x265 Development - An Open Source HEVC / H.265

Hopefully x265 will like x264, which has been the best open source implementation of H.264. One of x264 pioneers, Min Chen, started the x265 project to push open source development for HEVC / H.265. His goal targets for embedded system, FPGA, GPU, and multi-cores system. We are looking forward to it. 

HEVC or H.265 (nickname) is targeted at next-generation HDTV displays and content capture systems which feature progressive scanned frame rates and display resolutions from QVGA (320x240) up to 1080p and Ultra HDTV (7680x4320), as well as improved picture quality in terms of noise level, color gamut and dynamic range. The performance goal is that HEVC should provide 2x better video compression performance than AVC (H.264) high profile, at the expense of increased computational complexity (so hardware implementations would be important). HEVC will significantly reduce bandwidth requirements  with comparable image quality  for video conferencing and streaming.
