Vantrix Launches f265.org for Open Source HEVC Encoder

Free Source Code Available for Collaboration on H.265 Implementations

LOS ANGELES, CA and MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- (The Cable Show 2014) -- Vantrix, a global provider of high performance media delivery solutions to service and content providers, today officially launched their open source HEVC project website, f265.org. The company will showcase their HEVC encoder during The Cable Show 2014 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California, which opens tomorrow and runs through May 1.

The f265 project was previously announced as an open source version of the H.265 encoder, also known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). The project aims to accelerate the industry-wide development and adoption of H.265 through a collaborative and free open source model. The project website is now officially available for researchers and commercial entities to obtain the source code and contribute to the refinement and evolution of the code to accelerate the implementation of both software and hardware systems.

Vantrix's f265 encoder will be licensed under the OSI BSD terms, enabling access to source code, free redistribution, and derived works. The project will target both high quality offline and real-time encoding.

"The f265.org site is maintained by and for developers to help accelerate the development and adoption of HEVC," noted Francis Labonte, Vantrix research lab director. "We have a working baseline version available that we've been demonstrating for UHD/4k live streaming and now want to take the real-time performance and feature set to the next level. We're hoping to contribute to accelerating the industry transition from H.264 to H.265 and solving network bandwidth issues for high definition video."

The f265 project website is available at www.f265.org.

Visitors to The Cable Show 2014 can come to booth #2454 during exhibition hours to view a demo of the Vantrix HEVC encoder.
