H.265 Decoding Framework
The latest HEVC or H.265 text specification draft 6 can be downloaded from the link. It includes a single profile, Main, which is similar to the Progressive High profile in H.264 AVC. The draft standard contains provisions for future extensions similar to Scalable Video Coding and Multiview Video Coding defined in H.264 AVC.
The corresponding RTP Payload Format draft for HEVC or H.265 defines an RTP payload format which allows for packetization of one or more Network Abstraction Layer (NAL) units in each RTP packet payload, as well as fragmentation of a NAL unit into multiple RTP packets. Furthermore, it supports transmission of an HEVC stream over a single as well as multiple RTP flows. The payload format has wide applicability in videoconferencing, Internet video streaming, and high bit-rate entertainment-quality video, among others. It is similar to the H.264 Payload Format, referred to be RFC3984.
The latest HEVC reference software version is HM-6.0rc1.
