H.264 has seven profiles (sets of algorithmic features), each of which targets a specific set of applications. Each defines what feature set the encoder may use and limits the complexity of the decoder implementation. The profiles are categorized as baseline, main and high profile. They range from baseline, which is primarily for low-cost applications and often is used in videoconferencing, up to High 4:4:4 Predictive Profile.
In addition to the surveillance issues, other applications, such as online video storage and telecommunications companies are beginning to adopt the versatile H.264.
