x266 VVC Encoder

Development is already underway:

MulticoreWare announces the formation of x266 consortium and development of an open source code for VVC encoding is already underway. Similarly, MulticoreWare’s x265 consortium led the development of the open source code x265 for HEVC based encoding and become the mmost widely used HEVC encoding software.

Application areas of x266 will include encoding High Definition(HD) and Ultra High Definition(UHD- 4K and 8K) video for broadcasting, live streaming, Over The Top(OTT) video distribution, Adaptive Bit Rate(ABR) streaming, video storage and archiving, surveillance, screen content sharing, video teleconferencing, video games, eSports, immersive media such as 360-degree video, Virtual Reality (VR) etc.

x266 will be able to encode video with Standard, High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut. It will also offer a user flexibility to trade-off speed of encoding with coding efficiency. Initial version of the x266 software will support single layer coding of 10 bits video with 4:2:0 chroma format. More advanced versions will support multilayer coding, higher than 10 bits depth video and higher than 4:2:0 chroma formats.
