Working with the AWS Elemental MediaLive Schedule

In AWS Elemental MediaLive, you can manipulate the processing of a channel while it is running. You perform this manipulation by inserting actions into the schedule that is associated with the channel.

Supported Actions

You can use actions to do the following:

  • Switch the input that the running channel is ingesting.

  • Insert a static image overlay (an image layered over the underlying video) into the running channel.

  • Insert SCTE-35 messages into the running channel.

  • Insert ID3 metadata into the running channel.

  • Insert ID3 segment tags into the running channel.

  • Pause one or both of the pipelines in the channel.

  • Unpause one or both of the pipelines in the channel.

For more information, see Types of Actions in the Schedule.

Supported Action Timings

You can set up an action to occur at a specific (fixed) time, as soon as possible (immediate), or to follow when the currently running input is finished.

For information on the timings applicable to each action, see Types of Timing for Actions.
