This is nothing less than a totally essential reference for engineers and researchers in any field of work that involves the use of compressed imagery. Beginning with a thorough and up-to-date overview of the fundamentals of image compression, the authors move on to provide a complete description of the JPEG2000 standard. They then devote space to the implementation and exploitation of that standard. The final section describes other key image compression systems. This work has specific applications for those involved in the development of software and hardware solutions for multimedia, internet, and medical imaging applications.

Review quote

From the Reviews:
`JPEG2000 is more than an image compression standard, it is a whole new way to represent and interact with digital imagery. The standard provides the quality and flexibility required for modern imaging applications. No other authors have a more comprehensive and intuitive knowledge of JPEG2000 than Drs. Taubman and Marcellin.'
Martin Boliek, Editor, JPEG2000 Parts 1 and 2
`...the authors have produced a comprehensive book that covers a broad range of technologies and issues around wavelet compression. This book is a substantial contribution that fills the void between theory and the practice of JPEG2000. Although at times it's a bit too complex for the novice, this book should be considered as a mandatory companion to the JPEG2000 standard document for any serious practitioner of the standard.'
Journal of Electronic Imaging, April (2002):11(2)
