Channel - Amazon IVS

Channel

Object specifying a channel.

Contents

arn

Channel ARN.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: ^arn:aws:[is]vs:[a-z0-9-]+:[0-9]+:channel/[a-zA-Z0-9-]+$

Required: No

authorized

Whether the channel is private (enabled for playback authorization). Default: false.

Type: Boolean

Required: No

ingestEndpoint

Channel ingest endpoint, part of the definition of an ingest server, used when you set up streaming software.

Type: String

Required: No

latencyMode

Channel latency mode. Use NORMAL to broadcast and deliver live video up to Full HD. Use LOW for near-real-time interaction with viewers. Default: LOW. (Note: In the Amazon IVS console, LOW and NORMAL correspond to Ultra-low and Standard, respectively.)

Type: String

Valid Values: NORMAL | LOW

Required: No

name

Channel name.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: ^[a-zA-Z0-9-_]*$

Required: No

playbackUrl

Channel playback URL.

Type: String

Required: No

recordingConfigurationArn

Recording-configuration ARN. A value other than an empty string indicates that recording is enabled. Default: "" (empty string, recording is disabled).

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: ^$|^arn:aws:ivs:[a-z0-9-]+:[0-9]+:recording-configuration/[a-zA-Z0-9-]+$

Required: No

tags

Array of 1-50 maps, each of the form string:string (key:value). See Tagging AWS Resources for more information, including restrictions that apply to tags and "Tag naming limits and requirements"; Amazon IVS has no service-specific constraints beyond what is documented there.

Type: String to string map

Map Entries: Minimum number of 0 items. Maximum number of 50 items.

Key Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 128.

Value Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 256.

Required: No

type

Channel type, which determines the allowable resolution and bitrate. If you exceed the allowable resolution or bitrate, the stream probably will disconnect immediately. Default: STANDARD. Valid values:

  • STANDARD: Video is transcoded: multiple qualities are generated from the original input, to automatically give viewers the best experience for their devices and network conditions. Transcoding allows higher playback quality across a range of download speeds. Resolution can be up to 1080p and bitrate can be up to 8.5 Mbps. Audio is transcoded only for renditions 360p and below; above that, audio is passed through. This is the default.

  • BASIC: Video is transmuxed: Amazon IVS delivers the original input to viewers. The viewer’s video-quality choice is limited to the original input. Resolution can be up to 1080p and bitrate can be up to 1.5 Mbps for 480p and up to 3.5 Mbps for resolutions between 480p and 1080p.

Type: String

Valid Values: BASIC | STANDARD

Required: No
