Setting up your MediaConvert job for non-linear watermarking

To use this feature, you must first establish a partnership with Nielsen and set up a Nielsen SID/TIC server in the AWS Cloud. Contact Nielsen to download their SID/TIC server software, generate a WRR licence file, and receive installation and setup instructions. For an overview of how the infrastructure works, see How AWS Elemental MediaConvert interacts with your Nielsen SID/TIC server in the AWS Cloud.

To set up Nielsen non-linear watermarking (API, CLI, and SDK)

If you use the API, CLI, or an SDK, specify the relevant settings in your JSON job specification and then submit it programmatically with your job. For more information about submitting your job programmatically, see one of the introductory topics of the AWS Elemental MediaConvert API Reference:

  • Use the MediaConvert console to generate your JSON job specification. We recommend this approach, because the console functions as an interactive validator against the MediaConvert job schema. Follow these steps to generate your JSON job specification using the console:

    1. Follow the previous procedure for the console.

    2. In the Job pane on the left, under Job settings, choose Show job JSON.
