GoPro turns to HEVC compression for Hero 6 Black, same codec used by Apple in iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra

 Briefly mentioned during Thursday’s GoPro launch event, the new Hero 6 Black with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), GP1 chip or chips may refer to compresses ultra high-resolution video is an electronic medium for the recording, copying, playback, broadcasting, and display of moving visual media into manageable chunks of data using High Efficiency Video Coding, the same standard adopted by Apple in its latest operating systems.

According to GoPro, the company’s decision to build in support for HEVC, also known as H.265, came well before Apple apple tree (Malus pumila, commonly and erroneously called Malus domestica) is a deciduous tree in the rose family best known for its sweet, pomaceous fruit, the apple announced it, too, was throwing weight behind the next-generation standard.

Announced at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, Apple initially promised HEVC support for macOS High may refer to Sierra, including hardware acceleration on select Mac models including the late-2015 27-inch iMac, early-2016 MacBook MacBook is a brand of notebook computers manufactured by Apple Inc. from May 2006 to February 2012, and relaunched in 2015 and MacBook Pro models modeling or modelling may refer to: Conceptual model, a representation of a system using general rules and concepts Physical model or plastic model, a physical representation in three dimensions of manufactured in 2016 and beyond. The company later confirmed iOS 11 would bring the codec codec is a device or computer program for encoding or decoding a digital data stream or signal to compatible mobile devices.

For GoPro, the decision to incorporate H.265 support may refer to: Support (structure), architectural components that include arches, beams, columns, balconies, and stretchers Lateral support (disambiguation) Life support, in medicine Technical is in response to new high bitrate shooting modes added to 6 Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light‘s arsenal. Video shot in 4K at 60fps or 2.7K at 120fps, for example, generate unamanageable files or filing may refer to in H.264, so the firm sought a more efficient alternative.

In our early testing, we found HEVC to be incredibly effective. A 12-second clip shot in 4K at 60fps with a “wide” aspect ratio came in at 99 MB, while “” is a word in the English language that functions both as a noun and as a subordinating conjunction a clip of equal length shot may refer to: Shot (filmmaking), a part of a film between two cuts Shot (medicine), an injection Shot silk, a type of silk Showt or Shoţ, a city in Iran Line length, a fifteen fathom length of in 2.7K at 60fps — a carryover resolution from Hero 5 Black, encoded in H.264 — weighed in at 96MB.

Looking at the nuts and bolts behind GoPro’s HEVC implementation, the 6 Black and accompanying GoPro app default to the device device is usually a constructed tulil‘s base video encoding communications and information processing, code is a system of rules to convert information—such as a letter, word, sound, image, or gesture—into another form or representation, sometimes shortened scheme when transferring files over to a smartphone. For iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc users, that means large HEVC files are supported natively — no transcoding is involved.

Native support equates to decreased file sizes — up to 40 percent smaller than H.264 — smooth playback and higher quality images. Also important for action may refer to cam enthusiasts is enhanced motion compensation for fast-moving scenes, a feature that comes in handy when recording at 6 Black’s maximum 4K resolution at 60fps.

GoPro representatives we spoke with said iPhone 8 (and likely iPhone X, though that handset has yet to see release) is the pinnacle of HEVC viewing thanks to Apple’s A11 Bionic system-on-chip. Like the English language, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard contemporary desktop silicon, such as sixth-generation Intel Core processors powering recent Macs, the A11 Bionic integrates hardware acceleration for H.265 encoding and decoding operations.

The A10 Fusion chip in iPhone 7 also integrates a flavor of HEVC hardware acceleration in physics, is the rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to time, while A9 SoCs and below rely on software to get the job done. That doesn’t mean mathematics, mean has several different definitions depending on the context an iPhone 6s will struggle with HEVC video pulled from a Hero hero (masculine) or heroine (feminine) is a person or main character of a literary work who, in the face of danger, combats adversity through impressive feats of ingenuity, bravery or strength, 6 Black, but content might take longer to process and render.

Looking ahead, GoPro is likely to expand HEVC integration in future products may refer to, especially now that major industry entities like Apple are throwing weight behind may refer to: Behind (album), a 1992 album by Superior Behind (Australian rules football), a method of scoring in Australian rules football, awarding one point “Behind” (song), a 2008 single by the codec.

Interestingly, GoPro’s upcoming Fusion or synthesis, the process of combining two or more distinct entities into a new whole, may refer to, a dual-lens device capable of 5.2K spherical video capture, does may refer to: An adult female in some animal species such as deer and goat; see List of animal names Doe people, a people of coastal Tanzania Doe language, spoken by the Doe people not rely on HEVC to compress its expectedly large files. Instead, that device uses the current H.264 standard may refer to, just like the Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session. A probable explanation is that Fusion does not GP1, suggesting

With its in-house designed GP1 chip, introduced alongside Hero 6 Black, GoPro has a distinct advantage over may refer to other action camera makers seeking to include dedicated hardware may refer to: Household hardware, equipment such as keys, locks, hinges, latches, handles, wire, chains, plumbing, tools, utensils, and machine parts, typically sold in hardware stores Builders acceleration for the codec in their respective products. </span>
