T102. HOW-TO: Comparing AV1, VP9, HEVC, & H.264
Tuesday, May 8: 11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Many content distributors and aggregators still use H.264 as their primary, if not exclusive, codec, but the bandwidth savings promised by newer, more powerful codecs are alluring. Those considering a switch must evaluate at least three options: HEVC, VP9, and AV1, which is being released in early 2018. In this session, codec specialist Jan Ozer evaluates the quality of these codecs and compares them to H.264. Learn how much bandwidth you can save with each, and how the newer codecs compare from quality and implementation perspectives.
