Amazon Elastic Transcoder is now available in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) region.

Amazon Elastic Transcoder lets you convert source media files into formats that will playback on devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs. It manages all aspects of the media transcoding process for you transparently and automatically. There’s no need to administer software, scale hardware, tune performance, or otherwise manage transcoding infrastructure. You simply create a transcoding “job” specifying the location of your source media file and how you want it transcoded. Amazon Elastic Transcoder also provides transcoding presets for popular output formats, which means that you don’t need to guess about which settings work best on particular devices. All these features are available via service API, AWS SDKs and the AWS Management Console.

In addition to the Asia Pacific (Sydney) region, Amazon Elastic Transcoder is currently available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (Northern California), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions.
