MainConcept 2GO Now Available On AWS

New channel aims to make it easier to enable encoding, transcoding, and streaming features for broadcast and OTT distribution

MainConcept, a provider of codec and streaming technology, says its 2GO product line of cloud transcode solutions is now available in AWS Marketplace. Introduced last summer, MainConcept 2GO is comprised of pre-configured containerized microservice applications designed to simplify workflow tasks within typical broadcast and OTT environments. Already downloadable as stand-alone products for installation within an organization’s existing cloud or onsite infrastructure, the AWS Marketplace offering adds the option of running the same products on a flexible-use basis.

“With over 25 years of innovation in broadcast and OTT delivery, MainConcept has helped solve some of the most complex issues in the industry,” said Thomas Kramer, VP, Product Management. “MainConcept 2GO addresses the next leap in technology by dramatically simplifying the production workflow process. Launching 2GO in AWS Marketplace with one click brings our technology to a wider audience, while maintaining the quality and reliability MainConcept has long been known for.”

AWS Marketplace is a digital catalogue with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS. Working through AWS Marketplace adds additional flexibility, allowing users to access the service via Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). There are no capital expenditures, and you only pay for the time used.
