AWS Elemental MediaConvert now offers support for Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) video encoding for better color, contrast, and brightness on consumer display devices and support for Dolby Atmos audio encoding for immersive surround sound. MediaConvert used in combination with these technologies from Dolby Laboratories give video providers the ability to create premium experiences for consumers.

Using MediaConvert with Dolby Vision HDR enables a wider color gamut and greater luminosity range for video outputs, transforming the viewing experience. The HDR processing and metadata generation into profile 5 Dolby Vision is handled in MediaConvert and does not require any additional processing. Support for Dolby Vision is available for an add-on cost in the MediaConvert on-demand, professional pricing tier. Learn more about Dolby Vision encoding in MediaConvert.

In addition, MediaConvert supports Dolby Atmos audio encoding from channel-based immersive sources. Pricing for Dolby Atmos falls under the current add-on charges for Dolby Audio. Learn more about Dolby Atmos encoding in MediaConvert.
