In a world of growing professional business and consumer demand for content “anytime, anywhere,” it is essential to deliver high-quality solutions quickly to support the latest digital delivery formats and codec requirements. MainConcept SDK components are ideal for third-party integration, and, thanks to a common API architecture, help enable fast and efficient implementation of additional codecs and formats.
MainConcept SDKs enable solutions serving broadcasters, camera manufacturers, CE manufacturers, post-production facilities as well as medical and surveillance equipment manufacturers requiring top-tier codec support.
The MainConcept Codec SDK is a comprehensive A/V codec library for the rapid development and deployment of media solutions requiring encoding, decoding, multiplexing and demultiplexing support. Our SDKs enable industry standard codecs - such as AVC/H.264, JPEG 2000 and MPEG-2 – as well as support for next generation multimedia formats like MPEG-DASH and Apple HLS, as well as support for professional camera formats including P2 AVC-Intra, XDCAM and XAVC. Processing components for color conversion, scaling, and for ad-insertion using SCTE-35 technology are able to power every aspect of professional broadcast or OTT workflows.
The MainConcept HEVC/H.265 Codec SDK offers comprehensive encoding and decoding support for the HEVC/H.265 standard, from offline encoding to 4K60p live encoding on dedicated server platforms in excellent quality and tremendous speed. Additionally, our patent-registered SABET technology offering increased encoding efficiency for adaptive bitrates is also available for integration.
The Network Streaming Packages offer industry-leading streaming solutions for delivering video and audio content over a network or the Internet with exceptionally high quality. The components provide client- and server-side support for a range of protocols including RTSP, RTCP, RTMP, SDP, UDP, TCP and RTP. There also ready-to-use components for MPEG-DASH and Apple HLS content creation as well as delivery.
The Transcoding SDK consists of a powerful encoding and decoding engine supporting the full range of MainConcept codecs. Due to the extensive format support, the file-based transcoding engine offers highest flexibility to generate streams that are compliant to numerous devices and the latest standards such as HEVC/H.265, AVC/H.264, Sony XDCAM, Adobe Flash, Panasonic P2 AVC-Intra and DVCPRO as well as adaptive streaming formats such as MPEG-DASH and Apple HLS. The easy-to-use but flexible API reduces the time for an integration into existing workflows or developing new solutions significantly.
The MainConcept Mobile
SDK Packages enable real-time decoding on Android and
iOS ARM-based devices in various profiles up to 1080p, at levels supported by the HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 standards. The SDK includes powerful components for receiving adaptive bitrate streams like DASH and HLS over networks. Its software decoders offer broader format as well as feature support than built-in hardware decoder chipsets.
