JPEG 2000 codestream
JPEG 2000 codestream (also known as J2K, J2C, or JPEG 2000 Part 1, Core Coding System) is the wavelet-based compressed image format defined in Part 1 of the JPEG 2000 standard. Both lossy and lossless compression are supported.
It may appear in a file by itself, but it was designed to be embedded in JP2 or another file format.
A JPEG 2000 codestream uses a variant of JPEG format, with a nearly identical system of markers and segments. (Note that the container formats used by JP2 and other JPEG 2000 file formats are completely different.)
There is no official filename extension, but .j2k and .j2c are commonly used.
