MainConcept, a leading provider of video codec technology, today announced the availability of a cross-platform SDK enabling developers to ingest Apple ProRes video from MOV and MXF containers in any software solution or workflow.
Apple ProRes is a major format used in professional production environments. The bitstream syntax of this intra-frame codec was publicly released as SMPTE RDD-36 in 2015. While ProRes video was originally designed to be carried in QuickTime’s MOV containers, SMPTE RDD-44 adds storage of ProRes in MXF file format for IMF-based workflows.
The MainConcept ProRes Decoder SDK 1.0 is now available for licensing to support native ingest from both MOV and MXF container formats for use in transcoding, editing and player applications without the need to install any 3rd party tools. MainConcept is first to offer a SDK for professional licensing that allows import and real-time playback of ProRes footage on Windows, macOS and Linux.
“MainConcept’s professional customers have been requesting support for Apple ProRes for quite some time,” said Thomas Kramer, VP Product Management for MainConcept. “We are elated to be the first to solve real-world video production workflow challenges, like decoding of ProRes on Linux, in addition to supporting native ingest of ProRes in both MOV and MXF containers on all major operating systems.”
