MainConcept® Mobile SDK provides components for real-time decoding on Android and iOS ARMv7 and ARMv8 devices in various profiles and levels supported by the HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 standards. The SDK also includes a set of powerful network components for network streaming, including DASH-264 and DASH-265 playback. The included components allow decoding HEVC/H.265 Elementary Streams as well as H.264/AVC and AAC both in MP4, MPEG TS file format or as Elementary Stream on mobile devices. The package for ARM comes with a set of updated network components, in order to receive streams over the network. It allows users to receive and playback DASH-264 and DASH-265 content. In addition, the package contains a complete DLNA Stack Module, including a DLNA Media Server, DLNA Control Point as well as a DLNA Media Renderer.
