MPEG-2, JPEG 2000, bit rate control.


The MPEG-2 standard is the most used codec for video compression. This paper investigates the consequence of replacing the JPEG core system of the MPEG-2 video codec by a progressive image codec, specifically JPEG 2000, so creating a video codec (VC) that can match any desired bit rate. The quality of compressed video sequences between MPEG-2 and VC is compared. Results show that our codec improves the quality of the decompressed im ages.
