Before we start, you may be interested in High Efficiency Video Coding. HEVC, developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC), stands for High Efficiency Video Coding (well known as H.265). It is an advanced video compression standard and a successor of the widely adopted H.264 (aka MPEG-4 Part 10, Advanced Video Coding or MPEG-4 AVC).

How Does HEVC/H.265 Work?

HEVC aims to encode video at the lowest possible bit rate by using a tool like CTU (Coding tree unit) to save around 50% of the bitrate while maintaining a high level of video quality in transmission with lower bandwidth utilization ratio. To put it simply, compared with H.264 video, H.265 video offers a smaller video size at the same level of video quality, and enhances video quality at the same bitrate. Furthermore, this new video compression standard greatly improves the bit-stream so users can take less time to stream videos and save more room as such videos are compressed at a smaller size but with good quality.

Meanwhile, HEVC supports resolutions from 240P (320x240) up to 8K UHD 4320p (7680x4320). It means we are able to directly play 4K, and 8K UHD videos online on smartphones, tablets and other portable devices. HEVC has already been integrated into more and more consumer products and services like TVs, mobile devices, Netflix, especially the 4K Ultra HD TV in 2020 like Sony's A8G series, Samsung The Frame 4K QLED TV, etc. HEVC will become a mainstream trend in the near future.
