What is JPEG 2000?

JPEG 2000 is a wavelet-based data format that allows image files to be substantially compressed with little to no loss of image quality. This format, created by the Joint Photographic Experts Group committee, allows you to view any portion of a JPEG 2000 image at any resolution very quickly. It is similar to MrSID format; however, it is based on an open standard so it can be used by anyone.
