Samsung, Huawei and Qualcomm have endorsed the release of new video coding standard, MPEG-5 Essential Video Coding (EVC).
The MPEG-5 EVC standard is a video coding standard for ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and the FDIS written description of the standard was officially released at the end of April 2020.
The electronics companies say they intend to work further to promote the technology and enable its rapid deployment and adoption.
The new codec will enable more screens to display 4K, 8K, VR, AR and HDR content.
The new EVC standard aims to provide a significantly improved compression capability over existing video coding standards and is expected to work well with emerging delivery protocols and networks, such as 5G, enabling the delivery of high-quality video services.
