The Berlin Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute has the finalization of video coding standard H.266 ALIAS VERSATILE VIDEO CODING (VVC) announced. He follows H.265 ALIAS HIGH EFFICIENCY VIDEO CODING and compressed data a maximum of twice as strong with constant visual quality. A 90-minute film in Ultra-HD resolution with 3840 × 2160 pixels, according to the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, take only 5 instead of 10 GB of storage space.

In the coming autumn 2020, the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute wants to provide software de- and coders running on processor cores. Pre-versions of the HEVC successor showed developers already at the IFA 2019. First chips, the H.266 accelerate, according to press release in development. De- and encoders are part of the graphics unit of system-on-chips and defined graphics chips. However, until such a full circumferential with new video coding standards can be done, but usually pass years.
The Joint Video Experts Team of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) want licenses for H.266 or VVC under Frand Requirements Sell: "Fair, Reasonable and Non Discriminatory". For this purpose, the responsible persons have launched the Media Coding Industry Forum (MC-IF). Details about the costs are not called like ubrow.
