Information technology — Scalable compression and coding of continuous-tone still images — Part 5: Reference software (Adopted ISO/IEC 18477-5:2018, first edition, 2018-03)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document provides reference implementations of multiple parts of the ISO/IEC 18477 series, also known under the name JPEG XT. JPEG XT is designed primarily for compression of continuous-tone photographic content.
