If you’ve ever watched a DVD or streamed a video with Netflix, you have benefited from a video codec. This technology compresses a video file into smaller package, making it easier to store or transmit. For example, the new video codec – HEVC.
HEVC, short for High Efficiency Video Coding, is an successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). Also know as H.265, HEVC is the latest video compression standard that is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/AVC at the same level of video quality. Video encoded with HEVC will maintain the high visual quality, but at a smaller file size. Compared to the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High profile, the average bitrate reduction for HEVC was 52% for 480p, 56% for 720p, 62% for 1080p, and 64% for 4K UHD.
Today is the turn of HEVC. This new video codec is already becoming integrated in more consumer products with many of TVs and mobile devices being sold today are with HEVC decoding capabilities, especially the 4K Ultra HD TV. However, many applications and devices are still need time to support the new codec. Do you have some HEVC/H.265 files saved on your Windows or Mac, and wonder how to play or edit them?
