Image compression requires higher performance as well as new features to address the need in the specific area of still image encoding, a new standard is currently being developed, that is JPEG2000. The JPEG2000 standard provides a set of features that are of vital importance to many high-end and emerging applications. JPEG-2000 is an emerging standard for still image compression. This paper provides a brief history of the JPEG-2000 standardization process, an overview of the standard, and some description of the capabilities provided by the standard. In this paper we describe JPEG-2000 from the point of view of encoding.
