVS low-latency and real-time streaming applications. Amazon IVS Chat uses the main Chat API for setting up and managing chat rooms, and the Chat Messaging API for sending and receiving chat messages.

Service quotas

For more information, see Low-Latency Streaming Service Quotas in the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming User Guide and Real-Time Streaming Service Quotas in the Amazon IVS Real-Time Streaming User Guide.

If there is a discrepancy, regard the User Guides as definitive.

IVS low-latency streaming quotas

Name Default Adjustable Description
Channels 5,000 Yes Maximum number of channels, per AWS Region.
Concurrent streams 100 Yes Maximum number of channels that can be streamed simultaneously, per AWS Region. If you exceed this threshold, the stream is rejected.
Concurrent views 15,000 Yes Maximum number of views allowed to playback a live channel simultaneously, across all channels, in an AWS Region. (A view is a unique viewing session which is actively downloading or playing video.)
Ingest bitrate (if channel type is BASIC) 1.5 Mbps or 3.5 Mbps No Maximum bits per second that can be streamed to a channel whose type is BASIC.
  • If input video quality is 480p or less, the default quota is 1.5 Mbps.

  • If input video quality is more than 480p but less than 1080p, the default quota is 3.5 Mbps.

Warning: If you exceed this threshold, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. See the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming API Reference for details about channel type.
Ingest bitrate (if channel type is STANDARD) 8.5 Mbps No Maximum bits per second that can be streamed to a channel whose type is STANDARD (the default). Warning: If you exceed this threshold, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. See the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming API Reference for details about channel type.
Ingest bitrate (if channel type is ADVANCED_HD) 8.5 Mbps No Maximum bits per second that can be streamed to a channel whose type is ADVANCED_HD. Warning: If you exceed this threshold, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. See the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming API Reference for details about channel type.
Ingest bitrate (if channel type is ADVANCED_SD) 8.5 Mbps No Maximum bits per second that can be streamed to a channel whose type is ADVANCED_SD. Warning: If you exceed this threshold, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. See the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming API Reference for details about channel type.
Ingest resolution 1080p (2.1M total pixels, 1920 pixels/edge) No Maximum resolution in pixels that can be streamed to a channel (regardless of its type). There are two relevant thresholds: total pixels and pixels per edge. Warning: If you exceed either of these thresholds, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. See the Amazon IVS Low-Latency Streaming API Reference for details about channel type.
