With the emergence of HD mobile devices, Ultra-HD TVs, and “anytime/anywhere” consumer expectations, demand for streaming video is out-stripping network bandwidth and storage at an increasing rate.
Squid’s encoder algorithms provide better visual quality and deeper compression. In response the broadcast and electronics industries adopted a new standard for video compression. The H.265 High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) promises significant reductions in video bit-rates, for more streams and higher resolutions to maximize the opportunities presented by explosive growth in consumer demand for streaming video. Industries that store and transmit video are now entering a period of disruptive transition as the bit rate efficiency of HEVC technology becomes a “must-have” feature for future video server products.
