Step 3: Design the output groups - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Step 3: Design the output groups

In the first step of planning the channel, you identified the video, audio, and captions encodes to include in each output group.

You must now organize these video, audio, and captions encodes into outputs in each output group. You must organize these encodes to follow the rules that each type of output group dictates.

Result of this procedure

After you have performed this procedure, you will have designs for the following:

  • The organization of the outputs in each output group.

  • The organization of the video, audio, and captions encodes in each output.

You have now planned the output side of the channel.

AWS Elemental MediaLive compared to AWS Elemental Live

If you are familiar with AWS Elemental Live, note that AWS Elemental Live refers to output streams, while MediaLive refers to encodes. Apart from that, the concepts are the same: MediaLive channels combine video, audio, and captions encodes into outputs, and outputs are placed in output groups.
