OpenJPEG is an open-source library to encode and decode JPEG 2000 images. As of version 2.1 released in April 2014, it is officially conformant with the JPEG 2000 Part-1 standard.[3]

Support for lossless 16-bit images[edit]

Unlike JasPer,[4] another open-source JPEG 2000 implementation, OpenJPEG fully respects the JPEG 2000 specification and can compress/decompress lossless 16-bit images.[citation needed]

Origin[edit]

OpenJPEG is a fork of libj2k, a JPEG-2000 codec library written by David Janssens during his master thesis at UCL in 2001.
