HEVC / H.265

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new Standard for video compression developed by the ISO and ITU-T. The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) set up a Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) to create the new standard. HEVC is a joint publication of ISO/IEC and ITU-T, formally known as ISO/IEC 23008-2 and ITU-T Recommendation H.265. The new HEVC standard was first published in January 2013.
