In this paper, we analyze the performance of Motion JPEG2000 for wireless applications. This new standard is based on intra-frame wavelet coding. Motion JPEG2000 is offering a number of very compelling advantages when compared to state-of-the-art MPEG-4 video coding. Wavelet coding achieves very high coding efficiency. Furthermore, because frames are intra coded, it is very error-resilient. Finally, Motion JPEG2000 requires low complexity, supports very efficient scalability, and introduces minimal coding delay. In this paper, we propose an analysis of the performance of Motion JPEG2000 and a comparison with MPEG-4 in terms of coding efficiency, error resilience and complexity. We present experimental results which show that Motion JPEG2000 outperforms MPEG-4 for wireless applications.
