Changes Enables inserting a UTCTiming XML tag in the output manifest of a DASH endpoint which a media player will use to help with time synchronization.
Changes The release adds daterange as a new ad marker option. This option enables MediaPackage to insert EXT-X-DATERANGE tags in HLS and CMAF manifests. The EXT-X-DATERANGE tag is used to signal ad and program transition events.
Changes You can now restrict direct access to AWS Elemental MediaPackage by securing requests for live content using CDN authorization. With CDN authorization, content requests require a specific HTTP header and authorization code.
Changes New Harvest Job APIs to export segment-accurate content windows from MediaPackage Origin Endpoints to S3. See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/mediapackage/latest/ug/harvest-jobs.html for more info
Changes Added two new origin endpoint fields for configuring which SCTE-35 messages are treated as advertisements.
Changes Adds optional configuration for DASH SegmentTemplateFormat to refer to segments by Number with Duration, rather than Number or Time with SegmentTimeline.
Changes This release adds support for user-defined tagging of MediaPackage resources. Users may now call operations to list, add and remove tags from channels and origin-endpoints. Users can also specify tags to be attached to these resources during their creation. Describe and list operations on these resources will now additionally return any tags associated with them.
Changes Adds optional configuration for DASH to compact the manifest by combining duplicate SegmentTemplate tags. Adds optional configuration for DASH SegmentTemplate format to refer to segments by "Number" (default) or by "Time".
Changes As a part of SPEKE DRM encryption, MediaPackage now supports encrypted content keys. You can enable this enhanced content protection in an OriginEndpoint's encryption settings. When this is enabled, MediaPackage indicates to the key server that it requires an encrypted response. To use this, your DRM key provider must support content key encryption. For details on this feature, see the AWS MediaPackage User Guide at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/mediapackage/latest/ug/what-is.html.
Changes MediaPackage now provides input redundancy. Channels have two ingest endpoints that can receive input from encoders. OriginEndpoints pick one of the inputs receiving content for playback and automatically switch to the other input if the active input stops receiving content. Refer to the User Guide (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/mediapackage/latest/ug/what-is.html) for more details on this feature.
Changes Adds support for DASH OriginEnpoints with multiple media presentation description periods triggered by presence of SCTE-35 ad markers in Channel input streams.
Changes Adds a new OriginEndpoint package type CmafPackage in MediaPackage. Origin endpoints can now be configured to use the Common Media Application Format (CMAF) media streaming format. This version of CmafPackage only supports HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) manifests with fragmented MP4.
Changes AWS Elemental MediaPackage is a just-in-time video packaging and origination service that lets you format highly secure and reliable live outputs for a variety of devices.
