Industry-leading MainConcept® video encoders power NeuLion's production ready OTT and broadcast software solution with live HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 encoding for MPEG-DASH and HLS

LAS VEGAS, NV – 4/25/17NeuLion, 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 at the 2017 NAB Show that its subsidiary MainConceptGmbH has released the highly-anticipated Linux version of their ready-to-use NeuLion® MC Encoder.

The NeuLion MC Encoder is a production-ready, real-time multi-screen live encoding platform that allows input from SDI and IP, including UDP, RTMP and HTTP for transcoding into adaptive streaming formats. It can encode up to 4K/60p 10-bit HEVC/H.265 live streams, including HDR-10. Creating Apple HLS, DASH-264 and DASH-265 compliant streams up to 4K/60p, with multi-bitrate and multi-resolution quality layers, the NeuLion MC Encoder takes care of packaging as well as playlist generation. For live archiving, the product optionally writes files to disk or Amazon S3 locations.

The new Redundancy Management feature adds several flexible 1+1 and N+M failover modes to provide uninterrupted service and automated channel recovery in case of an outage or hardware failure. Loudness normalization based on CALM-Act and EBU R128 guarantees that encoded content matches today's broadcast regulations.

“We combined the market-proven NeuLion® Digital Platform with MainConcept's best quality and high performance HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 Video Encoders, making the NeuLion MC Encoder an excellent alternative to existing live encoding solutions,” said Deacon Johnson, SVP Global Sales - Technology Licensing for MainConcept at NeuLion. “With live HEVC/H.265 4K60p encoding up to 10-bit – and now with support for Linux –   the NeuLion MC Encoder can be the driving force behind any OTT and broadcast service targeting adaptive streaming content creation. This new release offers an affordable tool that helps establish the HEVC/H.265 format as the leading multi-screen experience in the market.”
