Based on my analysis on all the JPEG 2000
implementations out there, Kakadu
is *by far* the best solution
Version 8.0.5 Released
SDK V8.0.5 is now available for purchase and evaluation. Version 8 is a very large upgrade, the major feature is introduction of the new High Throughput JPEG 2000 (HTJ2K) standard that offers a massive enhancement in processing throughput to the whole JPEG 2000 family of standards.
Version 8.0.4 Released
SpeedPack vS8.0.4 is now available for purchase and evaluation. This special release offers remarkable speed improvements, ranging from around 30% to 60%, on modern x86 processors, running on 64-bit operating systems, relative to regular Kakadu, which is already one of the fastest implementations around.
