Is JPEG 2000 encoding a thing now?

It has been used on DCPs the whole time so it is common. But on cameras has been rare, I think the main reason is it requiring lots of processing power to encode and the RED had patent for using it for onboard recorded raw video on cameras so manufacturers ended up using other codecs in-camera. Other codecs are more edit friendly as well, the reason why RED material plays back reasonably well is because it is debayered at fractional resolution instead of full res which makes it lighter to playback but needs even more processing power to encode in-camera and makes the whole thing complicated to do well
