Adobe: there'll be no DNG, JPEG XR turf wars

"I think it's inappropriate to label the two formats as competitive," Tom Hogarty, product manager for Photoshop Lightroom, said in an e-mail interview with [url=http://news.com.com/8301-13580_3-9767396-39.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-5]CNET[/url]. He believes that not only is the case now, but more significantly, will be the case in the future as well.

Digital Negative Specification (DNG) is an industry-wide initiative to create one unified format for archiving raw digital images. It's Adobe's attempt to standardize the profusion of proprietary "raw" formats that give owners of higher-end cameras the option to process image data on their own computers instead of leaving it to the camera, which throws away a lot of data in the conversion to JPEG, notes CNET.

JPEG XR, formerly known as Windows Media Photo and HD Photo, is a new file format for end-to-end digital photography that, according to Microsoft, “offers better image fidelity, higher image-compression efficiency and flexible editing features benefiting today’s and tomorrow’s digital-imaging applications." It's Microsoft's attempt to create a higher-quality sequel to JPEG; JPEG XR likely will be standardized by the same neutral group that did so with ordinary JPEG, notes CNET. Although JPEG XR and DNG are largely in separate domains, statements from Adobe and Microsoft indicate some potential for some overlap in the future, the article adds.
