Unmatched HEVC/H.265 encoding and decoding quality and performance
30% more efficient than open source¹
2.5x with GPU acceleration²
with SABET Technology³
New heights for high-efficiency video encoding
MainConcept takes video encoding to new heights! With the MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK, compression is improved over AVC and you can operate using less bandwidth than with open source. In fact, the most recent codec performance comparison by the Moscow State University (MSU) proved MainConcept’s HEVC encoding superiority and showed 30% greater bitrate efficiency than open source for fixed resolution video encoding.
Accelerated hybrid GPU HEVC encoding
The Hybrid HEVC Encoder combines MainConcept’s market-leading algorithms for bitrate control and encoding with the unrivaled GPU performance of NVIDIA RTX technology, delivering up to 2.5x faster processing.1 This allows for more live channels per server with less demand for CPU resources when encoding, reducing overall hardware investments.

Smarter encoding with SABET Technology
Our patented Smart Adaptive Bitrate Encoding Technology (SABET™) gives you intelligent adaptive bitrate (ABR) encoding in a single instance by sharing processing data across up to 12 different profiles, reducing the total encoding time by over 30%.2

Seamless integration with NVIDIA & Intel hardware
The SDK supports hardware encoding via Intel® Quick Sync Video and NVIDIA NVENC. Both hardware options are enabled by a simple interface that lets you realize improved processing speed or an increased number of live channels per server. The hardware choice is yours. The benefit comes from the integration.
MainConcept HEVC now offers extended HDR signaling support for DVB Video encoding. There is also support for multiple natively progressive or interlaced decoder profiles from Main profile to 4:4:4 12-bit, and DVB-T2. Seamless hardware decoding support of H.265 video for improved CPU consumption with capable NVIDIA GPUs.
HDR processing & conversion*
With the MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK, you can not only output in SDR or two HDR formats, you can also convert between the formats in real-time. PQ/HDR-10 to HLG, HLG to PQ/HDR-10, PQ/HDR-10 to SDR conversion as well as full support for SMPTE-2086 metadata complete the decoder’s feature set.
