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.
The latest updates to the company's Creative Cloud video applications tackle H.265 and HDR editing along with some user-requested features and an improved interface for working on touch devices and trackpads.
CNET breaks out the most important things to know when shopping for a new television.
A standards group completes its work on a compression technology called HEVC, or H.265, which promises to improve resolution, image quality, and color. Google's VP9 is waiting in the wings.
The technology, also called H.265 and the successor to H.264, promises to double video quality for better streaming and higher-res TV. But it'll come with a patent burden, too.
