High Throughput JPEG 2000 Final Call for Proposals
August 5, 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 final call for proposals with the objective of seeking technologies that fulfil the objectives and scope of the HTJ2K activity is now available.
