AWS Elemental MediaConvert has added support for HDR10+ metadata analysis and insertion. HDR10+ is a technology that further enhances HDR video with dynamic color metadata for viewing devices to adjust automatically on a scene-by-scene basis. Using MediaConvert you now have the option to perform a HDR10+ analysis on your HDR10 content and then to insert the resulting metadata into the encoded outputs for consumption on HDR10+ enabled devices. This metadata is treated like an enhancement layer to the base HDR10 metadata and allows for backwards compatibility with HDR10 compliant devices that do not have support for the enhanced HDR10+ metadata.

Using MediaConvert to generate HDR10+ HEVC content provides you with a single asset that is compatible with both standard HDR10 and HDR10+ enabled displays. HDR10+ is available as a Professional tier add-on feature and is compatible with the HEVC video codec. Pricing details can be found on the MediaConvert pricing page.

With MediaConvert, audio and video providers can easily and reliably transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. You can build workflows to generate high-quality video outputs in minutes instead of weeks or months. MediaConvert is easy to use with a pay-as-you-go pricing model, offering a high degree of availability, reliability, and scalability.
