This is nothing less than a totally essential reference for engineers and researchers in the fields of communication, image processing, signal processing, information theory, and multimedia.
It includes topics never before brought together in a single volume.
The book has specific applications for those involved in the development of software and hardware solutions for multimedia, internet, and medical imaging applications, and for those pursuing research in image and video compression.
It first provides a thorough and up-to-date background in the fundamentals of image compression.
It then moves on to offer a complete description of the JPEG2000 standard.
The third section of the book is devoted to the implementation and exploitation of the JPEG2000 standard, with guidelines, suggestions, and analyses for both software and hardware oriented applications.
The final part describes other key image compression standards, namely JPEG and JPEG-LS.
Included with the book is a CD-ROM that provides a complete C++ implementation of JPEG2000 Part 1.
