MJ2, first defined by Part 3 of the ISO Standard for JPEG 2000 ISO/IEC 15444 in November 2001 (ISO/IEC 15444-3:2002) as a standalone document, has later been defined by ISO/IEC 15444-3:2007, ISO/IEC 15444-3:2007/Amd 1:2010, additional profiles for archiving applications, and by ISO/IEC 15444-12 which defines the JPEG 2000 "base media format, which contains the timing, structure, and media information for timed sequences of media data.
The standard is available for download from "ITU-T as their Recommendation T.802.
Motion JPEG2000 was always intended to coexist with "MPEG. Unlike MPEG, MJ2 does not implement "inter-frame coding; each "frame is coded independently using JPEG 2000. This makes MJ2 more resilient to propagation of errors over time, more scalable, and better suited to networked and point-to-point environments, with additional advantages over MPEG with respect to random frame access, but at the expense of increased storage and bandwidth requirements.
