Zond 265 —
Hevc analyzer
First-to-market tool for visual in-depth analysis of
HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 video bitstreams
  • Frame size histogram and color highlighting of I,P,B frames. Marking of reference frames for the current picture
  • Easy frame-by-frame navigation
  • Comprehensive video supported: HEVC/H.265, AVC/H264 in VES, MPEG TS and MP4 (MPEG4 Part 12)
  • Granular visualization of all video stream levels and decoding stages
Mark Kogan, Senior Professional Video technology and compression Expert

I am an independent Video technology expert which is very well connected and known in the local and international Video technology market. I was looking for the solution that should serve me for longer terms. Zond 265 was one of many solutions that I have evaluated. I do like Zond 265 as it can show VBV, bitrate and video buffer analysis on GUI and get the reports via CLI. Zond analysis tool, provides a suitable and important information for advance + basic level video analysis with relatively great "user friendly" UI. It is also going to be recommended for all my professional colleagues in the video industry.

Maxim Sharabayko, Senior Video Codec Architect

I appreciate Zond 265 for its informative GUI and powerfull command-line features that allow me to export the required data into JSON format and do further processing. Zond 265 notifyes if there are values of the syntax elements that were coded not compliant to the standard, which serves well.

Features
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Detection and Analysis

Frame-by-frame parsing and interpretation of SEI units into discrete Frame Information.

Hypothetic Reference Decoder (HRD) Buffer Flow

Instant insights into buffer occupancy — available from the interface and through CLI reports.

Comprehensive File Info in a Single Source

including profile, level, chroma subsampling, bit depth, resolution, aspect ratio, bitrate, frame rate, HDR information, compression efficiency, and GOP length statistics.

Bitrate Histogram

Bitrate peak values update every second in the course of consecutive frame reading.

Maintenance: Zond 265 PC covered by the maintenance license for 1 year upon the product purchase

PC license

The license is valid and locked to a single computer or for one user if it is used as floating license.

It allows installing Zond on any number of PCs and use it simultaneously with as many users as licenses were purchased.

Floating License

The license lives and managed by a license server that must be run in the same intranet network as the client PCs, on which the software is used.

It allows installing the software on an unlimited number of PCs but limits the simultaneous usage on different PCs/users, i.e. only one computer can use a license at a time.

The number of concurrent users may not exceed the number of licenses purchased.

Update and Upgrade policy

Customers are entitled to minor and major version updates and upgrades free of charge — within one year after purchase.

After the 1-year period expires, you can get access to updates and upgrades by purchasing a maintenance license.

You may request to re-host a personal- or floating license to a different computer once a year free of charge upon the valid maintanence. If you want to re-host a license within one year after the last re-host, a re-host fee will be charged.

Please refer to the EULAC for more information.
