H.265 (HEVC)

H.265 is a new video compression standard that supports the creation and playback of very high quality video such as 4K. Also called high efficiency video coding (HEVC), it provides 30 to 50% better compression performance than H.264 AVC.

Since H.265 supports 4K video resolution, it is essentially more than four times better video quality than 1080P. Aragon believes this codec will help promote video communication pervasiveness because of its improved compression and auto-scaling.

H.265 is now supported on multiple devices, so conferencing providers will follow rapidly as new encoders go into place.
