LEAD 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 acheiving high compression ratios for lossless encoding.
Overview of LEADTOOLS MJPEG 2000 Video Codec Technology

- 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.
