HEVC and Broadcast Content

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new video compression format that effectively doubles the data compression rate compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality.
HEVC will be used first in applications where bandwidth is a problem today, where the client device can easily be updated to support HEVC, either because it is a device that users replace frequently, such as smartphones, or because it is flexible to support HEVC. Contribution applications will come later, and require more robust complex implementations of the standard than what can be offered by compression vendors at this time.HEVC has been found to be a very efficient codec for all content types including interlaced content; if you think otherwise, this paper will help you understand where the misconception that HEVC is only for progressive was initiated.
