Best Practices for AWS Elemental MediaConnect

Follow these best practices for optimizing performance when working with AWS Elemental MediaConnect.

For contribution, AWS Elemental MediaConnect is designed to work with mezzanine quality live video with a bitrate of up to 80 megabits per second (Mb/s).

For distribution, AWS Elemental MediaConnect is designed to work with an aggregate output bandwidth of 400 Mb/s. The aggregate output bandwidth is calculated by multiplying the bitrate of the source by the number of outputs. For example, if your flow has a source with a bitrate of 80 Mb/s and 5 outputs, the aggregate output bandwidth is 400 Mb/s. A flow that has a source with a bitrate of 20 Mb/s and sends content to 20 outputs also has an aggregate output bandwidth of 400 Mb/s.
