Mexico’s Multimedios selects AWS Elemental, Amazon Web Services

Mexican broadcast network Multimedios Televisión has selected video processing, distribution and storage solutions from AWS Elemental and Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its online video content.

The agreement broadens the broadcaster’s AWS deployment with additional cloud-based video processing and content distribution solutions, comprising an end-to-end workflow to produce and deliver content for Multimedios’ online platforms.

In the Multimedios workflow, AWS Elemental on-premises solutions encode signals from live broadcast playout into RTMP streams for real-time video processing in the cloud. Cloud-based AWS Elemental Live instances perform real-time encoding of three live video streams in adaptive bitrate formats, explained Amazon Web Services in a press release.


AWS Elemental Delta in the cloud provides just-in-time packaging (JITP) for video-on-demand (VOD), time-shift and catch-up viewing services for the Amazon CloudFront content delivery network (CDN) for cloud-based distribution of live streams to Multimedios’ online platforms. Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) provides flexible, on-demand, file-based cloud storage for program highlights and VOD content.
