M2A CONNECT will scale infrastructure up and down based on active Events, which may be scheduled or created immediately in the console. This schedule of content is also used in order to control which time slots subscribers can access.
When no content is live or being distributed, M2A CONNECT will keep running costs to a minimum by stopping running AWS resources.
The M2A CONNECT schedule is made up of Events, with each Event targeting one or more Sources. Each event has a start and end time which identifies the content’s time slot. It is perfectly acceptable for multiple events to overlap.
Remember: An Event is active between its start and end time. When any Events are active for a Source, the Source will also be activated and media will be able to flow. Similarly, when any Event which matches the subscription’s selector is active, the subscriber will be able to receive content from the sources associated with the event.
