There is a new kid in town.  H.265, H.264’s big brother. So now when everyone’s  finally got the H.264 thing down and got their new shiny LED tv with a built in H.264 receiver, here comes a new codec.

Considering that during 2011, mobile networks delivered over a BILLION Gigabytes of data, a new compression codec might be a good idea. For us on the video side we are happy to see a high quality codec to deliver our content in.  I am not sure 8K UHDTV will be anything to look for in 2013 but another 5-10 years perhaps.  Either way its an interesting article.
