HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—Aventura Technologies, Inc., will showcase H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding solutions at the ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits at McCormick Place in Chicago. The company’s new network security cameras and recorders feature 4K and high efficiency technology.

H.265 HEVC was approved April 13 as a standard for video compression developed by the ISO and ITU-T. It reduces the data required for high quality video coding by up to 50 percent, as compared to its predecessor, H.264. Significant development activities are also leading the way for an H.265 generation of enhanced video formats, scalable coding and 3D video extensions.

H.265 Bullet “While H.264/MPEG-4 was groundbreaking, its limits have been stressed,” said Aventura Technologies Managing Director Jack Cabasso. “Diversification requiring video beyond high-definition, simple capture and display and the need to transmit to more efficiently to mobile devices remained a challenge.”

H.265 Dome Cabasso said the security industry will benefit from HVEC because of a demand for IP cameras surpassing the 20 megapixel mark, multisensor HD cameras, multiviewing and multicasting capabilities and simultaneous display and record of multiple images.

“The obvious value of HEVC, at the most basic level is the ability to provide equivalent video quality to H.264 with half the requirements for bandwidth and storage or double the quality with the same bitrate,” Cabasso said. “It also has the ability to provide higher definition video, up to 35 megapixels and brings improvements in noise levels, color spaces and, most importantly for surveillance, an enhanced dynamic range.”
