I am not sure of where else to post this,but the introduction of the new Lumia 1020 also brought in exciting new technologies.One of them is RAJEPG.
RAJPEG was introduced by a company called scalado,which has been acquired by Nokia.Since now it is an IP of Nokia, I wish Nokia can bring the same technology to S40,Asha Platform etc..Partial JPEG decoding
Using RAJPEG technology, access image data without decoding a whole JPEG image for blazingly fast previews, application of effects, rotation, and cropping of high resolution images.
I am not talking about opening images taken by a 41 MP camera.Even a JPEG image taken by a 3 MP camera cannot be fully decoded, due to memory constraints.As a compromise, the image had to be scaled down, so that it can fit into memory.This compromise in quality has been the only solution for decades.
A technology like RAJPEG can totally change this scenario and open up new domains in Image Processing for S40/Asha Phones, leading to better applications and better customer satisfaction.
I hope my post can reach the intended audience.
