JPEG 2000 Image Coding Standard - A Review and Applications

  • Ryszard S. Choraś
Conference paper


The Joint Photographic Experts Group has recently created a new image coding standard called JPEG 2000, which is to be used in various multimedia applications. JPEG 2000 standard integrates such features as good quality at lossless and lossy compression, embedded lossy to lossless coding, progressive transmission by pixel accuracy and by resolution, robustness to the presence of bit - errors and ROI - region of interest coding which has not been presented in existing compression algorithms so far.
