I'm brand new to Wowza and have successfully set up a simple live HLS stream from FMLE to an AWS EC2 m1.small instance with CloudFront using the sample AWS CloudFormation docs <http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/live-streaming-wowza.html>
We have a potential live event job that I'm not sure how to configure because I'm new to Wowza and the event is large--3,000 viewers watching via iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablet and desktop for ~1 hour.
Let's say we output a 500kbps H.264 AAC stream from FMLE at this live event. What would be required to deliver this to 3,000 viewers on the variety of devices above?
For those of you that regularly do large events with Wowza and AWS/EC2/CloudFront, how would you approach this?
Is it possible to use just a single HLS output from Wowza->CloudFront for all viewing devices?
Does CloudFront reduce the server requirements?
I looked through the tutorials but didn't see anything that I felt answered my questions.
Thanks for any help.
