ICTip #2: Getting More with Less from your Video Surveillance
Video compression technology is a crucial factor in a surveillance system. Two of the most popular are H.264 and H.265. Developed in the late nineties, H.264 is still one of the most widely used formats for recording. H.265, also known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is slowly dominating the IP video encoding technology with its capacity to double the compression ratio at the same level of video quality. But what’s next for H.265?
What are the benefits of H.265+?
Hikvision’s H.265+ dramatically improves encoding efficiency: reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 75% compared to H.264, and taking up half as much storage space for the same amount of video footage. Bitrates are reduced but transmission quality remains high. H.265+ is a major step forward in video compression, and means significant storage cost savings for users.

The ICT Month is celebrated every month of June, a celebration commenced since 2008. This is in accordance to Proclamation No. 1521 (series of 2008), which declares that “THE MONTH OF JUNE 2008 AND EVERY YEAR THEREAFTER AS “NATIONAL INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY (ICT)” MONTH”. The conduct of this event is to recognize the contributions of the ICT as one of the major sectors for economic growth and, as such, has resolved to fully implement a national ICT program that shall optimize the utilization of ICT.
