Recently,two new international image and video coding standards have been released:the wavelet-based JPEG2000 standard designed basically for compressing still images,and H.264/AVC,the newest generic stan- dard for video coding.As part of the JPEG2000 suite,Motion-JPEG2000 extends JPEG2000 to a range of applications originally associated with a pure video coding standard like H.264/AVC.However,currently little is known about the relative performance of Motion-JPEG2000 and H.264/AVC in terms of coding e .ciency on their overlapping domain of target applications requiring the random access of individual pictures.In this pa- per,we report on a comparative study of the rate-distortion performance of Motion-JPEG2000 and H.264/AVC using a representative set of video material.Our experimental coding results indicate that H.264/AVC performs surprisingly well on individually coded pictures in comparison to the highly sophisticated still image compression technology of JPEG2000.In addition to the rate-distortion analysis,we also provide a brief comparison of the evaluated coding algorithms in terms of complexity and functionality.
