H.264 is an open, licensed standard based on and supported by today’s most efficient video compression technologies. The H 264 encoder can reduce the digital video file size. It reduces more than 80% compared to MJPEG and 50% compared to MPEG-4 Part 2 without sacrificing image quality
This standard appeared back in 2013. It is capable of recording in HD format, and the processing speed is 7-8 megabytes per second. It was replaced by the H.264+ standard, which records in a similar format. While the stream speed is much higher – from 12 to 20 megabytes per second.
- Improvements that reduce the data transfer rate by an average of 50%, and offer a quality of still video image that is comparable to any other video standard.
- Error-resistance, which allows you to reproduce the image despite errors in the transmission of data over various networks.
- Low latency and get better quality with higher latency.
- A simple syntax structure that simplifies the implementation of the standard.
- Decoding based on exact match, which determines the exact number of number of calculations performed by the encoder and decoder, which avoids the appearance of accumulating errors
