MainConcept® has released a new version of its production ready real-time multi-screen HEVC / H.265 and AVC / H.264 encoding platform NeuLion® MC Encoder 2.7.1 that now includes support for DELTACAST’s Delta-3G-elp-d 8c multi-channel SDI capture board to allow up to 4K60p ingest on Windows.
Thanks to DELTACAST’s straightforward driver integration, the NeuLion MC Encoder can use the Delta-3G-elp-d 8c SDI capture board to create HEVC and AVC adaptive streaming content for MPEG-DASH and HLS in up to UHD.
This gives NeuLion MC Encoder users more freedom in choosing DELTACAST’s renowned SDI capture and playout boards for powering their professional production workflow.
The NeuLion MC Encoder is a production ready real-time multi-screen encoding platform on Windows and Linux for SDI and IP sources for creating Apple HLS, DASH-264 and DASH-265 compliant adaptive streaming content up to 4K 10-bit and different HDR flavors like HDR-10, PQ10 and HLG with multi-bitrate and multi-resolution quality layers. Powered by the renowned MainConcept Codecs, the platform offers ready-to-use encoding presets for HEVC HLS, compliant with Apple’s recently published authoring guidelines, so it can combine HEVC/H.265 in fMP4 and AVC/H.264 in TS, including generation of hybrid HLS playlists. The NeuLion MC Encoder additionally allows parallel live HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 hardware encoding on single cost-efficient desktop Intel Core i7 and Xeon E3 CPUs with a dedicated Intel graphics unit.
