Summary : An optimized implementation of the JPEG-LS standard
License : BSD
Description : An optimized implementation of the JPEG-LS standard for loss less and
: near loss less image compression. JPEG-LS is a low-complexity standard that
: matches JPEG 2000 compression ratios. In terms of speed, CharLS outperforms
: open source and commercial JPEG LS implementations.
: JPEG-LS (ISO-14495-1/ITU-T.87) is a standard derived from the Hewlett Packard
: LOCO algorithm. JPEG LS has low complexity (meaning fast compression) and high
: compression ratios, similar to JPEG 2000. JPEG-LS is more similar to the old
: loss less JPEG than to JPEG 2000, but interestingly the two different techniques
: result in vastly different performance characteristics.
