LEADTOOLS JPEG 2000 Image Compression SDK

JPEG 2000 Image Compression

LEADTOOLS JPEG 2000 compression/decompression conforms to the JPEG 2000 International Standard. This state-of-the-art ISO/ITU still image compression standard provides a fast and flexible solution for high-quality, wavelet-based compression. LEAD has committed to fully support all future parts as they are released and therefore LEADTOOLS JPEG 2000 will continue to grow as the JPEG 2000 standard grows.

Overview of LEADTOOLS JPEG 2000 Image Compression SDK Technology

  • Load and save JPEG 2000 compressed image data in JP2, J2K, TIFF and more
  • Compress and decompress color and grayscale JPEG 2000 image data including 12 and 16-bit grayscale
  • Lossy and lossless compression options
  • Alpha channel of 32-bit images can be compressed separately from the image data either lossy or lossless
  • Control the active bits of the alpha channel to improve the compression
  • JPEG 2000 code stream data
  • JP2 file format
  • JPEG 2000 Part 2 (JPX) file format
    • Save list of images such as 3D volumetric encoded slices
    • Opacity channels
    • All standard metadata boxes such as XML, digital signature and intellectual property
    • Append and extract additional images or frames
    • Append and extract metadata boxes
    • Full control of code streams, frames and metadata
    • Read and write GML data
    • Animation support
  • Four progressive display methods:
    • Quality Axis — The image starts blurred and the sharpness increases as more image data is received
    • Resolution Axis — The image is loaded as a smaller version and the physical pixel size increases as more image data is received
    • Color Axis — The image is loaded one color plane at a time. The image starts loading as a grayscale image and the color will fill in as more image data is received
    • Position Axis — The image is loaded as blocks. As more image data is received, more blocks are displayed
  • Multiple resolutions can be stored in the same file without duplication of the image data providing the ability to only decode and display the image size required by the application
  • Error checking and robustness allows the transmission of JPEG 2000 encoded files over a noisy medium. If an error occurs in the decoding, the image will still be displayed.
  • Control over the final size of the file without hit and miss quality factor adjustments
  • JPEG 2000 image compression technology available as C DLL, C++ classes, .NET classes (C# & VB), WinRT Libraries, iOS, OS X, Android, Linux, Silverlight classes and Web services
  • Add JPEG 2000 image compression to single and multithreaded applications
  • Native 32 and 64-bit binaries for JPEG 2000 image compression
