The latest release of the MainConcept SDKs, as always, were developed with industry professionals in mind and include performance enhancements and new features, guaranteeing that MainConcept codecs continue as the industry gold standard.
"This summer's SDK release exemplifies why MainConcept is the codec of choice for professionals in Video Production, Streaming and Broadcast the world over," said Deacon Johnson, Senior Vice President Technology Licensing and Strategy, MainConcept. "We continue to value quality, performance and reliability in our products, and while we maintain our existing portfolio, we are also developing new products and expanding our Professional Services offerings to enable our customers to bring products to market faster."
MainConcept's large and growing footprint in codec technology powers many of today's leading products from companies like Adobe, Autodesk, Avid, Grass Valley and MAGIX. MainConcept continues to add more features to existing codec SDKs, garnering more depth and utility into the arsenal of tools relied on by hundreds of technology partners and customers.
Performance is a priority for the MainConcept engineering team, exemplified by the results demonstrated in the highly respected Moscow State University (MSU) Video Codecs Comparisons. In the most recent HEVC codec comparisons, MainConcept bested all companies tested, topping the 10-bit encoding efficiency of open source by 30%. In the 8-bit encoding tests, MainConcept led the list for best speed to quality trade-off. This metric is especially important for streaming and other use-cases that rely on fast and reliable content delivery.

By unifying SDK releases on a single timeline, MainConcept has further committed to delivering meaningful and reliable upgrades across its complete codec portfolio. Merging the MainConcept ARM Desktop SDK into the same release cycle ensures that developers are all working from the same technology regardless of hardware.
