Amazon Elastic Transcoder vs Zencoder: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon Elastic Transcoder as "Media transcoding in the cloud using Amazon EC2". Convert or transcode media files from their source format into versions that will playback on devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs. Create a transcoding “job” specifying the location of your source media file and how you want it transcoded. Amazon Elastic Transcoder also provides transcoding presets for popular output formats. All these features are available via service API, AWS SDKs and the AWS Management Console. On the other hand, Zencoder is detailed as "Cloud-based video and audio encoding product suite". Zencoder downloads the video and converts it to as many formats as you need. Every output is encoded concurrently, with virtually no waiting—whether you do one or one hundred. Zencoder then uploads the resulting videos to a server, CDN, an S3 bucket, or wherever you dictate in your API call.
