AWS Elemental MediaConvert now supports video rotation and ad marker insertion.

Using MediaConvert, you can rotate video either automatically, based on input metadata, or manually, by specifying a rotation value. This enables you to encode video created on devices such as mobile phones by rotating it to the orientation that you require.

In addition, you can specify ad insertion points in your outputs, even if your input video doesn’t contain SCTE-35 markers. You do this by adding Event Signaling and Management (ESAM) XML documents to your MediaConvert job settings. This enables you to better monetize VOD assets by inserting advertisements or to enforce content restrictions with blackouts.

AWS Elemental MediaConvert allows video providers with any size content library to easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. The service functions independently or as part of AWS Elemental Media Services, a family of services that forms the foundation of cloud-based workflows and offers the capabilities needed to transport, create, package, and deliver video.

AWS Elemental MediaConvert is available in the US East (Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (Northern California), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), South America (São Paulo), and GovCloud (US-West) regions.
