Stryme Licenses MainConcept MPEG encoder SDKs for Genesix Video Server

MainConcept has licensed their professional HEVC/H.265, AVC/H.264, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 Part 2 SDKs to Stryme for their broadcast Genesix VideoServer V9. Supporting up to 16 channels simultaneously, Stryme additionally integrated the MainConcept HLS / MPEG-DASH Multiplexing & Packaging SDKs for OTT content generation, and the MainConcept RTP, RTSP, RTMP Network Server and client SDKs for receiving and distributing content from the server.

Genesix is Stryme’s all-in-one multi-channel 2U video server for broadcast professionals and live productions. For up to 16 channels simultaneously in real time, the server is suited to premier sports, news and studio productions. The basic configuration supports Ingest, playout and media asset management.

The Genesix V9 uses the MainConcept codec, converter and scaler packs for encoding, decoding and processing every format and every codec from HD up to 4K UHD. The integration of the MainConcept AVC/H.264, as well as the next-generation distribution codec HEVC/H.265, makes Stryme’s broadcast server ready for future-proof OTT streaming. Combined with the MainConcept HLS and DASH multiplexing & packaging SDKs, the video server covers the complete chain of adaptive streaming format creation, including playlist and manifest file generation.

“The multitude of different MainConcept SDK components cover every aspect of the professional broadcast production workflow ranging from ingest, decoding and processing to encoding and delivery, fulfilling the major requirement of handling every codec and every format in use today,” said Deacon Johnson, SVP global sales - technology licensing for MainConcept. “Being the driving force under the hood in Stryme’s broadcast video server, with our renowned HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 codec for up to UHD content, provides highest speed in extraordinary quality processing multiple channels in a live scenario.”
