Single feature modules

MainConcept 2GO products can be used as a lightweight standalone module or if required, connect with other modules to build a service chain that fulfills the requirements of a larger workflow.

Tech Specs

A MainConcept 2GO product is delivered as a download package. The package contains the actual MainConcept 2GO container binary as well as links to the online documentation, installation instructions, usage scripts and integration guidelines.

Before running the container it must be installed in the Docker(R) environment either locally or in farms using other container management tools like Swarm or Kubernetes. Example scripts show how to install, start and stop the container using various tools and with different parameters.

Once started, the MainConcept 2GO instance is active and ready to use. The interface for data transfers in and out depends on the type of 2GO product. For live streaming use cases MainConcept 2GO allows a direct IP network connection in and out of the container. For file-based use cases a folder on the host is mapped into the container and used for input and output.

MainConcept 2GO containers are best suited for large deployments in local or virtual server farms, including cloud platforms.

System Requirements

MainConcept 2GO products are containerized applications that run in all environments supported by Docker. Known systems include Microsoft Windows 10, Linux and most cloud platforms from Amazon, Microsoft and Google. Support on Windows 7, 8 and macOS is limited with Docker Toolbox and a 3rd party virtualization software.
