HEVC, short for High Efficiency Video Coding, is for encoding and decoding video streams so they can be stored or transmitted more economically than today's dominant H.264, aka AVC or Advanced Video Coding. Specifically, HEVC allies say it can deliver the same quality video as H.264 with half the network bandwidth.

basically what I understood is, this new codec will enable higher compression (high quality with small file size) than Advance Video Codec AVC/AAC
if I'm not mistaken, AVC/AAC wasnt generally used in fansub community until few years ago since introduced in 2003
does this new codec will have any effect or will be useful in spreading drama faster to the community?
p/s: sorry I'm not a technical geek, just found this news interesting to discuss
