Panvidea Integrates MainConcept MPEG-2 Encoder

Panvidea has licensed and implemented MainConcept’s MPEG video encoder. The MainConcept encoder produces very clean results at relatively low to moderate bit rates and will provide significant performance improvement for Panvidea customers.

MainConcept’s MPEG-2 codec has become an industry standard amongst digital media enterprises including TV networks, movie studios, and cable delivery providers. In recent years, MainConcept has developed a complete range of standards-based codecs and established long-term relationships with many leading broadcast suppliers worldwide.

“Anyone who is truly serious about producing and distributing high quality, professional video content knows that MainConcept is one of the most important players in the business,” says Chris Cali, CEO and co-founder of Panvidea:  “Their name is synonymous with quality, performance, and innovation. No video encoding or processing vendor can claim to be a trusted partner to professional broadcasters, advertisers or marketers without providing complete support for MainConcept’s MPEG-2 codec.”

The move comes on the heels of Panvidea’s addition of several major new clients, including A&E Television Networks, Fox Broadcasting Company and Getty Images.

“We are extremely pleased to add Panvidea to our list of customers,” says Muzaffer Beygirci, Managing Director and VP Worldwide Sales of MainConcept GmbH. “Panvidea’s scalable, on-demand video processing model, and support for professional distribution to all platforms and devices, provides a perfect match for MainConcept’s core philosophy of ‘Every Codec. Every Platform.’”
