NeuLion’s MainConcept Business Licenses Codecs to MAGIX for Their Professional VEGAS Video Editing Product Line

Industry-leading MainConcept® codecs power VEGAS Creative Software enabling optimized performance, quality and creativity for comprehensive video editing

PLAINVIEW, NY — ( December 14, 2016) – 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 subsidiary MainConcept GmbH has licensed multiple professional MainConcept® codecs, such as AVC/H.264 Broadcast, MPEG-2 and DVCPRO HD, to MAGIX Software GmbH for use in its new VEGAS Pro and VEGAS Movie Studio software family.

Only four months after MAGIX, the German market leader in multimedia solutions, acquired the Sony Creative Software product line, it released VEGAS Pro 14 and introduced an efficient as well as robust video editing experience with a large set of exciting new features. VEGAS Pro and VEGAS Movie Studio provide tools for editors and filmmakers to be successful, allowing them to efficiently complete video production projects regardless whether they are semi-professionals or experienced broadcast producers.

The highly flexible MainConcept Decoder SDK components for AVC/H.264, MPEG-2, DVCPRO HD, as well as the Dolby® Digital Audio Decoder, enable instant timeline preview. When finalizing a project, the broadcast quality MainConcept encoders allow for rendering the timeline into many professional formats, including the most popular use-cases ranging from presets compliant with common consumer devices and optical media, up to high-quality archiving output.

“MAGIX and its VEGAS Creative Software have benefitted from MainConcept’s state-of-the-art codec technology for many years now,” said Deacon Johnson, SVP Global Sales – Technology Licensing for MainConcept at NeuLion. “By using the multiple profiles built into the AVC/H.264, MPEG-2 and DVCPRO SDKs, we enable professional camcorder support, like Sony XDCAM, Sony XAVC and Panasonic DVCPRO, as well as AVC-Intra in the VEGAS Pro product line. We are proud to continue being the driving force behind the new synergy between two powerful brands in the professional multimedia and video editing market.”

“MainConcept is a reliable partner with the most complete codec collection worldwide,” adds Hagen Hirche, CTO MAGIX Software GmbH. “They not only offer all professional audio and video codecs, but also provide us with full parameter access and top-notch image quality for our professional video editing applications like VEGAS Pro. For many years, MainConcept has been constantly improving and updating its codec library allowing MAGIX users to always stay compatible with latest technology trends.”
