High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265, promises twice the compression possible with Blu-ray’s best video compression methods. But how does it work, and is it enough to get us better-looking 4K content?
Few budget speakers look or sound this good, says the Audiophiliac.
The H.265 video standard, aka HEVC or MPEG-5, squeezes more pixels over a network connection to support new high-resolution 4K TVs. Broadcom's chip supports both and is due to arrive in volume next year.
The next-gen video compression technology shrinks video by 40 to 45 percent compared to today's prevailing H.264. But encoding H.265 video takes a long time right now.
It looked like compression technology for superhigh-quality video would be free for watching movies and TV online. Not so, according to a new patent-licensing group that wants a cut of the revenue.
The sixth generation of the chip maker's processors will feature four processing cores and up to eight graphics cores.
HDMI 2.0a is the latest update to the HDMI specification. Here's what it is, and what it means, and why you should care.
The company's NAB announcements for upgrades and new products look like some really useful features.
So-called 4K video could arrive later and cost more because of a surprise royalty demand for a certain video compression technology.
So you bought a new 4K TV and you're wondering what's on. The answer right now is: not much. But the list is growing. Here's a look at what you can watch now in 4K, and what's coming down the pike in the near future.
