Step 7: Arrange for delivery to downstream systems - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Step 7: Arrange for delivery to downstream systems

As the final step in preparing the downstream and upstream systems in your workflow, you must perform this step on each downstream system:

  • You and the operator at the downstream system must agree on some portions of the path from AWS Elemental MediaLive to the downstream system.

  • You must arrange for the operator at the downstream system to perform some setup so that MediaLive can successfully send outputs to these systems.

The setup is different for each type of output group and downstream system.

The output from MediaLive is considered input to this downstream system. You and the operator of the downstream system must agree about the input locations on the downstream system now, because when you create the MediaLive channel you need those URL locations.

Note that this guide describes how to set up an origin server. It does not describe how to set up the CDN that is downstream of the origin server. For information about that setup, see the documentation for the chosen origin server.
