Planning the channel in the workflow - MediaLive

Planning the channel in the workflow

You should plan the AWS Elemental MediaLive channel as the second stage of planning a transcoding workflow. You should have already performed the first stage of setting up the upstream and downstream systems, as described in Preparing the upstream and downstream systems in a workflow.

The channel provides the ability to configure for different characteristics of the outputs, and for including a wide array of video features. But before you plan these details, you should plan the basic features for the channel.


On the output side, we refer to each video or audio or caption stream, track, or program as an encode.
