New 4K streaming standard could make Netflix, Amazon Prime … 2x faster

It is claimed H.266 only needs 5GB of data to transmit a 90-minute 4K video

A new video encoding standard that can split data usage in streaming streams in half.

The codec, which is called H.266 and Versatile Video Coding (VVC), was presented by the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Germany.

The organization creates broadband correspondence systems and vision and sound structures. He recently designed the MP3 document.

He says he joined forces with organizations like Apple, Ericsson, Intel, Huawei, Microsoft, Qualcomm and Sony.

The new standard claims to improve compression, which implies that the information needed for streaming and storing all video resolutions – from standard settings to 4K and 8K – can be significantly reduced.

The institute guarantees that this new standard requires only 5 GB of data to transmit an hour and a half of video in Ultra High Definition (UHD) (4K), whereas the previous standard would require 10 GB.
