announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd’s new report “The JPEG 2000
Suite” to their offering.
The JPEG 2000 Suite provides a comprehensive overview of the baseline JPEG 2000
standard and its extensions. The first part of the book sets out the core coding
system, additions to the standard and reference software. The second part
discusses the successful deployment of JPEG 2000 in application domains such as
video surveillance, digital cinema, digital television, medical imaging, defence
imaging, security, geographic imaging and remote sensing, digital culture
imaging and 3D graphics. The book also presents implementation strategies
accompanied by existing software and hardware solutions.
- Describes secure JPEG 2000 (JPSEC), interactivity protocols (JPIP), volumetric
image data compression (JP3D) and image compression in wireless environments
(JPWL), amongst others.
- Uses a structure which allows for easy cross-reference with the components of
- Sets out practical implementation examples and results.
- Examines strategies for future image compression techniques, including
Advanced Image Coding and JPEG XR.
- Includes contributions from international specialists in industry and academia
who have worked on the development of the JPEG 2000 standard.
The JPEG 2000 Suite is an excellent introduction to the JPEG 2000 standard and
is of great appeal to practising electronics engineers, researchers, and
hardware and software developers using and developing image coding techniques.
Graduate students taking courses on image compression, digital archiving, and
data storage techniques will also find the book useful, as will graphic
designers, artists, and decision makers in industries developing digital
