DVR H.265 VS H.264

Recent Technology has emerged in the CCTV industry and CCTV DVR Technology has changed in the last couple years.

Recent technology known as H.265 (also called HEVC – High Efficiency Video Coding) has emerged. In this post, we compare H.265 to its predecessor, H.264, and explore what H.265 means for your DVR playback.
H.264 (also called AVC – Advanced Video Coding) is an industry standard for video compression that allows for the recording, compression, and distribution of digital video content.

It works by processing frames of video using a block-oriented, motion-compensation-based video compression standard.
H.265 is more advanced than H.264 in several ways. The main difference is that it allows for further reduced file size, and therefore reduced required bandwidth, of your DVR playback.

Because H.265 compresses your data so much more efficiently, using it as your video compression tool will drop your bandwidth and storage requirements by roughly 50%. That is Huge !!!!!!!!!

So if your using old H.264 its time to Upgrade the DVR to H.265
SVT has been using H.265 in all our DVR since 2018.
