AWS Elemental MediaConvert endpoints and quotas - AWS General Reference

AWS Elemental MediaConvert endpoints and quotas

The following are the service endpoints and service quotas for this service. To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. In addition to the standard AWS endpoints, some AWS services offer FIPS endpoints in selected Regions. For more information, see AWS service endpoints. Service quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of service resources or operations for your AWS account. For more information, see AWS service quotas.

Service endpoints

Use these endpoints only to request an account-specific endpoint, using the DescribeEndpoints operation. Send all your transcoding requests to the account-specific endpoint that the service returns. For more information, see Getting Started with the API in the MediaConvert API Reference.
