Well, you might just start by testing the files produced by Epsilon before
inventing a new format ;-) As far as the ECW format itself, I don't think there
will be an opensource implementation for the decoder because the format is
non-documented, and even if it was documented, there are a few patents floating
around which might prevent implementing it in countries allowing software

You can try TIF with JPEG compression to reduce the size a bit, or use JPEG2000
that begins to have viable OpenSource implementations, like OpenJPEG, although
still significantly slower than proprietary implementations.
