Addressing latency-critical applications with JPEG 2000

April 18, 2012 // By Thierry Pauwels, Barco-Silex
Latency is the delay generated by the processing of data. For video compression, it is measured as the delay between the time the first pixel is fed to the encoder and the time it is generated at the output of the decoder. Considering the complete transmission line, latency results from the various operations performed to transmit the video. Acquisition, compression, transport, buffering, decompression, filtering and synchronization are as many sources for latency. The purpose of this paper is to cover the most common ways of reducing the latency related to the video compression based on JPEG 2000.
