ISO/IEC 15444-15:2019



This Recommendation | International Standard specifies an alternate block-coding algorithm that can be used in place of the block-coding algorithm specified in Rec. ITU-T T.800 | ISO/IEC 15444-1. This alternate block-coding algorithm offers a significant increase in throughput at the expense of slightly reduced coding efficiency, while a) allowing mathematically lossless transcoding to and from codestreams that use the block-coding algorithm specified in Rec. ITU‑T T.800 | ISO/IEC 15444-1, and b) preserving codestream syntax and features specified in Rec. ITU-T T.800 | ISO/IEC 15444-1.

Recommendation ITU-T T.814 (2019) is a common text with ISO/IEC 15444-15:2019, both in their first edition.
