How to Use Nvidia GeForce Graphic Card to Encode H.265 with 30X Speed

More and more people prefer to encode media to H.265/HEVC codec, why? High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), or H.265, is a video compression standard designed to substantially improve coding efficiency when compared to its precedent, the Advanced Video Coding (AVC), or H.264. With an increasing growth of video streaming on the Internet over popular websites such as Netflix and YouTube, and with 4K cameras gaining new ground in the market, a considerable amount of storage and bandwidth is required. HEVC promises a 50% storage reduction as its algorithm uses efficient coding by encoding video at the lowest possible bit rate while maintaining a high image quality level. In the current market, more and more devices add support for playing HEVC videos, like iPhone X, Apple TV 4K and more.

You will find that H.265 codec encoding time is much longer than other codes especially when you are using a old dual-core desktop to do the encoding work. In the current market, there are dozens of video converter programs that support hardware acceleration techs for encoding HEVC, but few of them can really satisfy you. Fortunately, I will share the best one with you which allows you to speed up H.265 encoding speed to 30x. Can't wait? Here we go.

Get the Top UHD 4K Blu-ray Converter to Copy UHD Blu-ray Discs

Ultra HD 4K Blu-rays have the best picture quality possible for your 4K TV, even better than streaming 4K from Netflix or Amazon. Even better, many discs have high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) content, which provide a much more noticeable improvement than 4K resolution, provided your TV can deliver it.

What do you need to watch a UHD Blu-ray

Sadly, Ultra HD discs won't play on a normal Blu-ray player, though you can play older Blu-ray discs on an Ultra HD player. In order to get a true 4K experience, remember that you'll need an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, an Ultra HD TV and some discs, obviously. There are a few important caveats, though.

First, you'll need to make sure your TV supports at least the HDMI 2.0 standard. Most TVs from the last year or so will, but very cheap models and some models from 2014 or earlier might not. Check your manual or Google the model number to find out - the even newer HDMI 2.1 standard should also be fine.

If you don't have a 4K TV, your 4K Blu-ray player will still work, but it will only display images in 1080p. Buy a regular Blu-ray instead of a 4K version and it will still play in 3840 X 2160 resolution, but it won't be a native 4K image and will be noticeably different than had you used an Ultra HD Blu-ray.

There's no denying Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K TVs are luxuries, but they're luxuries worth having. And if you want the absolute best possible picture from your 4K TV, Ultra HD Blu-ray is where you'll find it.

"But I hate physical discs," you say. I hear you. But for people who want peak image quality, a disc is still one way to go. What if you have no 4K Blu-ray Player or have no plan to buy one? The other way is to use a Blu-ray ripping tool to rip/convert 4K UHD Blu-ray to digital files for streaming to 4K TV without needing a 4K Blu-ray player.
