Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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)
