Interested in how Apple’s adding HEVC to HLS is impacting streaming producer’s intent to start encoding with HEVC? How about their attitudes towards the Alliance for Open Media’s AV1 codec? A new report available on the Streaming Media website covers both of these issues and more.
Entitled, The Impact of Apple’s HEVC Adoption: A Survey-Based Report, the report asks how quickly the over 600 respondents anticipate supporting HEVC in HLS, as well as their plans for VP9 and AV1. It also delves into the concerns each publisher has about each format, such as unknown royalty costs (HEVC) or uncertain performance parameters (AV1). Anyone seeking a snapshot of how codec deployments will play out over the next 12-18 months should download this free report.
