<div dir="auto">I think Apple is somehow "attached" to the MPEG group. They control the "pools" too. Your codec sounds great. Google could -- if they wanted to -- use it but they have Web^M and webP. Look to Asia. Asus has just launched a new phone. ??</div><br><div class="gmail_quote"><div dir="ltr">On Mon, Jul 9, 2018, 3:14 PM Raphael Canut <<a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>> wrote:<br></div><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"><div dir="ltr"><div>Hello,</div><div><br></div><div>I don't have advanced on the NHW Project this past month, but I have definitely validated its characteristics and this new version.<br></div><div><br></div><div>The NHW Codec preserves or enhances image neatness and sharpness, which translates that on good quality images the NHW Codec is globally better than HEVC, and on degraded (with blur, artifacts) images it is worse than HEVC because it lacks of precision.
