The JPEG2000 coding scheme is slowly getting into use in imaging applications. The standard offers a set of new features and a better compression efficiency compared to the baseline JPEG. It requires, however, a high computational cost, making its usage in constrained devices, such as mobile phones or PDAs, challenging. We present a precompression rate allocation technique to reduce the encoding complexity and help adoption of JPEG2000 in such contexts.
JPEG2000 is the new ISO/IEC image compression standard. It is a full coding system targeted for various imaging applications. Besides offering the state-of-the-art in still image compression, it provides new features such as scalability in quality and in resolution, random access and region of interest (ROI) coding. Motion JPEG2000 is an inherited video compression standard based on intra-farme coding using JPEG2000. JPIP (the JPEG2000 Interactive Protocol), is a developing protocol for the access and transmission of JPEG2000 coded data and related metadata in a networked environment. In this paper, we present various applications of JPEG2000, Motion JPEG2000 and JPIP, geared specially towards the wireless mobile environment. We present an Image Surfing system for surfing JPEG2000 images on mobile terminals over a wireless network. We also present a scheme for tracking and coding Regions-Of-Interest (ROI) over a Motion JPEG2000 sequence. Finally, we present a Partial Coding scheme for use in Motion JPEG2000 sequences that gives coding gains for certain types of video sequences.
