MainConcept Enables Canon XF-HEVC Workflows

AACHEN, Germany, Sept. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MainConcept, a leading provider of video codec technology, today announced that it has added support for ingesting HEVC 4:2:2 files generated by the brand-new Canon XF 705 camera to its HEVC/H.265 Decoder SDK.

With the XF 705 camera, introduced at today's IBC in Amsterdam, Canon is the first to leverage the higher compression efficiency of HEVC/H.265 to store data and allow simultaneous recording of HDR and SDR without doubling storage space requirements. Canon’s decision to package 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC/H.265 into an MXF container allows existing workflows to support the same metadata as with current, AVC/H.264-based broadcast formats.

MainConcept has worked closely with Canon to ensure interoperability and reliable ingest of files recorded by Canon XF-HEVC capable cameras. Editing and Media Asset Management applications can easily ingest or playback the new format natively by integrating MainConcept HEVC/H.265 Decoder SDK version 10 which is being released at IBC 2018. This SDK includes components for video and audio decoding as well as MXF demultiplexing.

“MainConcept has a long history of successful collaboration with professional camera manufacturers,” said Thomas Kramer, VP Product Management for MainConcept. “Being the select partner for Canon’s release of their XF camera line is yet another important milestone in enabling native ingest workflows in our customers’ applications. Canon’s appreciation for HEVC/H.265 as a recording and production format underlines the importance of this most efficient codec in the professional production space.”

“We are proud to work with MainConcept as our software partner,” said Edakubo Hiroo, Deputy Chief Executive at Canon’s Image Solutions Business Operations. “They provide the most reliable codecs and great interoperability that companies require when ingesting recorded content. Many of the broadcast software vendors in the market rely on MainConcept SDKs and can now enable their workflow applications with ingest and playback support when we launch our new camera at IBC.”

The MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK and other codec packages are available for immediate testing now. Please fill out our online ENDA to request a free evaluation trial.
