Azure Media Services provides a platform with which you can broadcast live events. You can use our APIs to ingest, transcode, and dynamically package and encrypt your live video feeds for delivery via industry-standard protocols like HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and MPEG-DASH.
On November 23 2016, we will announce a new pricing model for on-demand encoding of media with Azure Media Services.
We are now conducting trials of HEVC encoding at 4K/Ultra HD resolutions with our customers. Our encoding solution includes support for HDR 10 Media Profile. If you are interested in participating in these trials, please contact us.
We are pleased to announce support for Apple ProRes videos in Azure Media Services.
Perform editing operations on your live stream such as generating frame-accurate highlights, archiving to a MP4 file or using Media Encoder Standard.
Premium encoding is now generally available in Azure Media Services. Its capabilities such as automated decision-making logic can adapt to a variety of input and output file formats.

In this blog, I will provide an overview of this Live Encoding feature, which adds the following capabilities to Azure Media Services.
