Conceived to boost video streaming, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), aka H.265, is a video compression standard designed to substantially improve coding efficiency when compared to its precedent, the Advanced Video Coding (AVC), or H.264.With the development of video streaming on the Internet over popular websites such as Netflix and YouTube, and with 4K cameras gaining new ground in the market, a considerable amount of storage and bandwidth is required. HEVC promises a 50% storage reduction as its algorithm uses efficient coding by encoding video at the lowest possible bit rate while maintaining a high image quality level.
At the annual developer conference, WWDC, Apple announced widespread support for High Efficiency Video Coding. And from Apple TV 4K website, we have confirmed that the Gen 5 Apple TV does support HEVC video format. This post will show you how to get HEVC from any video for playback on Apple TV 4K, here we go!
