AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a transport service for live video.

The API integration features VCAS Ultra deployed in the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform built on AWS, eliminating the need to configure and manage physical servers to operate VCAS Ultra services.

Verimatrix said that in addition to the standalone importance of secure cloud-based live video distribution via AWS Elemental MediaConnect, the integration has the potential to expand deployment models and the value of connected content distribution workflows that streamline end-to-end delivery and automate video analytics reporting between content providers and video service operators.

“VCAS Ultra is a proven and widely adopted security solution for premium video services, and our API integration with AWS Elemental MediaConnect offers value-added flexibility and options for live video distribution. The ability to secure, authenticate, and enforce distribution rights of live broadcast content in an automatic fashion is another example of a leading-edge cloud workflow that offers a compelling alternative to satellite or fiber distribution” said Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix.
