Products and Solutions

With Link UHD, users can seamlessly create high dynamic range (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, fitness classes, education, training, healthcare and beyond.

AWS Elemental Link UHD enables 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. Users 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.

All AWS Elemental Link devices work with AWS Elemental MediaLive, part of AWS Media Services, a suite of cloud-based services that streamline video creation, transport, packaging, storage, monetization and delivery.
