Purchasing Additional Capacity for a Reserved Queue in AWS Elemental MediaConvert

If you want to increase the number of jobs that your reserved queue can process at once, you can purchase additional capacity for it. To purchase additional capacity, you extend your existing commitment with a new 12-month commitment for a larger number of RTS. The new commitment begins when you purchase the additional capacity. You can't decrease the number of RTS in your reserved queue.

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS Elemental MediaConvert console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/mediaconvert.

  2. On the navigation bar of the MediaConvert console, choose the Region where you created the reserved queue.
