The JPEG 2000 standard (ISO 15444) provides a set of features that are of importance to many high-end and emerging applications in the digital imaging market, everything from digital cameras, pre-press, remote sensing, medical imaging, e-commerce and other key media sectors. Due to its advanced features, the MainConcept JPEG 2000 Encoder and Decoder SDKs optimized for the professional market, where superior image quality and editing features are of highest importance. DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) adopted JPEG 2000 for video encoding of motion pictures (http://www.dcimovies.com/) for replacing current movie distribution and presentation from movie rolls with high-res mj2 streams with superior image and sound quality.
