The Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) recently published a draft of a new video compression standard that it says is twice as efficient as the standard used today. The new standard is called High Efficiency Video Coding, or H.265. Video content encoded with H.265 would require half as much bandwidth as content encoded with the H.264 standard, which is widely used today. Ericsson Research visual technology lead Per Frojdh believes the technology could be available in mobile devices as soon as 2013. It's not clear when the draft of the standard might be finalized and/or implemented. Frojdh's group is also working on new techniques for compression 3D content that could be played back without requiring 3D glasses. Frojdh believes the 3D compression standard could be ready by 2014.

The most interesting thing about this article..

.. is the name Fröjdh

I think I may have injured my face trying to pronounce it properly.
