HEVC / H.265
HEVC / H.265 is an open standard intended to leverage exceptionally efficient video compression techniques. Without sacrificing video quality, HEVC can reduce the size of a video file or bitstream by as much as 50 percent compared to AVC/H.264 or as much as 75 percent compared to MPEG-2 standards. This results in reduced video storage and transmission costs and also paves the way for higher definition content to be delivered to consumers.
