AWS Elemental MediaTailor now supports fast schedule updates in Channel Assembly
You can now make changes to an AWS Elemental MediaTailor Channel closer to the live edge. When a channel is running and content is playing, it is often necessary to amend the schedule quickly in reaction to unplanned or non-determined events. For example, cutting from a live source to a VOD source after a live event has concluded or adjusting what source plays for an upcoming program a few minutes before it begins. From today, you can make certain program updates in a channel’s schedule to take effect 60 seconds or more in the future.
