MediaPackage is a just-in-time video packaging and origination service that runs in the AWS Cloud.

MediaPackage provides:

  • Delivery of highly secure, scalable, and reliable video streams to a wide variety of playback devices and content delivery networks (CDNs).
  • Broadcast-grade viewing experience for viewers, while allowing the flexibility to control and protect content.
  • Built-in resiliency and scalability that provides the right amount of resources at the right time, with no manual intervention required.

A harvest job represents a request to extract a live-to-VOD (video on demand) asset from an endpoint for a specific timeframe in the past. AWS Elemental MediaPackage uses information from the harvest job to:

  • Determine the start and end times of the asset.
  • Determine where to store the asset after the harvest job is complete.

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
