Why You Need H.265?

The full name of HEVC (H.265) is High-Efficiency Video Coding, it is an evolution for a new technology of video compression. Its former version called Advanced Video Coding with the abbreviation AVC (H.264). Both of these tools aim at reducing the file sizes to offer the convenience of video streaming. With the comparison of HEVC and AVC, HEVC is said to compress the data to the half size with the same video quality. Video with HEVC format is able to maintain the same quality level but in smaller storage space.

H.264 does well in decreasing the file size of the videos with resolution ratio 720 and 1080. But, with the emergence of 4k security cameras in 8mp, H.264 fails to offer the appropriate file sizes for storage. That does not mean that H.264 is out of use in 4k video, it still serves lots of 4k cameras but requires more space to save these large files. However, H.265 is able to get a 4k security camera compressed more effectively without lowering the high quality of the video, as H.265 digital format just takes up the size of the half file of H.264.

A bit more power of processing is needed to decode H.265 than H.264. And a great number of video cards nowadays have the capability ofGPU in acceleration decoding, that means it will satisfy or exceed the technique requirement of H.265 decoding.
