Proposed Solution and Architecture

To deliver high-quality live concerts to fans, Veeps used the following AWS Elemental services:

Mobile Application Development
AWS CloudFront

CloudFront is a global content delivery network (CDN) that accelerates online video streaming. It securely caches and delivers video content from AWS Elemental to end users, reducing latency and ensuring a smooth viewing experience. It scales dynamically and integrates seamlessly with other AWS services for optimized video delivery.

Offline Capabilities

This service is used to transmit live streams from the venue to the cloud for further processing. This allows for the buffering of live feeds and enables support for protocols such as SRT. Also, its use allows for N+1 transcoders for greater redundancy. This ultimately provides a secure, reliable, and low-latency connection between the concert venue and the cloud, ensuring that viewers receive a high-quality and uninterrupted stream.

UI/UX Overhaul

This service is used to transcode the live streams received from MediaLive. It transcodes the streams into multiple output formats, which can be delivered to different devices and platforms. In addition, harvest jobs are enabled to ingest into Veep’s Video on Demand (VOD) service.

UI/UX Overhaul

This service is used to package and deliver live streams to viewers. It provides a single endpoint for streaming the concert, which can be easily integrated into Veeps' platform.

With these services, Veeps is able to deliver high-quality live concerts to fans, with low latency and high reliability. The use of CloudFront, MediaLive and MediaConnect ensures that the live streams are transmitted securely and reliably, while MediaConvert and MediaPackage provide the flexibility and scalability needed to deliver the streams to viewers on different devices and platforms.

Lessons Learned

The use of AWS Elemental services for live concert streaming has proven to be a successful solution for Veeps and their clients. The services provide a scalable, low latency, and high-quality solution, making it possible to deliver live concerts to viewers worldwide. The solution has helped to maintain the revenue generated by live concerts and has provided a much-needed lifeline for the music industry during the pandemic.
