AWS Elemental Conductor is a video network management system for file-based and live video delivery applications. The software-based solution offers high availability, secure administration and comprehensive monitoring of video encoding and delivery tasks through an easy-to-use web-based user interface. Customer-defined 1+1, N+M or N+1 redundancy provides continuous signal flow and uninterrupted service delivery. Comprehensive alerting and reporting capabilities simplify status monitoring. Conductor delivers operational efficiencies by reducing the complexity of cluster management while enabling scalability and stability of multi-instance deployments on-premises or in the cloud.

Benefits

Simplified System Management Lowers Operating Expense

Manage multiple AWS Elemental instances from a single graphical or machine-to-machine interface. An intuitive UI allows command and control of cluster functionality from on-site or remote locations to significantly reduce equipment costs and management overhead.

High Availability for Uninterrupted Video Service

Seamlessly solve anomalies in a multi-system cluster with customer-defined 1+1, N+M and N+1 redundancy. AWS Elemental Conductor management software performs node-based failover and recovery of channels around-the-clock, guaranteeing content delivery to consumers.

Reduced Configuration Complexity and Administration

REST / XML APIs and a Linux-based operating system allows for easy integration into existing operations. Predictable failover enables operators to prioritize critical channels and gain operational efficiencies.

AWS Elemental Presents: STN Customer Snapshot

Satellite Telecommunications Network (STN) is a global telecommunications hub, or teleport, based near Ljubljana, Slovenia. In this customer snapshot, Anver Anderson, General Manager, and Jurij Blažin, Technical Director, describe how STN is using AWS Elemental video processing solutions to power the unified headend delivery of broadcast and over-the-top (OTT) TV content in high-efficiency video coding.

Features

Live Task Management

Start, stop and edit channels with confidence. Task-based controls provide a streamlined approach for simultaneously controlling multiple channels.

Ease of Maintenance

Reduce operational maintenance windows. Benefit from software enhancements and feature additions with centralized version control. Upgrade individual instances to verify software enhancements and feature additions before updating an entire cluster.

Flexible Redundancy

Intuitively configure 1+1, N+M and N+1 redundancy groups with manual or automatic redundancy switching and customer-defined channel failover conditions.

Channel Monitoring

Visually preview activity on each encoder via video thumbnails. Alert and message aggregation with advanced filtering simplifies fault management.

Secure Administration

Authenticated user access for system control and monitoring with configurable user levels. Audit logs are maintained for user actions and modifications, providing cluster management oversight.

System Monitoring

Monitor all video processing instances simultaneously from any location on the network. Verify system health for individual encoding units and transcoding tasks in operation.
