Can AV1 and HEVC just get along?

..... But because AV1's performance increased as video resolution increased, we conclude the new compression codec will likely deliver even higher efficiency gains with UHD/4K and 8K content,” Facebook Software Engineer Yu Liu wrote in a blog post. During the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Matt Frost, head of strategy and partnerships for Google Chrome Media and founding board member of AOMedia, it’s too early to predict what the average stream size will be for AV1 videos, but he revealed that during the AV1 launch party, AOMedia members were able to show a 720p video on a Samsung mobile device and have it only use 207 kilobits.
