#smwest Presentation: Understanding the Significance of HEVC/H.265

sm-west-arowsThe most recent video compression standard, HEVC / H.265, is expected to become the video standard of choice over the next decade. But as with each generation of video compression technology before it, there are key barriers to widespread adoption. At the Streaming Media West show, taking place Nov. 19-20 in Huntington Beach, encoding guru Jan Ozer will outline how H.265 promises to reduce the overall cost of delivering and storing video assets while maintaining or increasing the quality of experience delivered to the viewer. His presentation will address what H.265 is, how it differs from previous generations of compression technology including H.264, key barriers to widespread adoption, and thoughts on when H.265 is likely to be implemented.
