Discover a new degree of excellence with the H.264 Encoder v2 for Microsoft® Windows®, based on a completely rewritten engine! The current version offers encoding and decoding in highest quality. Moreover, the MainConcept H.264 Encoder v2 features extraordinary quality improvement. H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coding), also known as MPEG-4 Part 10, is poised to be a major video standard because it can replace several popular formats while offering significant advantages over them. Our encoder possesses a simple interface, which resembles that of the acclaimed MainConcept MPEG Encoder. This makes it easier for you to discover the unprecidented efficiency of the new format.

  • A straightforward encoding method
  • Advanced compression - a high rate-distortion efficiency which can result in significant bitrate savings over MPEG-2
  • Network friendliness - a network abstraction layer designed for highly efficient transmission of header data
  • Profiles for a wide variety of applications ranging from video telephony to high-end broadcasting and storage
  • Baseline, Main and High Profile
  • Quarter-pel motion-estimation
  • Motion-search range is not limited by encoder (only by Profile/Level)
