AWS Elemental MediaConvert has added several new features to the AWS Management Console to make the service easier to use. You can now export and import JSON files for your job settings, output presets, and job templates. This makes it simpler to edit and share jobs, presets, and templates, even between AWS accounts. You can also now update and duplicate job templates and presets, in addition to jobs. These features make it easy to create new presets and templates from existing ones, and to experiment and iterate to find the settings that produce the best video for your viewers. You can also now customize the fields that are displayed within the jobs list to build the view that works best for your use case. And finally, the tool tips in MediaConvert have been streamlined to help you quickly understand the function of each setting in the Console.
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.
