J2K Technical Recommendation Group
The VSF J2K Activity Group completed the first phase of its work during the 1Q 2013, and issued a Technical Recommendation on 4/15/2013 entitled “Transport of JPEG 2000 Broadcast Profile video in MPEG-2 TS over IP” (pdf, 308k). The Technical Recommendation, which uses existing standards to define interoperable profiles for real time streaming of a broadcast profile JPEG 2000 codestream wrapped in MPEG2TS, with audio and ancillary data and encapsulated in IP with FEC, is available to VSF Members and Non-Members in PDF format.
The next step for the J2K Activity Group is to hold Interop events throughout 2013 and 2014. If you would like to participate please contact the Co-Chairs of the J2K Technical Recommendation Group listed below, or the VSF Operations Manager.
Future work in the J2K Activity Group will consider bidirectional, interactive applications that require specific optimizations for low system latency, as well as real-time transport of high end film and television production video formats. Another future goal will be to define interoperable profiles for real time streaming of JPEG2000 video wrapped in MXF with audio and ancillary data, and encapsulated in IP.
The J2K Technical Recommendation Group is liaising with DVB & EBU in order to create recommendations that is aligned with ongoing work on J2K over MPEG2TS within these groups.
