The principle enhancement in this version is significantly improved support for video compression applications. Compression is frame-by-frame, as dictated by the Motion JPEG2000 file format (this is now supported by Kakadu), so no motion or inter-frame redundancy is exploited. The new version incorporates a number of efficiency improvements for compression and decompression of image sequences.
Three new demonstration applications are provided: two for image sequences; and one to demonstrate full rendering of JP2 files to correctly interpolated and colour corrected sRGB output, in a platform independent application. As with all of the demonstration applications, executables are available freely, but the principle intent is to provide developers a starting point for their own applications.
