The Ramifications Of H.265

H265The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recently approved the next generation video format known as H.265, which would be the successor to the current H.264 standard. H.265, also informally known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is supposed to be twice as efficient as H.264 in terms of compression. H.265 relies on the fact that processing power is increasing on our devices, and uses more processing power to achieve better compression. Now how will this affect our lives? Is this just an algorithmic improvement or will it have a tangible impact?   Continue reading
