THE WORLD’S MOST ROBUST HEVC CODEC SDK
V.265 from Vanguard Video is a fully functional HEVC software based encoder and decoder SDK. Recognized as one of the world’s most commercially deployed HEVC codecs available today, V.265 provides OEMs with an agile encoding framework with versatile libraries and sophisticated API that can be easily integrated into custom workflows and configured to suit both demanding high quality offline and real-time workflows.
Vanguard Video’s V.265 offers complete HDR compatibility with both Dolby Vision and HDR10 to support encoding of 10 and 12 bit deep pixels for expanded real world fidelity and image details. V.265 provides significant contribution encoding optimizations to support encodes as low as 2 frames and adds support for GOP-aligned adaptive bitrate (ABR) multistreaming, making it one of the most robust codec SDKs on the market.
