Huawei, Qualcomm, Samsung present new video coding standard MPEG-5

Friday 8 May 2020 | 09:50 CET | News
Huawei, Qualcomm and Samsung have welcomed a new video coding standard called MPEG-5 Essential Video Coding (EVC). The standard delivers 4K UHD video with greater compression and efficiency when compared to the previous standard codec. It does this by improving compression capabilities; this in turn will let more screens display 4K, 8K, VR, AR and HDR content and help increase service possibilities. The standard is expected to help provide emerging delivery protocols and networks such as 5G.
