M-JPEG Codec

Morgan M-JPEG codec

Morgan M-JPEG codec is a multimedia compressor/decompressor which registers into the Windows collection of multimedia drivers and integrates with any application using DirectShow and Microsoft Video for Windows. Existing video software, such as Windows Media Player, Sony Vegas Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro, can utilize this codec to play, create and edit industry standard M-JPEG files.

Codec features

 

  • 100% software.
  • Incredibly fast (4x to 10x faster than Microsoft in-box M-JPEG codec).
  • Playback M-JPEG AVI and MOV files (DigiCam, DSLR, WebCam, NetCam,...).
  • Playback "old" hardware M-JPEG AVI files (Rainbow Runner, DC10, DC20, DC30, Buz, ...) without the specific hardware codec.
  • Realtime software M-JPEG compression on capture cards that does not perform hardware compression.
  • Video Editing of M-JPEG projects without the specific hardware codec.
  • MMX, SSE, SSE2 and Multicore optimisations.
  • Support most of the M-JPEG formats (4:2:2, 4:1:1, 4:2:0, MJPG, dmb1, jpeg).
  • RGB and YUV input/output supported (RGB32, YUY2, UYVY, ...).
  • Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Seven, Video for Windows and DirectShow compliant.
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CSx.x support.

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.
