What Customers Think About MainConcept
MainConcept has been in the codec business for more than 25 years, and many of our customers have innovated right along with us. Hear what they have so say in this fast-paced sizzle video.
Adobe Case Study
Adobe and MainConcept have successfully collaborated for 20 years. Adobe® Creative Cloud applications (Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Media Encoder) need no introduction. They are used to create YouTube content, TV, movies, documentaries and other video content. With a wide range of ingest and output formats including XAVC, XDCAM or AVC Ultra, as well as HEVC/H.265 support and backwards compatibility with DV, they offer extreme flexibility to meet any workflow requirement. And now, MainConcept’s industry-leading video codecs are being used in Adobe video production software to facilitate the transition to ARM-powered chipsets powering Apple Macs and Windows PCs.
Anyware Video Case Study
The Anyware Video product portfolio consists of powerful video servers for capturing and transmitting content in multiple formats as well as highly flexible ingest, playout, editing and supervising solutions for broadcast automation. To handle all these tasks properly, users have to deal with content in numerous diverse formats each day. Anyware Video supports a huge set of formats in their OneGenie and DubMaster broadcast products by licensing major MainConcept codecs like HEVC/H.265, AVC/H.264, MPEG-1/2, DNxHD / DNxHR, DVCPRO HD and many more to fulfill their clients’ requirements.

Endeavor Streaming switched to MainConcept AVC for 2X better performance
Endeavor Streaming is on a near-constant pursuit to improve their encoding workflow. There wasn't data to suggest they could improve on x264 – that is, until they put MainConcept AVC to the test in a head-to-head face-off. In this case study we share the enlightening results – that MainConcept achieved an average of 100% speed improvement for encoding on-demand video, a 2X improvement, with no change to quality.
