Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the current status of the JPWL standardization work item. JPWL is an extension of the JPEG 2000 baseline specification in order to enable the efficient transmission of JPEG 2000 codestream over an error-prone network. In particular, JPWL supports a set of tools and methods for error protection and correction such as Forward Error Correcting (FEC) codes, Unequal Error Protection (UEP), and data partitioning and interleaving. We then evaluate the performance of the JPWL Error Protection Block (EPB) tool. We consider two configurations of EPB: to protect the Main and Tile-part headers, or to protect the whole codestream using UEP. Experimental results show a significant quality improvement when using EPB compared to baseline JPEG 2000.
