HEVC Advance, another patent licensing group, completely independent from MPEG LA, has announced its existence, but not its licensing fees. The uncertainty and potential costs may hinder acceptance of MPEG's next generation HEVC coding format, also known as h.265.

This is good news for Google, who has just released another RC for their VP9 codec and for Xiph.org, who are finalizing their Daala.

FUD or not, we are proud as ICCS/NTUA that we adopted VP8 as our internal X3D / streaming format.

All partners were happy and the project worked very well.
