Setting up AWS Elemental MediaConnect

This includes creating an IAM role for yourself. If you want to use encryption to protect your content, you also must store your encryption keys in AWS Secrets Manager, and then give MediaConnect permission to obtain the keys from your Secrets Manager account.
