About H.265 / HEVC codec
H.265, commonly known as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), is one of the video compression standards (codecs) approved by ITU-T in January 2013,H.263, 2003H.264 / MPEG-4 AVCFollowing the latest format. Compression technology is being optimized, and it has about twice the compression capacity compared to H.264. In addition, H.264 is the new standard for the first time in ten years,A standard that supports the next ten yearsIt is announced that it is. It is expected to reduce the overall load by compressing the movie data capacity which is said to account for 90% of Internet traffic around the world, and at the same time, movements adopted as a movie format for mobile terminals are also expected It is rising.

The image review introduced in the previous article is here. The upper left is HEVC 800 kbps, the upper right is AVC 800 kbps, the lower left is AVC 1500 kbps, and the lower right is the image of lossless. You can see that HEVC 800 kbps and AVC 1500 kbps are nearly equivalent image quality.
