H.265 HD HEVC Video Format Is Ratified
We aren't moving in a direction where the world at large streams less: we're moving towards a world where streaming is the norm. While data caps and pricing tiers have flourished just as data use has started to skyrocket, streaming video remains a dodgy issue. It's obviously vital content, but it also requires massive amounts of data to transmit. The solution? According to the ITU, a new video coding standard. The entity has just issued a release that details H.265, which builds upon the successful H.264 codec used so much already. The ITU proclaims: "The new codec will considerably ease the burden on global networks where, by some estimates, video accounts for more than half of bandwidth use. ITU-T H.265 / ISO/IEC 23008-2 HEVC will provide a flexible, reliable and robust solution, future-proofed to support the next decade of video. The new standard is designed to take account of advancing screen resolutions and is expected to be phased in as high-end products and services outgrow the limits of current network and display . "
