JPEG2000

The Joint Photographic Experts Group originally created the JPEG standard. In the 1990s, they worked on JPEG2000, a standard that this group hopes will replace JPEG. From the JPEG2000 in Archives and Libraries website:
In particular, the JPEG committee sought to create an open standard that provided the ability to bundle metadata with images in the same physical file, better efficiency in image compression including the option of “lossless” compression, and storage of multiple resolutions of the same image in one file.
Libraries involved in the creation of digital libraries and preservation should be examining this standard and how it might be implemented into current projects.
