JPEG2000 Seminar

JPEG 2000 for the practitioner – a one-day seminar

A free seminar to explore and examine the use of JPEG 2000 in the cultural heritage industry will be held at the Wellcome Trust.

The seminar will include specific case studies of JPEG 2000 use. It will explain technical issues that have an impact on practical implementation of the format, and explore the context of how and why organisations may choose to use JPEG 2000.

Although the seminar will have an emphasis on digitisation and digital libraries, the papers will be relevent to a range of research and creative industries.

Places are limited to 80 attendees. Papers will be made available online after the event.
