Author: Brian Karas, Published on Dec 14, 2016

Hype for H.265 has been growing, but Milestone is recommending restraint, despite supporting H.265.

In this note, we examine Milestone's position on H.265, and what the company says is holding back H.265 adoption, contrasting it to recent moves by Dahua and Hikvision.
