Just want to note that I have open sourced my jpeg2000 codec. I am releasing this mostly for the benefit of other open source software, not commercial.
Some gotcha's about this implementation (I recommend offis's implementation for production)
- Not well tested
- Uses OpenJPEG, which is a reference jpeg 2000 implementation. It is correct, but not very fast.
- I am licensing it under GPL. I want to see more open source stuff based on dcmtk. Undecided about commercial, please contact me, if you think it's a good idea.
- Not memory optimized. There are some code path that uses 3x the size of the uncompressed image.
If all that warning doesn't faze you, then give it a try. It's very easy to use, just add 4 lines of code to register/clean up like other codecs.
I am curious to see how it compares to other codecs based on kakadu, etc. Someone who has more time should do a study! Please submit issue on github.https://github.com/DraconPern/fmjpeg2koj
