I looked into lossless compression options in OpenEXR and write a small post with the findings. Next up, trying to add/tweak more compression thingies!

@ignaloidas haven't checked myself, but e.g. indicates that libdeflate is faster than cloudfare's zlib fork. Yeah, but hstlib benchmarks are a quite old, and AWS contributed the decompression performance improvements quite recently. I don't expect compression speeds to be higher, but decompression speeds might be higher with it, since some patches claim 30% improvement.
