Codec and streaming technology provider MainConcept has announced that its 2GO solution is now available.

Each 2GO module is a single ready-to-use product within a Docker container that allows fast integration, high scalability and flexible deployment for self-managed broadcast workflows or OTT services on premise or in the cloud.

MainConcept: Workflow

Today’s production workflows are heterogeneous installations, no standard software fits all possible requirements for data transfer, platform integration, scalability, user interface or codec and streaming features.

Thus, creating an optimised broadcast workflow is a challenge. MainConcept 2GO’s containerised microservice modules are building blocks that offer balance between flexible usage and fast integration in broadcast production environments or services. Bundled in an isolated container each 2GO product is said to be safe to run, easy to deploy, scale and ready-to-use.

For the official launch of MainConcept 2GO, customers can download free trial versions of various use-cases including OTT file and live encoding to Apple HLS and MPEG-DASH, transcoding to professional camcorder formats from Sony and Panasonic, Canon XF-HEVC conversion, proxy file generation, as well as AAC and Dolby audio conversion.

“MainConcept’s codec and streaming SDKs are integrated in most of today’s professional broadcast applications. We are now bringing these technologies to the next level by providing ready-to-use microservice modules for the fastest and most flexible integration in broadcast workflows and OTT services,” said Thomas Kramer, VP product management for MainConcept.

“The easy usage and scalable deployment of MC2GO - leveraging standard container management tools - does not require any programming skills. Even better, MC2GO is fast to download, install and license.”
