The Future of Video Encoding with the HEVC Standard
HEVC is the most interesting and cutting-edge topic in the world of digital video compression right now. Around 20 years ago video compression was something of a novelty; today it’s ubiquitous. From TVs to smartphones and camcorders to PCs, most consumer electronic devices rely on video compression. New advances in this technology allow us to view hundreds of broadcast video channels over cable and satellite networks, and millions of hours of video over the Internet.
In this paper, find out about the HEVC standard, including:
- What is the HEVC standard, and how is it being used?
- How are current compression standards extended by HEVC?
- Which applications in particular may benefit from HEVC?
- Why is the HEVC standard the future of video encoding?
