Broad HEIF image use-case coverage

Nokia HEIF solution is compatible with both HEIF (ISO/IEC 23008-12) and MIAF (ISO/IEC 23000-22) standards.

The Nokia HEIF implementation can read and write:

  • Still images, image collections, associated thumbnails, and related metadata such as EXIF or XMP information
  • Image sequences such as cinemagraphs or image bursts and related metadata
  • Unprocessed and processed images in the same file with proper label and reference
  • Image derivation information such as rotation, overlay, and grid view along with the images, so that different image derivations can make use of the same image data set
  • Auxiliary image data such as depth maps and alpha channel along with the images
  • Audio tracks and cover images along with still images and image sequences
