~ A new image-encoding standard ~

26 June 001 (DS0120) ~ Developer Solutions International, the application development
specialist, is now shipping LeadTools' JPEG 2000, a multi-resolution format, which contains
several stored resolutions in non-redundant form. The JPEG 2000 is a new state-of-the-art
ISO/ITU still image compression standard that provides a fast and flexible solution for
high-quality, wavelet-based compression, and conforms fully to the JPEG 2000 Part I
International Standard. JPEG 2000 is available as a plug-in to any LEADTOOLS 12.1 toolkit.

Available now from Developer Solutions and its resellers, JPEG 2000 costs £770.00 + VAT. Visit for full details.

“JPEG 2000 is a new image-encoding standard that provides a feature set vital to many high end
and emerging imaging applications. It provides high compression with image quality superior to
all existing standard encoding techniques, due to the adaptation of wavelet transforms. Wavelet
transforms are mathematical formulas that represent complex structures in the image, thereby
compressing an extremely large amount of image data into a relatively small amount of compressed
data,” says Adrian Handley, general manager, Developer Solutions.

Key features

· Support for the JP2 file format and JPEG 2000 Stream Data

· Improved performance and quality

· Lossless compression, meaning the decompressed image data is exactly as it was before

Support for four progressive display methods:

. Quality Axis - the image starts blurred and the sharpness increases as more image data
is receive

. Resolution Axis - the image is loaded as a smaller version and the physical pixel size
increases as more image data is received

. Colour Axis - the image is loaded one colour plane at a time, starting as a grayscale
image and the colour 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

· 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
