Anevia ViaMotion OTT System Supports H.265 HEVC Standard

News Image
French TV and VOD delivery group Anevia has announced that its ViaMotion multiscreen OTT video system now supports the H.265 HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) next-generation data compression standard. This support covers all OTT protocols including MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP).

Designed as a successor to the H.264/MPEG-4 standard, HEVC supplies twice the data compression ratio used in H.264, maintaining the same level of video quality. HEVC can alternatively be used to provide substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate.
Tools include more precise intra prediction, motion compensation and motion-vector prediction to achieve an encoding and decoding protocol to be used for all standard-definition and high-definition video scanning resolutions. HEVC is also designed to be compatible with future television distribution resolutions such as 4K and 8K ultra-high-definition for viewing on compatible devices.
"This new advance equips ViaMotion not just for today but well into the foreseeable future of the broadcast market," says Anevia CTO Damian Lucas. "It gives video content producers, owners, publishers and playout service-providers the ability both to store and to deliver programmes with the greatest possible data efficiency.
"Anevia remains at the forefront of innovation, offering its customers the latest technology with which they can deliver a higher quality video experience to subscribers using household, desktop or mobile viewing devices."
