AWS is making its HEVC Encoding Device encoding device generally available.

AWS Elemental Link UHD, connects a live ultra-high definition (UHD) video source, like a camera or other video production equipment, to AWS Elemental MediaLive for video processing in the AWS Cloud.

The system is already in use by companies including GLO, Sherpa Digital, MediaKnit, Blaze Streaming Media, Streamly, ioio.tv, and Spiritland Productions.

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, etc.

AWS Elemental Link encodes video feeds at up to 2160p at 60 fps with 10 bit color depth. It can be monitored remotely using the MediaLive console.
