Prof Dr ir Peter Schelkens is professor at the Department of Electronics and Informatics (ETRO) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). He is research director at the iMinds institute founded by the Flemish government to stimulate ICT innovation. The research interests of Peter Schelkens are situated in the field of multidimensional signal processing encompassing the representation, communication, security and rendering of these signals while especially focusing on cross-disciplinary research. Peter Schelkens is associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. He is spokesperson of the international JPEG standardization committee and also chairs JPEG’s Coding and Analysis group. Since 2014, he holds an ERC Consolidator Grant focusing on digital holography.
His talk is entitled: JPEG Standards: are we prepared for the next disruptive evolution in digital imaging markets?
JPEG format is today a synonym of modern digital imaging, and one of the most popular and widely used standards in the history. Images created in JPEG format now exceed several billions per day in their number, and most of us can count a couple, if not more, JPEG engines in devices we regularly use in our daily lives. This talk will provide an overview of existing JPEG standards, but also focus on new initiatives such as JPEG XT, providing support for HDR, lossless and alpha channel coding and JPEG PLENO, which is targeting a standard framework for the representation and exchange of new imaging modalities such as light-field, point-cloud and holographic imaging.
