H.265 Video Codec Gets the ITU Seal Of Approval

Maximum PC: H.265 has been on our radar since early 2012, but as of today it has passed an important milestone. The ITU has given the new codec its official approval, paving the way for devices and software to start implementing the standard as they see fit. H.265 (also known as High Efficiency Video Coding), will cut the bandwidth requirements for streaming video in half, or for the Maximum PC crowd, double the amount data you can fit in the same sized container.
