In September 2015 the leading video codec in terms of compression efficiency was HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding, or H.265). The specification was approved by ITU-T in April 2013, and implementations were already available in both software and hardware form. It seemed that the video industry was ready to transition from H.264/AVC to this new  Read More
