With the rapid development of electronics industry, we are overwhelmed by a variety of new digital products. 4K technology matures lead to the fast arrival of HD era . Many professional filmmakers, videographers are all looking forward to the latest and HD products appear on the market. For many person who just touch the electronic world, the thing which makes them very confused is that the difference, the advantages and disadvantages among those codecs. So let's take a detailed look at those codec.
H.264 high profile
This codec is not a stranger to most people, essentially all of the electronic digital products now support this encoding format. And various extensions of its capabilities have been added in subsequent. The intent of the H.264 project was to create a standard capable of providing good video quality at substantially lower bit rate than previous standards, without increasing the complexity of design so much that it would be impractical or excessively expensive to implement.
The major profile of H.264 can be divided into three categories: baseline, main, high profile. In simple words, baseline is for the incompatible problem to your old system with some videos encode with new codec. Choosing this H.264 baseline profile can easily solve this problem.
H.264 main profile is a transitional codec which is eliminated gradually. H264 high profile is a wide spread codec which is supported by almost all the HD devices, TV, portable devices, etc. The output quality is much better than those baseline and main profile while the file size is smaller but the converting time is much longer than those two.
Previous versions of H.264 have been designed primarily for distribution and not for capturing video. This has led to inefficiencies and difficulties with scaling for higher bitrates. For example, the type of H.264 that was designed for Blu Ray and for satellite transmission was never going to be ideal for cameras. By going back to the basic building blocks of the format, Sony has been able to make a codec that is equally happy in a camera and in post production and which brings tangible benefits to both. This is much better than with previous generations of H.264-based codecs which were arguably not optimal for use at the front end of production.
This H.265/HEVC codec is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-1 AVC at the same level of video quality. It can almost support 8K UHD (8192x4320), which laid a solid foundation for the coming 4K Time.
Higher video quality while smaller size is an outstanding feature of this codec, for example a 137 MB video will reduced to 37.7 under H.264 while shrink to 17.7 codec by H.265 very obviously. And compared to video quality, the H.265 is much better than H.264 for every vivid detail is so realistic. Further learning about H.265/HEVC codec and detailed common formats to H.265/HEVC can be fond here.
Now you may wonder how to deal with those codec to a compatible format?
Here suggest you this brand new HD H.265/HEVC All-in-one Converter. This new software added many features in the new update version. You can see its format list to find the H.265 high profile, H.265/HEVC .
If you want to adjust your parameters, just click "Settings". And you can see the whole output file size.
If you want to drop your quality degradation to the least, here are two ways for you to try:
1, Go to the "Settings" UI and keep the original settings.
2, Choose H.264 high profile as your output format.
Both these two ways can make the converted files near to the original one.
With this useful tool , you can do whatever you want with this H.265/HEVC HD videos as you want. No matter do some following edits to make some short movie, or stream them to HDTV to enjoy the most vivid video in cloase distance, or watch the HD HEVC videos wherever and whenever you want. This H.265/HEVC Converter can help you once for all.
