Master thesis: Data reduction with the AV1 video codec compared to H.265

This work in cooperation with the ORF deals with the codec of the future for the ORF TVthek. Currently, H.264 is also used here for 4K UHD transmissions. In order to save both costs and transmitted data, the successor H.265 is being evaluated and compared with the AV1 codec for use in the TVthek. While H.265 is already under discussion at ORF, AV1 has not yet been brought into focus.
