The next video encoding standard is under development, so candidate names have been placed on the table for discussion.
More specifically, the finalists are:
- HVC – High-efficiency Video Coding (Note: not High-performance Video Coding? I prefer the latter)
- EPVC – Enhanced Performance Video Coding
- HEVC – High Efficiency Video Coding
- HCEV – High Coding Efficiency Video
Based on this list, an online poll has been set up at Doodle [Poll: Name of new MPEG/VCEG Standard].
Currently HVC seems to be the winner.
