      Investigate HEVC/H.265 encoding using free chapter

      June 28, 2017, 5:19 am
      Apple have decided to stadardise on HEVC/H.265 video encoding in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11. Jan Ozer has written a book about how to encode video using the free FFmpeg encoding system. He has made the chapter on HEVC encoding from the book free to download: Below you can download a sample chapter of my new book, Learn to Produce Video with FFmpeg in 30 Minutes or Less. It’s Chapter 12 Encoding HEVC If you have already installed FFmpeg (which includes the libx265 encoder), visit ...

      Apple’s HEVC choice: Codec battle 2018?

      June 21, 2017, 9:39 am
      What does Apple’s choice of HEVC (H.265) mean for developers, users, viewers and streamers? Jan Ozer writes that it will take a year a so to find out. His predictions include: No major publishers implement HEVC/HLS support before 3-6 months after iOS 11/MacOS Sierra ship. This leaves the door open for a full codec analysis between AV1 and HEVC, including encode and decode requirements, hardware support, cost, IP risk, HDR support, software support, the whole nine yards. At least in the...

      HDR production: Five concepts, 10 principles

      June 20, 2017, 6:09 am
      It is likely that the next major versions of common NLEs will support HDR. As editors we will be asked about the right HDR workflow. For now it is a matter of picking a standard, following some guidelines and maintaining metadata. Jan Ozer writes: HDR sounds complex, and at a technical level it is. Abstractly, however, it involves just five simple concepts. First, to acquire the expanded brightness and color palette needed for HDR display, you have to capture and maintain your video in ...

      BBC R&D’s IP Studio: Live production of big TV e

      June 7, 2017, 9:30 am
      Interested in cloud-based high end post production? Live events and TV shows need live production. A post on the BBC R&D blog explains the challenges of making a system that can do live TV production in a web browser. They are basing their research on a system ‘IP Studio’: …a platform for discovering, connecting and transforming video streams in a generic way, using IP networking – the standard on which pretty much all Internet, office and home networks are based. No buffering...

      Notes on Apple HEVC and HEIF from WWDC17

      June 6, 2017, 7:20 pm
      Apple are standardising on the next generation HEVC codec for video and image encoding, decoding and playback. HEVC (H.265) is a much better codec for dealing with video resolutions greater than HD. Here are my notes from Apple’s  2017 Worldwide Developers Conference sessions so far this week. Here’s what Apple said about HEIF in the Platforms State of the Union address (from 1:08:07): We've also selected a new image container called HEIF… HEIF supports the concept of compound ...

      Apple courts high-end post production with macOS H

      June 5, 2017, 4:52 pm
      Today’s Apple’s Mac announcements were prefaced by saying that the next version of macOS will not be about adding new features, but about improving current and adding new underlying technologies for future versions. Despite that, their software and hardware announcements seemed to be going after high-end media producers.  The new version of macOS (High Sierra) will include support for H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding) support. This produces the same HD quality at 40% of the data rat...

      VR, Final Cut Pro X and Apple WWDC17

      June 5, 2017, 11:57 am
      This week at their Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, Apple are making announcements about future products and services. They are also giving presentations for developers about macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS. Over the week I’m hoping to see updates relevant to VR and Final Cut Pro X at WWDC17. VR To mix reality (make it seem that graphics is interacting with the real world) it is useful to be able to record the distance of objects from the camera. This means graphics can be seen...
