This paper examines the performance of video transmission over 4G networks, which are witnessing a surge in demand. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) also known as H.265 and MPEG-H Part 2, is a draft video compression standard, a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), currently under joint development by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG). MPEG and VCEG have established a Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) to develop the HEVC standard. The main motivation behind the HEVC is to improve video quality and double the data compression ratio compared to H.264. Wi-Max is engineered to cover Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN), aiming for a range of approximately 50 kilometres with speeds exceeding 1 Gbps, accommodating a large number of users. It is required to support HD quality video and other data traffic simultaneously for all users. Therefore, video compression is essential to deliver HD quality video at lower data rates. This paper concentrates on transmitting high-quality video over 4G networks while minimizing data rates. Wi-Max is design to serve over MAN, targeting approximately 50KM range with the approximately speed more than 1 Gbps with large number of users. It must support the HD quality video and all other data traffic at the same time to all users. Hence, the video must be compressed in such a way that HD quality video should be passed at lower data rate. This paper is focused on transmitting high quality video over the 4G Network with low data rate.
