The High Efficiency Video Coding specification, formally published as both ITU-T Recommendation H.265 [HEVC] and ISO/IEC International Standard 23008-2 [ISO23008-2], was ratified by the ITU-T in April 2013; reportedly, it provides significant coding efficiency gains over H.264 [H.264].

RTP Payload Format for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)
This memo describes an RTP payload format for the video coding standard ITU-T Recommendation H.265 and ISO/IEC International Standard 23008-2, both also known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC). The RTP payload format allows for packetization of one or more Network Abstraction Layer (NAL) units in each RTP packet payload as well as fragmentation of a NAL unit into multiple RTP packets. Furthermore, it supports transmission of an HEVC bitstream over a single stream as well as multiple RTP streams. When multiple RTP streams are used, a single transport or multiple transports may be utilized. The payload format has wide applicability in videoconferencing, Internet video streaming, and high-bitrate entertainment-quality video, among others.
