CP PLUS to Implement H.265 Standards to Achieve Ultra HD at Reduced Bandwidth

cp plusCP PLUS Teknologix Labs is set to implement the H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) standard in its upcoming range of video surveillance devices.

The German surveillance brand’s cameras will support H.265 decoding and deliver its benefits while consuming less than 40% bandwidth capacity.

The company expects this to generate huge optimism given the industry’s struggle with bandwidth and storage as demands for delivering HD content across multiple platforms.

A video coding format is a content representation format for the storage or transmission of digital video content (such as in a data file or bitstream), with examples including MPEG-2 Part 2, MPEG-4 Part 2, H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10), HEVC, etc.

The existing H.264 standard offers between a 40-50% bit rate reduction over MPEG-2, yet is limited in term of delivering HD content for broadcast and online.

With 4K/Ultra-HD cameras heralded as the next revolution in video technology, the need for an improved H.264 standard was long overdue overdue. H.265 meets the exacting needs of rendering Ultra-HD images over even less bandwidth.

H.265 or HEVC doubles the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 while achieving the same level of video quality. Alternatively, it can provide substantially improved video quality at the same bitrate. It can also support 8K Ultra HD or resolutions up to 8192×4320.

The potential benefits offered by H.265 standards are as below:

  • Accelerate demand and sale of 4K/Ultra-HD screens, thus far limited due to large price tags and absence of UHD content. H.265 can offset the second challenge
  • Huge opportunities from reduced bitrate requirements enabling broadcasters and broadcast and online vendors to bundle more channels/content on existing delivery mediums
  • Far greater video quality experience compared to H.264 encoded sequence at same bitrate
  • Ability to offer higher quality video for bandwidth-constrained mobile networks
  • Realise differentiated and premium 4K content, multi-view encoding etc

CP PLUS surveillance and security systems are installed across the globe in a range of industries including highly sensitive defense locations, government buildings, vital infrastructures, transportation, hotels, educational insititutions and even private homes.
