AWS Elemental MediaConvert has added the ability to prioritize transcoding jobs. You can now specify a priority setting when submitting jobs in either on-demand or reserved queues. With this feature, you have more control over the order in which jobs are processed, so that jobs that require shorter turnaround times can be added to the queue with a higher priority and started before other jobs with a lower priority. To learn more, please see the documentation.

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