Key Features


Smart Adaptive Bitrate Encoding Technology (SABET)

Efficient encoding of adaptive formats from a single source by sharing processing data across up to 12 different profiles, which reduces total encoding time by over 30 percent.


2-Pass Encoding

Up to 18% improved image quality compared to single-pass encoding with strict HRD- and target bitrate compliance.


High Dynamic Range Support

Signalling SMPTE 2084 based HDR-10 including SMPTE 2086 mastering display metadata and MaxFALL, MaxCLL. In addition, it supports HLG transfer characteristics signaling in accordance with ITU-R BT.2100-0.


Large Set of Decoding Profiles

Support of a many profiles in the MainConcept HEVC Decoder such as 4:2:0 8-bit (Main), 4:2:0 10-bit (Main 10), 4:2:0 12-bit (Main 12) and 4:2:2 8-bit (Main 4:2:2), 4:2:2 10-bit (Main 4:2:2 10) and 4:4:4 10-bit (Main 4:4:4 10), 4:4:4 12-bit (Main 4:4:4 12), DVB-T2. Additional, seamless hardware decoding of  H.265 video for improved CPU consumption if capable GPU available.
