JPEG - From mediaeval paintings to holography

Since their inception, digital cameras and displays have revolutionized consumer photography and professional imaging. Imec's Peter Schelkens and Frederik Temmermans have been at the heart of that effort. Today Peter Schelkens is also involved in JPEG Pleno, a new standard for innovative imaging modalities such as point cloud, light field and holographic imaging. Peter talks about how these will drive many exciting developments. But he also enthuses about how his team recently helped reveal fascinating details in the paintings of Pieter Bruegel.
