H.265 Vs. H.264 - What’s the Difference?

HEVC, also known as H.265, stands for High Efficiency Video Coding. It is an advanced video compression standard that can encode video files twice as efficiently as its predecessor, Advanced Video Coding (AVC), also known as H.264, but with far less data and much lower bitrates.


How H.265 differs from H.264?

With its advanced video compression competence, H.265 allows for further reduced file size, therefore lower bandwidth consumption and less space taken up.
