Next-Generation Image Compression (JPEG XL) Final Call for Proposals
April 23, 2018

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-1), along with features desirable for web distribution and efficient compression of high-quality images.

The Next-Generation Image Compression activity has produced a final Call for Proposals, available in this document.
