AWS Elemental MediaLive adds Dolby E audio decoding
AWS Elemental MediaLive now supports decoding audio from sources with Dolby E compressed tracks. Dolby E supports delivery of eight discrete audio source channels in a PCM (pulse code modulated) stereo pair. With this feature it is possible to deliver content with different language tracks and/or high channel count spatial audio from a single high-quality source. It is said to be particularly useful for international syndication of sports and events where commentary and immersive audio are present.
Dolby E audio decoding is available via the MediaLive Advanced Audio add-on functionality.
AWS Elemental MediaLive is a broadcast-grade live video processing service. It lets users create high-quality live video streams for delivery to broadcast televisions and internet-connected multiscreen devices, such as connected TVs, tablets, smartphones and set-top boxes.
The MediaLive service functions independently or as part of AWS Media Services, a family of services that form the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offer the ability to transport, create, package, monetise and deliver video.
