AWS Elemental’s file-based video transcoding service MediaConvert has added support for HDR10+ metadata analysis and insertion.
According to the company, the addition enables users to perform a HDR10+ analysis on HDR10 content and then to insert the resulting metadata into the encoded outputs for consumption on HDR10+ enabled devices. The metadata is treated like an enhancement layer to the base HDR10 metadata and allows for backwards compatibility with HDR10 compliant devices.
AWS said employing MediaConvert to generate HDR10+ HEVC content provides users with a single asset that is compatible with both standard HDR10 and HDR10+ enabled displays.
AWS Elemental MediaConvert enables video providers with any size content library to transcode on-demand content for broadcast and multiscreen delivery. The service functions independently or as part of AWS Media Services.
