Setting up your MediaConvert job for Kantar watermarking - MediaConvert

Setting up your MediaConvert job for Kantar watermarking

Once you've established your relationship with Kantar, stored your Kantar credentials in AWS Secrets Manager, and granted permission to AWS Elemental MediaConvert to get these these credentials, set up your MediaConvert job to encode the Kantar watermarks.

Feature restrictions

When you set up your job, note these restrictions on your other settings.

  • You can't use Kantar watermarking and Nielsen watermarking in the same job.

  • Your output audio sample rate must be 48 kHz or greater.

To set up your job to encode Kantar watermarks

  1. Set up your job as usual. For more information, see Setting up a job in AWS Elemental MediaConvert.

  2. On the Create job page, in the Job pane on the left, under Job settings, choose Partner integrations.

  3. Enable Kantar SNAP file watermarking.

  4. Provide values for the Kantar settings.

    1. For Credentials secret name, type the name of the Secrets Manager secret you created to store your Kantar credentials. For example, KantarCreds.

    2. For Kantar license ID, type the license ID that Kantar provides you.

    3. For Channel name, type one of the channel names that are listed in your Kantar audio license.

    4. For Content reference, type the unique identifier that Kantar uses for the asset that you're encoding.

  5. Confirm that the service role you've specified in the job is the same one that you attached permissions to that grant access to your Kantar credentials in the previous topic. If that role Is MediaConvert_Default_Role, you don't need to explicitly choose it, because MediaConvert will use that role by default. To specify the role if it has a different name, do this.

    1. In the Job pane on the left, choose AWS integration.

    2. In the Service access section, find Service role. Confirm that the specified role is the one with the correct permissions.
