HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) is the lossy image (and animation?) format defined by MPEG-H Part 12 (ISO/IEC 23008-12). The standard is expected to be published in 2017-12.

It is closely related to the HEVC video format, so in that way it is similar to BPG. It uses ISO Base Media File Format as a container format, so in that way it is similar to JPEG 2000.

Identifiers

Based on draft specifications, it uses the brands mif1 and msf1.
