AWS Elemental MediaConvert now supports video pass-through for mezzanine video formats. You can now run MediaConvert jobs that preserve the original video essence without re-encoding for intra-frame-only video formats like AVC Intra, Apple ProRes, VC3, and JPEG2000.

Video pass-through enables you to use MediaConvert for tasks like trimming content, changing audio tracks, and changing output containers without re-compressing video. Leaving the video unprocessed often results in faster job completion times and lower costs than equivalent jobs which transcode the video.

Video pass-through is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
