Sony’s next codec is “XEVC” – could blow the doors off the industry with 8K RAW at 240Mbit

Comment on the forum

Sony is working on a new codec to replace XAVC, which is based on the older H.264 compression standard.

The new codec is called XEVC according to leaks, based around H.265 (HEVC) Version 2. This supports Bayer RAW encoding, 8K and 12bit 4K at data rates efficient enough for almost any media, even current SD cards.
