VintaSoft JPEG2000 .NET Plug-in - Overview

JPEG 2000 is an image compression standard for color and grayscale images. It is suitable for both lossless and lossy compression. JPEG2000 compression compresses color and grayscale image more effectively than JPEG compression.

Now the JPEG2000 compression is very popular in PDF documents: most of scanners generate PDF documents with JPEG2000 images, many PDF editors use JPEG2000 compression decoder and encoder, all PDF compressors use JPEG2000 viewer and encoder. Also JPEG2000 files are popular.

VintaSoft JPEG2000 .NET Plug-in is the add-on for VintaSoft Imaging .NET SDK, which allows to decode and encode JPEG2000 images using Microsoft .NET Framework.

General features

  • The plug-in is a pure .NET library written in C#
  • AnyCPU, x86 and x64 mode support
  • JPEG2000 codec algorithm has been developed in full compliance with the official ISO/IEC 15444 specification
  • Decode JPEG2000 image stored in JPEG2000 file or PDF image-resource
    • Decode JPEG2000 image stored in .jp2, .jpc, .j2k or .j2c code stream
    • Decode JPEG2000 image of the following JPEG2000 image formats:
      • Palette image with 4 and 8 bits per channel
      • Grayscale image with 4 and 8-16 bits per channel
      • RGB image with 8-16 bits per channel
      • RGBA image with 8-16 bits per channel
    • Decode the whole image or image tile
    • Progressive multithreaded image decoding with progress indication
    • Decode JPEG2000 image with lossy or lossless compression
  • Encode JPEG2000 image stored in JPEG2000 file or PDF image-resource
    • Encode JPEG2000 image as unwrapped or .jp2 code stream
    • Encode image to the following JPEG2000 image formats:
      • 8-bpp grayscale
      • 8-bpp palette
      • 24-bpp RGB
      • 32-bpp RGBA
    • Encode the whole image or image tile
    • Encode image tile without re-encoding the whole image
    • Multithreaded image encoding with progress indication
    • Encode image using lossless or lossy JPEG2000 compression
    • Specify the desired size of JPEG2000 file and encoder will create the file of desired size
    • Specify the desired compression ratio (0-100) for lossy compression
    • Manage the enhanced JPEG2000 compression parameters: tile size, quantity of wavelet (decomposition) levels, number of layers, progression order
    • Change image metadata (image resolution, color space, palette) in .jp2 code stream without re-encoding the whole code stream
  • Get a scaled image without loading the whole source image into memory
  • Modify very large JPEG2000 image without loading the whole source image into memory
  • Use the JPEG2000 compression in PDF image-resources, instead of JPEG compression, for decreasing size of PDF document - VintaSoft PDF .NET Plug-in is necessary
