Versatile Video Coding or VVC is ready: Up to 50 percent more economical than HEVC
The Berlin Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute has announced the completion of the video coding standard Versatile Video Coding or VVC or H.266 for short. A software decoder and decoder will be available by autumn. We are already working on chips, but they will take some time.
Same quality, half size. That promises the video coding standards Versatile Video Coding or VVC for short. Whether this can always be achieved depends on the case, but the successor to High Efficiency Video Coding, HEVC or H.265 for short, should ideally compress 90-minute films with a UHD from 10 gigabytes to 5 gigabytes. At least, H.266 should compress 30 percent better than H.265 and offer a consistent viewing experience. Streaming services and infrastructure providers in particular benefit from this. In addition, video formats that are quite data-intensive should also benefit; such as high-resolution 360-degree video panoramas.
The standard has been adopted and a software decoder and decoder is to be provided by the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin by autumn 2020. It will take some time before the first devices come onto the market, which then also accelerate the H.266 hardware. Corresponding chips are in development, but even then the adaption should take time and also depend to a large extent on how quickly H.266 is adapted by the content industry.
In any case, the license costs should not fail, according to the joint video experts team of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) and the MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group). The licenses are to be issued under FRAND conditions via the specially set up Media Coding Industry Forum. FRAND stands for “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory”.
