High Throughput JPEG 2000 Draft Call for Proposals
April 10, 2017

The JPEG Committee has launched the High Throughput JPEG 2000 (HTJ2K) activity, which aims to develop an alternate block coding algorithm that can be used in place of the existing block coding algorithm specified in ISO/IEC 15444-1 (JPEG 2000 Part 1). The objective is to increase throughput of JPEG 2000 while otherwise maintaining its unique combination of features, including minimizing the impact of changes on existing codestream syntax and structure, implementations, workflows and content libraries. The output of HTJ2K activity is intended to be published as Part 15 of the JPEG 2000 family of specifications (ISO/IEC 15444).

The JPEG Committee intends to publish a final Call for Proposals (CfP) following its 76th meeting (17-21 July 2017), with the objective of seeking technologies that fulfil the objectives and scope of the HTJ2K activity.

A draft of the CfP is offered for a public review period ending 1 July 2017.
