Recently, the JPEG standardization commit- tee created an initiative called JPEG Pleno. Pleno is a reference to plenoptic, a mathe- matical representation that not only provides information about any point within a scene but also about how it changes when observed from different positions. Pleno is also the Latin word for complete, a reference to the JPEG committees desire for future imaging to pro- vide a more complete description of scenes, well beyond whats possible today. Here, we dis- cuss the rationale behind the vision for the JPEG Pleno initiative and describe how it canpotentially reinvent the future of imaging.
