At the time of this writing, JPEG2000 is the newest international standard for still image compression. The JPEG acronym stands for “Joint Photographic Experts Group.” The “Joint” here signifies that JPEG2000 is published as an ISO/IEC standard, as well as an ITU-T Recommendation. The acronyms of the previous sentence stand for International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission, and International Telecommunications Union-Terminal Sector,1 respectively. The Joint Bi-level Imagery Experts Group (JBIG) has often worked closely together with the JPEG committee. In fact, the two committees typically meet in the same venues.
