Live Sport Broadcast using AWS Elemental Service

World Cup Time finally over! I really enjoyed this World Cup!. I watched official live stream in my Windows Laptop, sometime on my another mobile phone devices Android or an IOS device. I wonder. Is there any service that I can use for live broadcasting with AWS?
Yes it is! AWS provided us with AWS Elemental service.

This lab i demonstrate using above topology diagram.
AWS Elemental MediaLive will encodes video in real time, compressing live broadcast sources into streams for delivery to broadcast TV , mobile devices (Android or IOS ) or another internet connected devices .
AWS Elemental MediaPackage prepares, distributes our live / on demand video content to a broad range of connected devices ( Windows, Android, IOS, etc ). The service can take a single video input from an encoder such as AWS Elemental MediaLive.
Amazon CloudFront will deliver our content all around the world.
Live streaming using Real time Messaging Protocol, and will use AWS MediaLive and AWS Elemental MediaPackage
