New and improved HEVC

In our strive to deliver the best and most comprehensive solution for high quality video over the internet we’ve added a new implementation of HEVC (H.265) to deliver an even better solution for high quality, low latency video. 

The implementation allows users to adjust the parameters to achieve the balance they need. They can achieve better perceived quality at the same bitrate as H.264, or they can maintain their accustomed quality level at a lower bitrate to save bandwidth.

In instances where our customers aim to conduct a low-latency multi-camera remote production in areas with challenging Internet connectivity, they often face obstacles.  By utilizing HEVC, they can achieve sub-second latency with a bitrate as low as 2 Mbps per camera over 4G/5G, ensuring high-quality video reaches the control room.

Video Multimethod Assessment Fusion (VMAF) is an objective full-reference video quality metric developed by Netflix in cooperation with the University of Southern California. VMAF scores range from 0 to 100, with 0 indicating the lowest quality, and 100 the highest. The diagrams below show a comparison between our current H.264 implementation and the new HEVC  implementation spanning over different bitrates.

HEVC is a software upgrade and is supported on both the Direkt link and Direkt router. Reach out to your technical sales manager to test this new option today. 

Please contact us if you have any questions or if you’d like us to help you with your upgrade. Some features might need to be enabled through your Intinor contact after upgrade.
