Leading Next – Gen Video Codecs
AI-Enabled Media Solutions
x266 is the next generation open-source VVC/H.266 compliant encoder, built on top of the industry-standard x265 HEVC encoder. The VVC/H.266 standard was developed with the goal of achieving twice the coding efficiency of the well-established HEVC (Rec. ITU-T H.265 | ISO/IEC 23008-2) standard. x266’s advanced features include the ability to encode video in High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG), 360° video, and SDR video. Leading the x266 consortium is MulticoreWare, that collaborates with various telecommunications, multimedia technology firms, and hardware platform enablement partners. MulticoreWare’s Video Technology Team specializes in micro-arch aware optimization, plays a crucial role in x266’s development, particularly with complex codecs.
MulticoreWare has formed an x266 (VVC) Consortium similar to its x265 consortium led development approach. Consortium Members are expected to contribute a reasonable investment towards development of the x266 encoder.
