New Video Standard - Solveig Multimedia presents 'Zond 265', the first professional H.265 Analyzer for Software Development worldwide
Two months ago, the new video standard 'High Efficiency Video Coding' (HEVC), currently better known as H.265, has been officially defined. It will become an international standard from July 2012 and will be applied as an approved new video standard from 2013. Middle of year 2013 most mobile video services and presumably the whole HD TV transmission will be based on the new H.265 standard.
Releasing 'Zond 265', Solveig Multimedia is the first to offer a market-ready HEVC/H.265 bit stream analyzer. The new software will help software engineers to develop H.265-compliant software and codecs in order to be able to present new H.265-compliant products in 2013.
Zond 265 - HEVC Analyzer home page
- Сompatible with reference software HM 6.2 r2238
- Frame navigation based on frames bars in decoding or display order
- Frames size histogram
- Color highlighting of different kind of frames (I, B, P).
- Marking of reference frames for a current picture
- Visual presentation of data from all levels of a video stream and decoding stages
- Showing all headers with a content.
- Showing Headers sizes and offsets within a stream
- Highlighting of a slice and related headers (SPS, PPS, etc.) of a current frame
- Showing pixels predicted, reconstructed, after deblocking and adaptive loop filtration
- Showing CU data: coordinates, dimension and bit-size
- Color highlighting different types of CUs (Inter, Intra)
- Showing PU data: a spatial prediction mode of intra PU luma and chroma components
- Showing inter PU’s motion vectors, reference lists, reference indexes.
- Showing TU data: dimension and offset within CU. Luma and chroma coefficients before de-quantization.
- Overlay a frame with a CU, PU or TU grid and motion vectors
- Showing bits distribution statistics to be used while encoding of CU, PU and TU data (skip_mb_flag, merge_flag, mvd, cbf_luma, etc.). Displaying results as a pie chart and table

Zond 256 version 1.1 is out
Features and Changes:
- HRD Buffer analyzing
- Frames navigation modes: decoding (stream) order; output (display) order; by K-Frames; I-Frames; I,P frames. Layout menu->”Navigation modes” button
- Slices bounds. Layout menu->” Slices Boundaries” button
- Map of bits for largest coding units. Menu->“Compression details”->”Bits”. The darker LCU is the lesser its size and vice versa.
- Reference indexes overlay. Menu->“Compression details”->”Bits”
- Additional coding units info: predicted motion vectors, merge candidates, difference of MV and PMV. Tab “CU”: P(x,y) of L0,L1 lists; merge_idx (order number in a candidate list); D(x,y) of L0,L1 lists, correspondingly.
- Combined transform partition grid for separate components - Y, Cb,Cr. Menu->”Prediction partitions” button
- Shows an opened file, list of recently opened files, copies a file name to a clipboard, opens an input folder. Upper left part of layout
- Timeline ruler in frames added
- Information panel with tabs became resizable
- Timeline and Information panels can be hidden maximizing picture preview
- Notices a version of the reference software Zond is compatible with. Upper right part of layout
- If unfold a header to be at the bottom of a bitstream list, it’s moved upwards to show its data
- Motion vectors get depicted more clearly
- Memory usage optimization
