Video transport network solution provider LTN and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental MediaConnect have forged a partnership that will enable customers to distribute content to hundreds of locations via LTN’s highly robust, low-latency multicast IP network and AWS.
The partnership enables users to take advantage of distribution feeds going back and forth from AWS Elemental MediaConnect to the LTN Network while using the LTN multicast network and backbone infrastructure.
The interoperability will allow users to easily and quickly originate and send live video between AWS Elemental MediaConnect and LTN for both full-time and occasional-use feeds, and to seamlessly manage and schedule these feeds through the LTN Portal.
“Cloud playout and workflow empower customers to move high-quality live video content around the world with high speed and reliability,” Malik Khan, LTN’s Global Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, said. “This expanded collaboration with AWS offers both of our customers high reliability, low latency and a seamless integration with on-ramps and off-ramps to both networks.”
This collaboration brings the best live video experience to customers with the new LTN-AWS Elemental MediaConnect workflow management system and AWS Entitlements integration. It provides the full capability to start, configure, process and monitor flows between the two, without the need to alter existing workflows or handle network configurations between LTN and AWS.
Customers can book an AWS Elemental MediaConnect source (transmitter) or destination (receiver) on a specific AWS region via the LTN Portal. This enhancement enables customers to easily transport live video into, between and out of the AWS.
It also enables customers to utilise AWS Elemental MediaConnect to transport live video streams to a large number of destinations, via the LTN Network.
