N463 by Dr. Bo Martins
The idea of multi-stage dictionary was discussed.
N466 by Dr. Bo Martins
For the necessity of evaluating generated half-tone images, an image contained in Color Facsimile Testchart was selected. The floor appreciated the volunteering work of half-toning by Bo, and it was agreed to add the image into the JBIG-2 test image set.
After the presentation of these documents,
Liaison matters and patent issues were treated before going to
the discussion of convergence.
6. Liaison Issues
Following documents were presented in sequence.
N451 by Mr. Steve Urban
Several questions from ITU-T/SG8 concerning T.85 ( Application Profile of T.85) on applying
T.82 to Facsimile applications were introduced. WG1/JBIG found no big problems on the proposed modification of T.85 and resolved to send technical comments on them.
N430 by Mr. Lloyd McIntyre
This is the Liaison of introducing 3LM (3 Layer Mode) having been proposed in ITU-T/SG8. At the time of the presentation, no specific comments were raised. It was resolved that if some issues will be raised before next ITU-T meeting in Feb.`97, they will be discussed via E-mail among JBIG members before sending them to ITU-T/SG8.
N431by Mr. Lloyd McIntyre
The former half of this document is relating to 3LM. The latter half of this document asks JBIG-2 more information. The specific number concerning memory buffer being requested are not currently on hands, and will be prepared after PaloAlto meeting.
N447 by Dr. Fumitaka Ono and Dr. Ronald Arps
Dr. Ono explained the background of N447. Dr. Arps referred to N448, the USNB resolution, which contains the comments concerning T.85 marker ordering. Dr. Arps also presented his concern about the number of stripes expected at the decoder side. The floor agreed to send a new Liaison on this document.
After the discussion, following Liaison reply and new Liaison were produced and agreed to be sent to ITU-T/SG8.
WG1N469: Reply to WG1N451(CM76)
WG1N478: Reply to WG1N431(CM63)
WG1N477: New Liaison on WG1N447(TD098Rev.)
7. Patent Issues
WG1N416 was introduced by Dr. Ono. This is
a Japanese National Body resolution requesting Lucent Technologies
to keep the same patent licensing condition as AT&T at the
transferring timing of JBIG related patents between them. Floor
agreed to issue the request with the source of JBIG. Concerning
an Eibsee resolution which asks Canon to specify Canon's so-called
implementation patents, Mr. Tadashi Yoshida, Canon Inc., presented
verbally that Canon will announce the list on request basis.
8. Discussion on convergence of proposals
The main problem by which we cannot move into
WD drafting stage is the prioritization of speed and compression
performance. And since we are producing generic standardization,
it was agreed that we will provide supersets and the main profiles.
The typical profiles were discussed and Mr. Stephen Swift volunteered
to provide the summary at the appropriate timing.
9. Editing committee on Working Draft
The Editing Committee was formed as specified
in Attachment 4. It was resolved that the first version of WD
will be prepared at the end of Jan. 1997.
10. Any other Business
Further WG1/JBIG meetings are scheduled as
See Attachment 2.
The floor thanked its host Hewlett-Packard, in particular Dr. Daniel Lee, and Ms. Gina Massey-Parnis for the excellent organization of the meeting. The meeting was adjourned on Nov.14.

|TITLE:||JPEG 2000 ad hoc committee report|
The ad hoc committee focused on the information that will be needed from contributors to this working item. It created document N461 (based N424 and N425) as a preliminary version of the questionnaire that will be given to the contributors.The evaluation of this information and the nature of subjective testing was discussed but further discussion is necessary. It was concluded that a subjective test is desired. Any testing is to be approved by WG1. Further, Eastman Kodak Company has offered to print high quality prints and the use of a high quality display at a future JPEG meeting held in Rochester, New York.
Goals and actions at the Dijon meeting
One goal is to finalize the requirements for the information the contributors
must submit. The following activities are essential for this goal.
Another goal is to issue the actual call for contributions. The following are essential.
Finally, consideration can be given to the character of the evaluation of the contributions including:
|TITLE:||Current status, Web site|
This is a brief report on the current status
of Web development within JPEG.
As well as file store space, the Group were offered Web space at the Eibsee meeting by IBM. In practice, after a long delay, the ftp site should now be operational at
Users should log in as sc29wg01 with a password of More_Sun
Three directories will be made available:
|1 incoming||where uploads should be made|
|2 docs||where documents will be transferred|
|3 files||where files will be located|
Note that a Web browser (such as Netscape) should be able to access the ftp site by using the URL ftp://sc29wg01:More_Sun@drop.chips.ibm.com. There may be periods when the site is unavailable - it appears to be locked by Pete Schirling prior to WG11 meetings to set a deadline.
The Web site has proven to be problematical - it must be loaded from within the IBM firewall, Pete has yet to find answers to technical queries on scripts and how to operate them, and I recommend we abandon this offer as unworkable in practice.
To compensate, I have used Web space that we have acquired for a pilot project with BSI Disc, and a Web demonstration is now available at http://www.disc.org.uk/.jpeg. The entry area is public access, and can be used for dissemination of standards, whilst the entry point points to a password protected area. This contains a number of pages, and tools for:
I propose the following:

|TITLE:||Resolutions of the Ninth meeting of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG1, 11-15 November 1996, Palo Alto, California, USA|
|SOURCE:||Daniel Lee, Convener, ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG1|
See SC 29 N 1832.
Five proposals were presented at WG 1 November
1996 meeting. The five proposals can be separated into three
basic proposals 1) KLT followed by JPEG, 2) KLT followed by a
wavelet and , 3) Decorrelation technique (KLT and others) followed
by JPEG. WG has guided us to separate out the spatial compression
technique and allow for current JPEG and possibly JPEG 2000.
This action then allows for quick convergence of the adhoc group.
Because of the pending launch of commercial remote sensing satellites
in late 1997 and 1998 the need for this standard is greater than
ever. WG 1 would like to put this standard on the fast track.
The following is a proposal of the new timeline for this standard.
|January 97-||Collection of test imagery, documentation of evaluation terms, further|
|March 97||refinement of algorithm with tests.|
|July 97||report on evaluation, development of Working Draft Standard,|
|November 97||development of Committee Draft Standard,|
|March 98||development of Draft International Standard,|
|July 98||finalization of International Standard.|
The main actions of the adhoc group is to have
convergence on several minor differences (mainly syntax) of the
proposals. The following are the difference that need to be evaluated
for merit and syntax.
1) The variable quantization that is proposed
by Optivision that is different than any other proposal. How
should this be include d in the definition of MC compression standard.
2) The requirements of future standards (JPEG
2000) and how this can be incorporated into the definition of
MC compression standard. The Kodak proposal uses current JPEG
syntax. This needs to be extended and reviewed for future standards.
Also, a better review of current JPEG syntax must be completed
to understand if there is any other parts of JPEG that MC compression
standard would break.
3) A concern for the interleaving of multiple
components greater than 4 (not allowed by current JPEG). Possible
options are to break current JPEG, make sure it allowed for in
JPEG 2000, or produce a compromise that allows for both.
4) A comparison of the overhead required for
decompression that is proposed by Kodak, Optivision and MITRE
is required to decide on the best solution of the decompression
signal syntax. The selection of the solution must be low overhead,
robust and a complete solution.
The last action is to test and evaluate the proposed consensus algorithm. This will be completed with the following structure of an evaluation criteria. The test plan should include a visual and statistical measure of MC followed by JPEG against the current JPEG. Several test images have been compiled by Kodak for the MS compression test. These images have been presented to the addhoc group for consideration. Other images will be collected at the next WG 1 meeting.
