What is HEVC (H.265)
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) jointly developed by the ISO/IEC and ITU-T is a video compression format, a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). The H.265 codec has been around for a few years now but has only gradually been making its way into wide use.
Why convert your video like MKV to H.265
As a new codec technology and new video compression standard, H.265/HEVC can compress video files to the half size with the same video quality as the original. It can also improve the video quality at the same bit rate.
Considering superiority of the latest H.265 HEVC compression algorithms over the H.264 AVC, it’s a wise choice to encode MKV to H.265 MP4 saving hard drive space by compressing the video while saving the original quality.
