Automatic input failover and input switching - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Automatic input failover and input switching

When you implement automatic input failover, you can still implement input switching.

With automatic input failover, your deployment contains an input failover pair that uses up your quota of live inputs for the channel. You can't attach more live inputs to the channel.

Therefore, in terms of changing content in the channel, you can switch between any of the file inputs and the single live input pair. There are also special cases for switching between the primary and secondary input.

Note

The information in this section assumes that you are familiar with the general steps for creating input switches, as described in Creating Actions in the Schedule (Console).
