Paper Abstract

The Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) committee is a joint working group of the International Standardization Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The word "Joint" in JPEG however does not refer to the joint efforts of ISO and IEC, but to the fact that the JPEG activities are the result of an additional collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Inspired by technology and market evolutions, i.e. the advent of wavelet technology and need for additional functionality such as scalability, the JPEG committee launched in 1997 a new standardization process that would result in 2000 in a new standard: JPEG 2000. JPEG 2000 is a collection of standard parts, which together shape the complete toolset. Currently, the JPEG 2000 standard is composed out of 13 parts. In this paper, we review these parts and additionally address recent standardization initiatives within the JPEG committee such as JPSearch, JPEG-XR and AIC.
