HEVC

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a video codec developed by MPEG. It is the successor to the popular AVC (H.264) codec, providing improved compression ratios, particularly at resolutions above 1080p. Decoders for HEVC are mostly found in smart TVs, set-top Boxes, and iOS devices, as such HEVC is commonly used to deliver high value UHD content. It is computationally expensive to encode and decode.
