IEEE 1857 working group sponsored by Standards Activities Board Committee (C/SAB) under IEEE Computer Society is charted to create and maintain 1857 series standards to provide regular high quality and efficient coding tool sets for compression, decompression, processing, and representing of multimedia data. We are working to save bandwidth for transmission, save space for storage, speed up indexing and multimedia search and enhance performance when using mixed media for virtual reality and any other applications that demand high bandwidth.
