9:00 am – 10:15 am
Building a Live Video Channel with AWS Elemental MediaLive and AWS Elemental MediaPackage
Learn how to create a streaming video workflow using an encoder in the cloud to produce adaptive bitrate (ABR) content and a packager to deliver the ABR streams to one or more viewers, including mobile devices and desktop browsers. 
10:30 am - 11:45am
Building a Live Video Channel with AWS Elemental MediaLive and AWS Elemental MediaStore
Learn how to create a container in AWS Elemental MediaStore, use that container as an origin for Amazon CloudFront distribution, then configure a channel in AWS Elemental MediaLive using your created AWS Elemental MediaStore Container endpoints as its destination.
12:00 pm – 1:15pm
Video on demand with AWS Elemental MediaConvert
Learn how to use AWS Elemental MediaConvert to develop a video on demand (VOD) workflow that converts video content stored in Amazon S3 into new formats for storage, reuse, and delivery. Convert an input video into different output formats, then use additional functionality to combine multiple video inputs into one output (input stitching), add captions and insert images. 
1:30pm – 2:45pm
Monetizing a Live Stream with AWS Elemental MediaLive, AWS Elemental MediaPackage, and AWS Elemental MediaTailor
Learn how to monetize your workflows thru ad-insertion. Create an AWS Elemental MediaTailor configuration using a mock Ad Decision Server that enables you to implement server-side ad insertion within a previously created live video delivery workflow. 
3:00pm – 4:15 pm
Monitoring a Live Channel with Amazon CloudWatch
Learn how to monitor the status and health of video workflows. Create notifications based on AWS Elemental MediaLive Alerts and channel status changes. Create metrics to measure inputs and outputs in AWS Elemental MediaLive and AWS Elemental MediaPackage. Build a dashboard to view those metrics and manipulate the workflow and observe the results in Amazon CloudWatch.
