Digital compression and coding of continuous-tone still images

By Anon.


This CCITT Recommendation | ISO/IEC International Standard was prepared by CCITT Study Group VIII and the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 10. This Experts Group was formed in 1986 to establish a standard for the sequential progressive encoding of continuous tone grayscale and colour images. Digital Compression and Coding of Continuous-tone Still images, is published in two parts: Requirements and guidelines; Compliance testing. This part, Part 1, sets out requirements and implementation guidelines for continuous-tone still image encoding and decoding processes, and for the coded representation of compressed image data for interchange between applications. These processes and representations are intended to be generic, that is, to be applicable to a broad range of applications for colour and grayscale still images within communications and computer systems. Part 2, sets out tests for determining whether implementations comply with the requirments for the various encoding and decoding processes specified in Part 1
