100% Better Than H.264: HEVC alas H.265 Is Coming

100% Better Than H.264: HEVC alas H.265 Is Coming | Online Video Publishing |

Robin Good's insight:

The new video codec standard promising reduced file sizes, better compression and faster downloads its making its final rounds of approval while being gradually integrated into new products (the iPad already does).

Within a year or two it will be on our video export option list.

From the blog at "HEVC (sometimes called H.265) succeeds H.264 and is set to become essential to the development and distribution of high resolution video formats, such as Ultra High Definition.

The first devices to deploy HEVC support are expected to reach market early this year, Rovi Corporation announced at CES this month. The standard is expected to be ratified in early 2013."

"Once deployed, video consumers should be able to download video at the same quality as today in up to half the time, using up half the storage space when they do."

"HEVC/H.265 supports resolutions up to 8,192-x-4,320 and delivers double the data compression ratio of H.264. Where H.264 supports a maximum macroblock of 16-x-16 pixels, HEVC delivers up to 64-x-64 pixels."

Must read. 7/10

Video Codecs: H.265 Is Next

Video Codecs: H.265 Is Next | Online Video Publishing |

Key highlight from the article:

"The H.265 video codec, also known as High Efficiency Video Coding or HEVC, is being designed to replace the current H.264 standard used for high definition and Full HD (1920x1080) video encoding and decoding.


The Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding reached a new milestone for the H.265 video codec during the past week, and is about to unleash the new “monster” video standard within the next year.


H.265 will be designed to support new, still to be created video delivery and streaming technologies from day one, including devices working at 4K and Ultra HDTV (also known as 8K or 4320p) resolutions.

Just to put things in perspective, the Ultra HDTV definition contains about 16 times the amount of pixels present in a 1080p video stream."
