Next-Generation Image Compression (JPEG XL) Draft Call for Proposals
November 7, 2017

The JPEG Committee has launched the Next-Generation Image Compression activity, also referred to as JPEG XL. This activity aims to develop a standard for image compression that offers substantially better compression efficiency than existing image formats (e.g. >60% over JPEG), along with features desirable for web distribution and efficient compression of high-quality images.

The JPEG Committee intends to publish a final Call for Proposals (CfP) following its 78th meeting (January 2018), with the objective of seeking technologies that fulfil the objectives and scope of the Next-Generation Image Compression activity.

A draft Call for Proposals, with all related info, can be found in this document. Comments are welcome and should be submitted as specified in the document.
