    At the "Ninth Electronic Information Industry Standard Promotion Conference and China Information Technology Service Standard Annual Conference" guided by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Standardization Administration of China, the "Top Ten Events of Electronic Information Industry Standardization in 2016" were announced, and "the encoding efficiency of the ultra-high-definition standard AVS2 promulgated by China exceeding international standards" was selected: AVS2, China's second-generation digital video coding standard, was officially promulgated, and its coding efficiency is ahead of the latest international standards, marking that China's video technology and industry have officially entered the "double-ultra era" of "ultra-high definition" and "ultra-high efficiency". The full name of the standard is "Information Technology – High Efficiency Media Coding - Part 2: Video", and the standard number is GB/T 33475.2-2016. The standard specifies the decoding process of high-efficiency video compression method that adapts to a variety of bit rates, resolutions and quality requirements, and is suitable for various audio and video applications such as UHD TV and HD TV broadcasting. The AVS2 video coding efficiency is more than double that of the previous generation standard AVS+, and the compression efficiency exceeds the latest international standard HEVC (H.265). AVS2 also designs a scene coding mode for surveillance video, and its compression efficiency is twice that of HEVC (H.265), which is completely ahead of international standards. It supports the healthy development of China's video industry from the technical source, and supports Chinese video surveillance companies to occupy and dominate the international market.
