AWS Elemental MediaConvert now supports creation of the AV1 (AOMedia Video 1) format in 4K frame sizes and with 10-bit color depth. These enhancements expand the AV1 encoding capabilities of AWS Elemental MediaConvert to enable creation of High Dynamic Range (HDR) 4K content for display on modern, color rich 4K playback devices. With AV1, you can deliver high-quality SD, HD, and now 4K high dynamic range video to mobile and other devices at low bitrates unachievable with traditional formats such as AVC (H.264) and HEVC (H.265). For details on AV1 pricing, please visit the MediaConvert pricing page.

With AWS Elemental MediaConvert, audio and 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 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.
