LEAD's MJPEG 2000 video DirectShow and Media Foundation codecs compress and decompress video data using the JPEG 2000 standard. MJPEG 2000 does not use interframe compression, making it a superb format for .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ developers to choose for video editing, interoperability, and achieving high compression ratios for lossless encoding.

Overview of LEADTOOLS MJPEG 2000 Video Codec Technology

  • Full support to encode and decode JPEG 2000-compressed video data
  • MJPEG 2000 offers higher compression efficiency with less visual loss especially at extreme compression ratios than MJPEG
  • Optimized for multi-core processors and supports encoding and decoding more than 30 fps of HD video in real time
  • Single codestream that offers both lossy and superior lossless compression
  • Flexible bit-error correction provides high-quality playback within noisy network transmission environments
  • Supports 16-bit grayscale video
  • Popular compression format for MXF and high-resolution video situations
  • .NET (C# & VB) and C DLL libraries for 32 and 64-bit development

What is MJPEG 2000?

MJPEG 2000 or MJ2K is a video adaptation of the JPEG 2000 standard for still photos. It treats a video stream as a series of still photos, compressing each individually, with no interframe compression. Because it uses no interframe compression, it is ideal for editing. The JPEG 2000 standard is the official successor to JPEG and will eventually replace the older JPEG standard for high-quality image compression.
