HEVC/H.265 is the newest video compression standard set to bring a range of benefits such as the capability to produce improved video quality at the same bit rate and support for resolution up to 8192 × 4320, including 8K UHD. With the compatibility, Etere’s customers are equipped with more options to choose from.
