Secure Browser-based Video with WebAssembly
The industry-leading MainConcept WebASM HEVC Decoder runs natively in internet browsers
Nowadays, web app development that covers video decoding as a fundamental feature has become a real challenge. For security reasons, organizations and institutions may restrict potentially insecure browser plugins on end-user systems. Native playback is currently handled by HTML5, but HTML5 does not support newer codecs like HEVC/H.265.
Apps that use our WebASM HEVC Decoder can run natively in Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari where H.265 stream playback, editing or monitoring is required. MainConcept WebASM HEVC Decoder is also suitable for markets that demand low latency playback such as security, surveillance, governmental, and educational. Other use cases include live interactive video, browser-based remote gaming, proxy preview, and virtual/augmented reality.
If a workflow demands previewing live IP camera feeds or VOD content within an internet browser environment, the MainConcept WebASM HEVC Decoder is an ideal solution. MainConcept’s market-proven HEVC Decoder is now available for WebASM, allowing developers to create powerful browser apps supporting multi-threaded H.265 playback, editing or decoding on every system in every internet browser supporting WebAssembly. Since WebAssembly is offered in binary format, the MainConcept WebASM HEVC Decoder does not require specific hardware. It offers great quality and high performance even in low bandwidth environments, like playback of content captured on police bodycams.
If you are looking for the next generation web app development tool for mission critical solutions featuring HEVC video decoding, try the MainConcept WebASM HEVC Decoder SDK. Its lightweight architecture runs efficiently with minimal load-time and is designed to support future browser updates out-of-the-box.
