AWS Elemental MediaConvert now offers the ability to encode video using the AV1 (AOMedia Video 1) codec. AV1 is an open video coding format designed for internet delivery and developed by the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia). A key benefit of AV1 is higher compression efficiency compared to the AVC (H.264) and HEVC (H.265) codecs. With AV1, you can deliver high-quality SD and HD video to mobile and other devices over congested or bandwidth-constrained networks at bitrates unachievable with traditional codecs. For details on AV1 pricing, please visit the MediaConvert pricing page.
With MediaConvert, audio and video providers can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. MediaConvert functions independently or as part of AWS 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 audio and video.
