About Morgan Multimedia


"I founded Morgan Multimedia in august 1990, leaving my programer job on inbord computers of AIRBUS's engines at SNECMA Paris.


At this (ancient) time I wanted to work on something called 'multimedia' and spent a lot of my time and energy to try to convince potentials customers that 'multimedia' was not just a toy but could be very usefull.


At the same time war in the Gulf didn't help much to find partners and investors. I finally found 2 key partners locally and started to work on two kinds of projects : Medical Imagery and Language learning multimedia laboratory. I worked almost alone on these projects until 1998.


In 1998 I was developing a networking virtual VCR, and I needed a software MJPEG codec to finish the project. I contacted Paradigm Matrix to license their codec but after several mounth of discussions we haven't yet found an agreement. So I decided to develop this codec myself.


Quickcly the personal challenge became my codec to be better and faster than Paradigm's one.


At late 1998 I released it on the Internet, just to see what happened, a sort of internet-proof. I quickly realized the potential and decided to re-focus my business on the codec and more generally digital video."

What is JPEG2000 ?

JPEG2000 is the new international standard for image compression method and file format. This is the successor of the well-known traditional JPEG written by the ISO group Joint Photographic Experts Group.

Contrary to the technology JPEG which used DCT functions, JPEG2000 technology is based on an mathematical algorithm called wavelets to compress image that provides high compression with image quality superior to all existing standard encoding techniques even at low bit rates.

That’s the reason why JPEG2000 has a number of advantages over the JPEG Format.
