HEVC stands for High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as H.265. It’s an advanced compression standard and the successor of H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC). HEVC aims to encode videos at the lowest possible bit rate by using a tool like CTU (Coding tree unit) to save around 50% of the bitrate while maintaining high video quality in transmission with lower bandwidth utilization ratio. Compared with H.264, H.265 offers a smaller video size at the same level of quality, and enhances video quality at the same bitrate.
