What is xvc?
The xvc codec is a new video codec, released in its first version in September 2017. The codec is a modern and flexible software-defined video compression format which includes a reference encoder and a reference decoder. The xvc codec is primarily based on compression tools that originates from MPEG standards such as AVC/H.264 and HEVC, but it also includes technology that goes beyond those standards, enabling a high level of compression performance at reasonable encoding and decoding complexity.
