MainConcept Releases 2GO Microservice Modules

Codec vendor MainConcept has released 2GO, a module within a Docker container that is said to allow fast integration, high scalability and flexible deployment for self-managed broadcast workflows or OTT services on premise or in the cloud.

Today’s production workflows are heterogeneous installations, i.e. running on local server farms, in the cloud or as hybrid solutions, explains German-based MainConcept. “No standard software fits all possible requirements for data transfer, platform integration, scalability, user interface or codec and streaming features. Thus, creating an optimized broadcast workflow is a challenge."

MainConcept 2GO’s containerized microservice modules are described as building blocks with the perfect balance between flexible usage and fast integration in your broadcast production environment or service. 

“We are bringing our codec and streaming SDKs 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.”

For the official launch of MainConcept 2GO (MC2GO), 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 PanasonicCanon XF-HEVC conversion, proxy file generation, as well as AAC and Dolby audio conversion. The list of enabled products is constantly growing.
