The most recent video compression standard, HEVC/H.265, was placed into final draft for ratification earlier this year and is expected to become the video standard of choice during the next decade. As with each generation of video compression technology before it, H.265 promises to reduce the overall cost of delivering and storing video assets while maintaining or increasing the quality of experience delivered to the viewer. This session addresses what H.265 is, how it differs from previous generations of compression technology including H.264; key barriers to widespread adoption; and thoughts on when H.265 is likely to be implemented.
