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 the H.264 or MPEG-2 standards and delivers an average bit rate reduction of 50% over H.264 and delivers higher quality at the same bit rate. Demand for high quality video for a multitude of consumer-driven applications has driven this standard into prominence in the recent years.
This white paper from Interra details the technical issues around developing HEVC-based video codecs, including complexity, compression, quality and buffer analysis.
