Product Description


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)

Format: Hardcover
This book plus CD-ROM package is a precise reference for professional engineers and academic researchers in the fields of communication, image processing, signal processing, information theory, and multimedia. It has specific applications for those involved in the development of software and hardware solutions for multimedia, Internet, and medical imaging applications and for those pursuing research in image and video compression. This book is primarily divided into four parts for the sake of simplicity. Part I presents a nice overview on image compression, and Part II describes the JPEG2000 standard in detail. Part III is devoted to the implementation and exploitation of the standard, and contains guidelines, suggestions, and analyses for both software and hardware oriented applications. Part IV describes other key image compression standards. The CD-ROM contains documentation, binaries, and source code to the Kakadu software tools. The book can be used as a primary text for courses in image compression and multi-media compression. This is a very well written, comprehensive and useful documentation for the practicing engineers and researchers alike.

Know why you're buying this book 4 May 2002
By fred doh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is quite good but any potential buyer should know exactly why he would buy it and if it really matches his expectations. Indeed, this book is hardly a helper in implementing jpeg2000, but more a reference book for highly skilled image processing professionals/researchers. It is divided in two parts: the first part is about general image processing topics and provide some explanation about the choices made for jpeg2000. It is the "theorical" part. The second part is about jpeg2000 itself. The latter could have been much more practical and better directed to implementors. In fact, I was thinking of this book being able to clarify some aspects of the norm that are quite blur, but I find the way it is written, even for the second part, overly complicated and scientifically oriented, not "engineering" oriented. Most of the topics are better explained in the norm itself than in this book, even if the latter is much more detailed. Clearly there is room for another book on the topic but this time directed to implementors, with less theory, less scientific notations, are more, much more, real world examples working on real bit-streams.

I don't see how and to whom this book could possibly be helpful 14 Feb. 2009
By calvinnme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is divided into four parts. The first part of the book is about every signal processing subject under the sun that touches the JPEG2000 standard - in 400 pages. This is too much if what you want to do is code/decode existing JPEG2000 files. It is not nearly enough if you don't understand these topics in the first place. At this point you finally see a chapter with JPEG2000 in the title. This is followed by 175 pages that basically "plug" the standard when, finally, on page 573 you get to the JPEG file format, or so the chapter title says. However, there isn't enough information to code and decode a JPEG2000 file.

This is not a book you'd want if you want to work with existing files, and it is not a book you'd want if you want to create JPEG2000 files. It is more about the underlying science of JPEG2000 at a very high level and is intended to sell you on the standard's value versus JPEG. The author even tells you this in the preface.

My advice is - if you have to do this professionally get your company to buy this overpriced tome as a sometimes reference and most-of-the-time doorstop. As for yourself, google "JPEG2000 Tutorial". There are a number of clear tutorials out there for the DSP-aware that want to know something about the technology behind J2K and why it is an improvement over JPEG. For the programming part, look for the javadocs on Java Advanced Imaging. It has a JPEG2000 decoder/encoder and once you know the basics of the technology, the parameters you feed the decoder/encoder will make more sense. All of this will cost you a grand total of nothing.

Useful text for researchers and graduate students 18 Jun. 2013
By Slava - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Do not be mistaken when buying this book. This book won't help you to implement JPEG2000. However, it will help you to understand the fundamentals of the standard. This book also won't teach you the digital image processing basics. However, if you already have the basics established, it will help you to advance mostly in wavelet techniques. This book is mostly suitable for researchers and graduate students. You will especially benefit from this book if you intend using Kakadu JPEG2000 software library. It's a good quality text.

The book is one of the worst of books I have read 2 April 2003
By saiwaifengyun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If one wants to learn jpeg2000, he can look for some papers and source codes which are better than this book.
If one wants to learn theory of image coding, he can read some other books much better than this book.
This book is only for fools.
