Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) basic channel has added support for HD (720p) and Full HD (1080p) quality streams, in addition to SD (480p).
The expanded functionality is designed to enable streamers and viewers globally to enjoy higher video quality when using a basic channel, said Amazon.
A basic channel will deliver only the original input video quality to viewers, whereas a standard channel provides “multiple qualities of output”, said the company, allowing better playback quality across a range of devices and network conditions.
Amazon IVS is a managed live streaming solution designed to be quick and easy to set up, and ideal for creating interactive video experiences.
User can send live streams to Amazon IVS using broadcast SDKs or standard streaming software such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), enabling them to make low-latency live video available to any viewer around the world.
Video ingest and delivery are available around the world over a managed network of infrastructure optimised for live video, added Amazon.
