JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

Named as a Group of Experts in Still Photography, this name refers to a standard in data compression for still images.

In particular, the work of the group has been developed with images encoded with the ITU-R 601 standard. JPEG uses DCT compression and offers data compression of between 2 and 100 times the original size.
