Nowadays, lots of people have NAS (Network Attached Storage) at home, on which they can save all their important data’s, including multimedia sources for entertainments. So, they can also backup their Blu-ray and DVD movies onto NAS to keep budgets down on buying blank Blu-ray discs. But now, there’s a better standard out there that offers excellent quality at even smaller file sizes. That is to rip your Blu-ray/DVD ISO images to HEVC, aka H.265, or MPEG-H Part 2.

Ripping your Blu-ray/DVD to H.265 for storing on NAS can make you save NAS storage space and get more media playback choice comparing to Blu-ra/DVD to ISO rip. On the other hand, the reason that we don’t choose to rip Blu-ray/DVD to H.264 is that HEVC’s main advantage over H.264 is that it offers roughly double the compression ratio for the same quality. This means that a video file encoded with HEVC can occupy half the space of its H.264 equivalent with no noticeable change in quality, or the same amount of space with improved quality. 

So how to rip Blu-ray/DVD to H.265/HEVC video files? With a Blu-ray to H.265 Ripper, you can easily get it. There are many Blu-ray Rippers or DVD ripper on the market can export H.265 video from Blu-ray/DVD ISO images like MakeMKV, Leweo Blu-ray Ripper, DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper, etc. But x265 is very CPU heavy to encode. If your Blu-ray ripping tool doesn’t support H.265 CUDA GPU acceleration, the work of Blu-ray/DVD ISO to H.265 ripping will be a time-consuming thing.

Fortunately, the leader of multimedia software application Pavtube Studio has upgraded its top-ranked Pavtube ByteCopy  to version supporting the most advanced hardware acceleration NVIDIA CUDA & AMD APP by both H.264 and H.265 codec, which can give users 30x Blu-ray ripping speed than before.  Learn more Pavtube ByteCopy Upgraded Supporting H.265 NVIDIA CUDA Acceleration. So, if you happen to have a Maxwell-based Nvidia graphics card from the GeForce 900 series or later, you can utilize your GPU’s dedicated HEVC encoding block to transcode Blu-ray/DVD ISO files into HEVC significantly faster than before by using ByteCopy.
