MainConcept SDKs are the largest library of multimedia components used for adding support of video and audio encoding, decoding, muxing, demuxing, transcoding, and streaming into broadcast software applications. And, thanks to a common API architecture, MainConcept enables fast and efficient implementation of additional codecs and formats. MainConcept SDKs are focussed on solutions serving broadcasters, camera manufacturers, CE manufacturers, post-production facilities and medical and surveillance equipment manufacturers requiring top-tier codec support. Since over 25 years MainConcept powers the video industry’s leading applications, services and environments.
Professional Solutions for Live and VOD
MainConcept applications offer flexible solutions for live encoding as well as file-based content preparation for VOD services. All solutions are integrating MainConcept SDKs for encoding, decoding and streaming. The MainConcept Live Encoder is the primary solution for OTT live encoding, powering hundreds of sports events and channels today with support for HEVC 4K60. The TotalCode transcoding suite includes three solutions, from an desktop-based application for small transcode jobs with TotalCode Studio, all the way up to scalable, cost efficient server distributed transcoding for high volumes and large archives with TotalCode Enterprise. Customers who need the transcoding solution quickly integrated with an existing workflow, use the command line tool TotalCode Engine. All TotalCode applications share the same transcoding core with interchangeable presets where users can easily create and test encodings with the advanced GUI of TotalCode Studio before deploying the presets to TotalCode Engine or Enterprise servers.
MainConcept plugins provide advanced codec functionality to a number of 3rd party applications, including TotalCode for Adobe Premiere Pro and AAC Encoder for Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, as well as Sony XDCAM, IBM Admira and DirectShow decoder packs for Windows based playback.
