NTT Docomo demonstrates HEVC (H.265)
NTT Docomo has demonstrated HEVC, also known as H.265, a new international video compression standard. HEVC is the next generation after H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, currently in widespread use.
Docomo's own specification, to enable use for mobile applications, has been adopted by ITU and ISO. The telecom operator also suggested ways to improve aspects such as compression performance. In March, it started licensing HEVC codec software for Full HD on smartphones. Source: DigInfo.TV
