With H.264 ubiquitous and HEVC moving into deployment, particularly for UHD, do we really need AV1? Questions persist relating to the various, differing, published results of comparisons between HEVC and AV1 performance and complexity not to mention the question of timetables to real-world deployments. This session will discuss the costs to the industry of supporting additional codecs, the benefits that should be weighed against these costs, and uncover the facts and provide a prediction of what the future holds for video codecs in the streaming industry.
