Arecont To Release Industries' Best H.265 Support

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 30, 2016

Go big, or go home. That seems to be Arecont's philosophy for H.265, they say they are working on the "best" H.265 implementation in the market.

In this report, we examine:

  • Arecont's success being first to market with H.264 MP
  • Arecont's limited adoption of smart H.264
  • H.265 camera comparisons
  • Arecont's in-house design vs off-the-shelf chips
  • Arecont's odds on H.265

Let's get the obligatory jokes out of the way:

This will be the industry's lowest bit rate, upside down, purple hued image you have ever seen.

Seriously though, I have to believe those issues have been long since rectified.

I wouldn't take that bet based on recent calls with an integrator friend of mine. It will be a better codec on an upside down, purple, stuck camera with no reset button though.
