H.265, or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), is a new video coding standard that specifies how to encode video. It is the successor to Advanced Video Coding (AVC), also known as H.264.
It was developed with the goal of providing twice the compression efficiency of the previous standard, H.265 meaning you can send higher resolutions such as 4K or UHD with a lower bit rate. Equally, the bit rate is reduced for lower resolution also. As with any more advanced / newer technology this comes at a price. H265 is ideal for very low bit rate applications such as mobile phone viewing, or at the other end, very high resolution viewing like 4K UHD and above.
H.265 video encoders are usually more expensive due to the technology involved. This codec is often specified or required in broadcast environments, where compression efficiency is key. CCTV have adopted H265, but the vast majority of IP cameras and Encoders are still H264 based for ONVIF compatibility.
