Types of actions in the schedule

The schedule is a list of actions that a channel performs as it is running. You can use actions to do the following:

  • Switch the input that the running channel is ingesting.

  • Prepare an input that is associated with an immediate input switch, in order to reduce the delay that occurs when MediaLive performs the switch.

  • 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.
