Initial work on JPEG2000 started in 1997, when a call for proposals was issued by the JPEG committee to create a new standard to ‘‘address areas where current standards failed to produce the best quality or performance,’’ ‘‘provide capabilities to markets that currently do not use compression,’’ and ‘‘provide an open system approach to imaging applications.’’ The ISO committee approved part 1 of JPEG2000 as an International Standard in December 2000. Considering the rich set of functionalities provided by JPEG2000, and the central role that compression plays in modern visual communications and storage, this successor to the highly acclaimed JPEG standard is expected to appear soon in a diverse set of existing and emerging applications.
