Part 3 defines a file format called MJ2 (or MJP2) for motion sequences of JPEG 2000 images. Support for associated audio is also included.
MJ2 does not involve inter-frame coding: each frame is coded independently using JPEG 2000. Expected applications include:
- storing video clips taken using digital still cameras
- high-quality frame-based video recording and editing
- digital cinema
- medical and satellite imagery
MJ2, originally defined in ISO/IEC 15444-3:2002 as a standalone document, has now been expressed by ISO/IEC 15444-3:2002/Amd 2:2003 in terms of the ISO Base format, ISO/IEC 15444-12.
Part 3 became an International Standard (ISO/IEC 15444-3) in November 2001.
It is currently available for download from ITU-T as their Recommendation T.802.
