AWS Elemental MediaConvert has expanded support for audio formats and improved overall transcode performance. With new audio-only outputs for HLS, AAC with MP4, and WAV with PCM, you have more options for delivering audio-only content to users for music, podcasting, radio, audio books, and more. In addition, MediaConvert has significantly improved performance for non-accelerated jobs, reducing the time required for creating VOD assets so you can make your media available to end users even faster and start monetizing new content sooner.

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.
