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.

Support for a Wide Range of Devices

The Mobile SDK components work on every ARM CPU with ARMv7 (32-bit) and ARMv8 (64-bit) instruction sets running iOS or Android, such as NVIDIA Tegra 3, Apple A5/A6X and various ARM Cortex and Snapdragon CPU’s that can be found in the Apple iPad 3 (and higher), Asus Nexus 7, Sony XPERIA Tablet S, etc.

Adaptive Streaming Format Support

Receive and playback adaptive streaming formats such as Apple HLS, DASH-264 and DASH-265 in real-time on your ARM based iOS and Android device using either the built-in hardware decoders or the MainConcept Decoders included in Mobile SDK.

Accelerated Decoding

Hardware accelerated AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 playback by making use of NEON, Advanced SIMD and MPE optimizations in the MainConcept software decoders.

Same HEVC/H.265 Feature Set as for PC

The HEVC/H.265 Decoder for ARM has an identical feature set as the PC version, e.g. Main & Main 10, SAO / Deblocking, WPP, Tiles / Slices support and many more.
