High Efficiency Video Coding – First time in India

Sun Direct is the first DTH service in India to offer High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). HEVC also known as H.265 provides up to 50% better bandwidth compared to the existing method.


Normally, high-definition video can take a lot of data. This HEVC codec will compress the video files to nearly half its original size in the most efficient manner and decode it to the screens without leaving out any details.  Usually in the normal HD box, the compressing and decoding process may lose out minute details causing the video to lag or stutter or blur.  Thus, HEVC offers to decode every minute details attributing to colour, size, noise level etc. HEVC will ensure that there will be no compromise on the quality of the streamed video.

HEVC can be adapted and optimized to provide high efficiency transport solutions for delivering/streaming high resolution videos.

Few benefits of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) for the consumers:

  • Comparative increase in spatial resolution up to 7680 x 4320
  • Offers better and wide range of colors
  • Maintains high quality video streaming irrespective of the screen size
  • No problem of lag or stutter during the video streaming
  • Improved noise level
  • Supports tiling while streaming, which allows multiple encoder instances to work on the same frame simultaneously
  • Enable more streams to support more viewing per location

These HEVC boxes are available only for 5 month and above HD connections.

Sun Direct – The First DTH in India with HEVC!!

The High Efficiency Video coding is a successor to the Advanced Video Coding (AVC) also known as H.264, this is also one of the compression scheme used by Blu-ray.

Now with Sun Direct DTH introducing  HEVC, they will offer the same level of picture quality as AVC, but with better compression in less data.

Do you want to know how it works?

There is a large amount of raw data that comes out of a professional HD camera. Transferring such massive data to home TV is not possible so, these videos are generally compressed and transferred to a much simpler and manageable form.  The idea is to reduce the massive amount of data to manageable form. Here we are dealing with better and smarter compression without compromising on the Quality of the video.

Sun Direct is the first DTH in India with HEVC!!

The HEVC box is exclusively available only for 5 months and above new HD connections.

Below is the list of other advantages for using the Sun Direct HEVC box:
