Registered Third-Party Filters (Compression)

Members of the HDF5 users community can register Third-Party (compression or other) filters for use with HDF5. (See the FAQ on Using Compression in HDF5 for how to add a Third-Party Filter to HDF5.)

To register a filter please contact The HDF Helpdesk with the following information:

Here is the current policy regarding filter identifier assignment:

Please contact the maintainer of a filter for help with the filter/compression support in HDF5.
