High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is an emerging standard designed for encoding and decoding video streams. It can be stored and delivered more efficiently and economically than such predecessors as H.264 or MPEG-2 and delivers an average bit rate reduction of 50% over H.264 with higher quality at the same bit rate. Demand for high quality video for consumer-driven applications has driven this standard into prominence.
This white paper from Interra details the technical issues around developing HEVC-based video codecs, including complexity, compression, quality and buffer analysis.
