Approved by the next-generation video format H.265, twice as efficiently compresses video


27/01/2013

The International Committee of the Telecommunication (FEM) has approved a new video format, which will make available HD-video to mobile networks. The standard H.265, known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is designed to provide access to streaming high-quality video even on networks with low bandwidth.

This new codec is the successor of H.264, which has become the de facto standard for almost all Video Publishers after the release of the iPad and similar devices.

The advantage of the new format in the fact that, thanks to the advanced compression techniques, it allows you to transmit over the network 1080p-video, spending half the bits.

With the advent of 4K TV comes time to ultra-high-definition video. The only problem is that the network is not able to support the load at a level required to transmit such video. Thanks to H.265, network with a capacity of 20-30 Mbps to be able to transmit 4K video. Although this is a lot, but well within the capabilities of modern technology.

While programs for coding video in this format will be later this year, the spread of this codec will only be when the chips are embedded in, and iron. It will take 12 to 18 months, and maybe longer, before the first devices with built-in acceleration of H.265 arrive on the market.
