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

Please note that on Windows you must configure Docker for Linux Containers, so you should use the CE (Community Edition) rather than EE (Enterprise Edition) version of Docker. Docker CE requires a full GUI to install, so for this reason, Windows Server 2016 users must have the full ‘desktop experience’ installed. The lighter-weight versions of Windows Server 2016 cannot be used because they do not have a full GUI. Other versions of Windows only have a full GUI. Due to some limitations in VirtualBox, MainConcept 2GO does not work if you are running the VM tool with Windows Server 2016.
