PLAINVIEW, N.Y., April 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuLion®, Inc. (TSX:NLN), a leading technology product and service provider specializing in the broadcasting, distribution and monetization of live and on-demand digital video content to Internet-enabled devices, today announced that its subsidiary MainConcept GmbH is enabling hardware video encoding using NVIDIA NVENC technology in the 9th generation of its MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK.
In addition to providing best-in-class compression efficiency on the CPU, the MainConcept HEVC/H.265 Video Encoder now provides easy access to hardware encoding on NVIDIA GPUs through the well-known and robust MainConcept API.
“Enabling access to HEVC/H.265 video encoding in hardware allows our customers to continue working in the well-known MainConcept environment with its rich portfolio of multiplexers and auxiliary components, while benefiting from the computational power of the NVIDIA GPUs,” said Deacon Johnson, SVP Global Sales - Technology Licensing for MainConcept. “Using NVIDIA GPUs for HEVC/H.265 encoding increases server density for processing multiple video streams on one system while still having enough CPU cycles available for customer applications.”
“With NVENC available in MainConcept’s SDK, customers of NVIDIA GPUs — on their own servers or in supported cloud platforms — will benefit from all-in-one capabilities that combine hardware and software HEVC encoding with the streaming and packaging tools available in MainConcept’s product portfolio,” says Bob Pette, VP, Professional Visualization at NVIDIA.
The MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK version 9.0 is available now. Contact us for a free evaluation trial.
