The survey results revealed several key areas that JPEG 2000’s user community will need to have addressed in order to further enhance adoption of the standard, including perspectives from cultural institutions that have adopted it already, as well as insights from institutions that do not have it in their workflows to date. Current users were concerned about limited compatible software capabilities with an eye toward needed enhancements. They realized also that there is much room for improvement in the area of educating and informing the cultural heritage community about the advantages of JPEG 2000. A small set of users, in addition, perceived problems of cross-codec consistency and future file migration issues.
