HEVC / H.265 doubles in efficiency by H.264 video codec

The Swedish delegation to MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) has announced officially the upcoming high efficiency codec H.265, also known as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding).

H.265

Apparently, thanks to new compression algorithms and methods, H.265 becomes double in efficiency to its predecessor H.264 codec used for such videos in high definition.

Which implies that more efficient compressed information per second, which ends resulting in the possibility of playing videos with a higher bitrate (better quality) and occupy less space / less data streaming. Even it is possible to view videos via streaming 2K and 4K without requiring a bandwidth enormous.

H.265 / HEVC come as standard next year and is expected to begin in adopting smartphones and tablets finally going to end desktop computers, ultrabooks and portable consumer electronics also.
