Millions of Megapixels per day are available with JPEG 2000

intoPIX-powered Satellite Imagery Solutions

JPEG 2000 is an image compression and coding system format to the ISO/CEI 15444-1 standard that is ideally suited for handling satellite images.

intoPIX JPEG 2000 FPGA IP-cores are used in many different satellite imagery applications today. The JPEG 2000 format enables images to be viewed in variable compression modes, making it popular with users looking for ever increased precision, resolution and information content in geospatial imagery, as well as for faster access to data.

Our JPEG 2000 IP cores offer many features suitable for GIS, including:
  • High pixel rate encoding (up to very high resolutions or high frame rates)
  • High bit depth (from 8 to 16 bits)
  • Various JPEG2000 encoding modes (from lossy to lossless)
  • Low footprint in FPGA

Practically, JPEG200 files are significantly smaller than TIFF or GeoTIFF files while retaining optimal image quality, with clear, sharp outlines and good color rendering.
This means images take up less disk space, they upload/download faster and navigation is optimized for enhanced data access and sharing.
