Techopedia explains Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG)

Created in 1986, the Joint Photographic Experts Group is a product of efforts by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Efforts to create standards for digital images led to the creation of JPEG to promote consistency in software and hardware products.

JPEG continues to look at issues of image compression and new technology methods like wavelets, which can promote a high standard for the creation and use of digital images in many devices, from computers to handheld devices and other hardware.
