Telestream Initiates Open Source x265/HEVC Project

-

Telestream announced the public availability of an open source H.265 (HEVC) encoder. The new x265 project is aimed at the creation of an efficient, high quality H.265 codec. Conceived by Telestream, the x265 project was co-founded and is being managed by the company’s development partner, MulticoreWare Inc. The H.265 initiative is being introduced under both an open source and commercial license model.

“Telestream and Multicoreware have had great success in the acceleration and commercial deployment of x264 and believe that a similar approach with the collaborative development of the next generation of high-efficiency codecs will benefit the industry,” said Shawn Carnahan, CTO at Telestream. “The x264 project proved the effectiveness of developing a codec of this complexity. Leveraging the x264 technology in this new project will ensure that the new codec is as robust, efficient and high quality as its predecessor.”

“Previous collaboration between Telestream and MulticoreWare led to successful work on the GPU acceleration of x264, a task deemed by many to be incredibly difficult, if not impossible,” said Jason Garrett-Glaser, lead developer of the x264 project. “With these accomplishments in mind, I am excited to support Telestream in the founding of the x265 project.”

Telestream will demonstrate HEVC transcoding at the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, Sept. 13-17 in stand 7.C12.
