Since its introduction, Adobe Premiere Pro CC has quickly gained reputation in the video editing world and is today used for large scale feature film productions as well as videography and YouTube publishing, and recently also in the field of 360/VR editing and publishing. This success is based on the wide format support and compatibility with cameras and camcorders, which Adobe summarizes with “Any camera. Any Format”.


The partnership dates back to 2001 when Adobe started powering their applications with MainConcept’s broad codec format support. Years of experience and close collaboration with large camera manufacturers like Panasonic and Sony ensure that MainConcept components can work equally well with XAVC, XDCAM, AVC Ultra and other MXF-based formats as with variable frame rate content from today’s smartphones, drones and other capture devices.

Adobe relies on MainConcept’s media importer to support MP4/MOV, MPEG Transport Stream and MXF-based source files in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder.

For finishing a project after editing, mixing and color grading Adobe also uses MainConcept’s industry-leading SDK components for mastering and exporting projects in files with strict adherence to specifications - be this XAVC or AVC Ultra for playout, plain vanilla AVC/H.264 for publishing to video portals, or specific custom formats based on the recipient’s requirements.

Adobe Media Encoder delivers all these formats with ease and precision in the best possible image quality - enabled by MainConcept’s broadcast codecs.
