In order to improve our customers an extraordinary using experience, Tenveo will add H.264 video compression technology.
Tenveo's USB2.0 Full HD series will adopt H.264.
When we talked about H.264, people maybe confused about that. What is H.264? What's the advantages of H.264?
Below is the basic information of H.264, we trust you'll be totally understand it after you read the content.
What is H.264？
H.264 or MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding) is a video coding format for recording and distributing full HD video and audio. It was developed and maintained by the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) with the ISO/IEC JTC1 Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).
Commonly used for the recording, compression, and distribution of video content, the H.264 format is a network-friendly video transmission method that delivers high-quality images without being a bandwidth hog.
What's the application of H.264 ?
The H.264 video compression format is perfect for AV distribution to one or more video sources (multicasting streams for many displays). Its use can be specially adequate for long-distance transmission of signals using existing wires and infrastructure. It is fast becoming the standard video compression format for the video surveillance world, for example.
It applications can range from outside broadcast (OB vans), energy sector, education, transportation drone video recording for environmental monitoring use as well as Video Wall Processing, Digital Signage Solutions and video conferencing.
What's the benefits of H.264?
Low bandwidth usage and higher resolution monitoring.
H.264 was created to provide high-quality transmission of full-motion video with lower bandwidth requirements and lower latency traditional video standards, such as MPEG-2. H.264 uses a very efficient codec that provides high-quality images and uses a minimal amount of bandwidth.
H.264 bitrate is lower than other formats
H.264 has an 80% lower bitrate than Motion JPEG video. It's estimated the bitrate savings can be as much as 50% or more compared to MPEG-2. For example, H.264 can provide a better image quality at the same compressed bit rate. At a lower bit rate, it provides the same image quality.
Reduced demands for video storage
H.264 uses significantly less storage to store video compared to other standards which proves to be essential to allow easy video transmission through IP
Vendor agnostic video extension solution
Because H.264 video is standards-based, it provides a vendor agnostic video extension solution. Users can mix and match H.264 equipment from different vendors without worry of any compatibility or proprietary issues.
