Color space versus video resolution - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Color space versus video resolution

Color space refers to the range of color. MediaLive supports the following color spaces:

  • SDR (standard dynamic range)

  • HDR (high dynamic range) color spaces

Resolution refers to the video pixel count. MediaLive supports the following resolutions:

  • SD (standard definition).

  • HD (high definition).

  • UHD (ultra-high definition). For UHD, MediaLive resolutions up to 4K.

The following combinations of color space and resolution are typically used:

  • SDR color space can be associated with SD, HD, and UHD video.

  • HDR color space can be associated with HD or UHD video.

HDR isn't typically associated with SD content, but MediaLive does support this combination.
