JPEG 2000 for the Practitioner: Free One Day Seminar

London, 16/11/2010

Simon Chaplin opens 'JPEG2000 for the Practitioner'A free seminar to explore and examine the use of JPEG 2000 in the cultural heritage industry was held at the Wellcome Trust. The seminar included specific case studies of JPEG 2000 use. It examined technical issues that have an impact on practical implementation of the format, and explored the context of how and why organisations have chosen to use JPEG 2000. Although the seminar had an emphasis on digitisation and digital libraries, the papers are relevent to a range of research and creative industries. Places were limited to 80 attendees and papers are now available online. 

Christy Henshaw of the Wellcome Library has written a short report of the event.

This event was hosted by the JPEG 2000 Implementation Working Group and the Wellcome Library with assistance from the DPC.  0900-1700 at the Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road London.  Click here for details of the venue,
