HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) – also known as ITU-T H.265 – is a new, paradigm-shifting video compression technology that promises up to 2X bandwidth savings over H.264 based compression. This promise of bandwidth reduction has made HEVC a key factor that drives better quality at the same bandwidth and enables deployments of higher resolutions like 4K/UHD possible.

Ittiam has been at the forefront of delivering products based on H.265/HEVC technology. Available for licensing since 2012, Ittiam’s H.265 products are production ready, validated and deployed by several customers. Focused on compression and performance efficiency, Ittiam’s products are consistently rated high.

Ittiam offers a full suite of H.265/HEVC products. Our solutions cater to a wide range of applications like content repurposing, Over-the-Top (OTT) delivery, VoD, Adaptive Streaming, Contribution encoding and live streaming/encoding.
