JPEG2000 SDK 2.8 release with the new High-Throughput JPEG2000

We are beyond happy to announce releasing JPEG2000 SDK with the new High Throughput JPEG2000 (HT-J2K). High-Throughput JPEG2000 is a new standard mode with major speedup and minor bitrate increase. It keeps all of the important previous JPEG 2000 features.

With all the codec features necessary for studio mastering, HT-J2K will become a dominant format for studio production workflows. The original JPEG2000 has already been adopted in many studio productions, and HT-J2K will dramatically speed up those processes, which is especially important in the world of 4K and 8K video. Compared to proprietary formats such as ProRes and DNxHD built around the same DCT-based methods as the old JPEG image compression, HT-J2K is based on a much more advanced discrete wavelet transform (DWT). And it is royalty-free and open standard and available to anybody.

HT-J2K is faster, has features such as resolution scalability, can quickly decode 2K low-res out of 8K master, allows for mathematically lossless compression, and has a better compression efficiency.

Comprimato JPEG 2000 SDK 2.8 brings HT-J2K for CPU coding while keeping all of the important functionalities:

 – encoding and decoding

 – precise rate control and mathematically lossless coding

 – interoperability with 3rd party JPEG 2000 codecs

 – single brief C89 API for all of the functionality

 – legacy coding mode still fully supported in the same build

 – more HT JPEG 2000 speedup and GPU coding support in following releases
