The High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), or officially named H.265/HEVC video encoding standard, as its predecessor, the H.264/AVC standard, was also developed by the joint efforts of the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group standardization groups. Taking into consideration the growing popularity of UHD resolution video contents, the developers set their goal to be the significant improvement of compression performance for high resolution, HD and UHD video contents, while providing the same level of quality and also maintaining a reasonable computational complexity.

The purpose of my thesis is to present the technical features of HEVC, to review studies and their results examining the compression characteristics of the encoder, and to evaluate its compression efficiency through various tests, using objective quality metrics. I will use 4K and HD resolution videos and I will compare my results to the results achieved by using H.264 encoding with similar parameters.
