Preparing for H.265 (HEVC), the next generation video codec!
H.265 also referred to as HEVC is the next generation state-of-the-art in video compression. It allows the usage of advanced and extremely complex video compression tools to remarkable coding performance.
While H.265 isn't mainstream yet but because of its huge gains in compression efficiency it certainly is the buzz and is in position to overtake its forefather H.264, the foundation of most online video.
So how does H.265 (HEVC) compare to its predecessor H.264?
H.264 has been pretty much the standard since its arrival in 2003, using higher compression and smaller file sizes, H.264 reduced Bandwidth with its ability to compress video 40-60% more than older compression technologies such as Mjpeg and MPEG4. Resulting in higher video quality, dual streaming capabilities and lowering costs on video storage.
H.265 (HEVC) Explained:
In short H.265 (HEVC) can achieve more than 50% Bitrate reductions compared to H.264 for the same image quality. H.265 video surveillance products can also save 50% more network bandwidth and video storage capacity, greatly reducing the storage, bandwidth and operating costs.
Choosing the right NVR for your application!?
WECU can help you from start to finish in choosing the right H.265 NVR for your application based on your needs, wants and project requirements. For most high end projects you will be using PC based NVRs, whether they are desktop models, mini units, rack mount servers or ruggedized mobile NVRs due to their interoperability and multi function Video Management software platform, they will provide the cornerstone foundation for today's most demanding applications and many others for years to come.
