I was wondering would it be possible that image compression evolves as video compression? For video compression, it is admitted that it will orientate toward a multicodec world, where H.264,HEVC,VP9,AOM AV1 and VVC will coexist.
I know that I am dreaming but would it be possible for image compression? For example, Google PIK would be used for high quality, AOM AV1 will be used for very high and extreme compression, and NHW Project could be used for shooting photos on mobile phones because it is very fast and very good for mid and high compression...
I know there is a long way for the industry to share that opinion, but could image compression follows the way of video compression and of a multicodec world?
