AWS Launches AWS Elemental Link UHD

The HEVC encoding device is for connecting a live UHD video source, like a camera or other video production equipment, to AWS Elemental MediaLive for video processing in the AWS Cloud.

With Link UHD, users can create HDR outputs, including HDR 10 and HLG, in MediaLive channels to ensure a high-quality picture for a range of streaming applications - from enterprise events and live sports to music.

AWS Elemental Link UHD “boasts high performance HEVC encoding” for UHD (up to 2160p at 60 fps with 10 bit color depth) video feeds, in addition to the features included in the AWS Elemental Link HD encoder.

“Whereas other video contribution solutions require on-location support to install, manage, and troubleshoot, Link UHD and Link HD devices ship fully configured to the user’s AWS account, are fast and simple to set up, and can be controlled and monitored remotely using the MediaLive console,” says AWS.

“Users simply connect the device to power, an IP network, and an SDI or HDMI video source, and the video is automatically accessible in the MediaLive console in less than a minute. Link UHD and Link HD are lightweight, quiet, require less cooling and perform more reliably over congested networks than comparable hardware solutions.”
