Visually lossless coding allows image codecs to achieve high compression ratios while producing images without visually noticeable distortion. In general, visually lossless coding is approached from the point of view of the encoder, so most methods are not applicable to already compressed codestreams. This paper presents two algorithms focused on the visually lossless decoding and transmission of JPEG2000 codestreams. The proposed strategies can be employed by a decoder, or a JPIP server, to reduce the decoding or transmission rate without penalizing the visual quality of the resulting images.
