+ - Intel Dishes On What Makes H.265 Worth Waiting For->

Deathspawner writes "It might be a while before we see H.265 ("HEVC") deployed to consumer products — or even to encoder's hands — but according to Intel, it's a codec that's well worth waiting for. Techgage recently had a chat with those at Intel who are deeply intwined in the H.265 development process, and it's given a couple of reasons why it's superior to H.264. More efficient compression algorithms (which sample from larger block sizes) and per-frame multi-threading (decode and encode) top the list. While it seemed unlikely that H.265 could live up to its promises of cutting the bit-rate of 1080p content by 50% and still retain the same IQ, Intel is willing to back those claims up."
