The ITU is asking the industry to devise a video compression standard to succeed HEVC (H.265).

Proposals for a new codec are being sought via the “Preliminary Joint Call for Evidence on Video Compression with Capability beyond HEVC” which asks for companies or organisations with suitable technology to get in touch with a Joint Video Exploration Team (JVET).

The group wants compression techniques that support camera-view and screen content, VR video and HDR for broadcast, on-demand viewing and storage-based media replay, among other things.

The deadline for expressions of interest is June.

Responses will be evaluated by JVET in July.
