Turn your images into a compressed PDF in a click!
Turn your images into a compressed PDF in a click! (PresseBox) (Louvain la Neuve, ) I.R.I.S., a technology company (listed on EURONEXT Brussels: IRI), specializing in Intelligent Document Recognition (IDR), Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Optimized IT Infrastructure (ICT) is very pleased to announce the release of its unprecedented generator of compressed PDF files IRISCompressor(TM) during its annual convention IRISLink 2012.

Based on I.R.I.S.' intelligent High-Quality Compression technology (iHQC(TM) , US patent-protected), IRISCompressor(TM) is designed to convert standard document images (color or black & white uncompressed formats such as JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF, image PDF, etc.) into a new color or black & white PDF document of much smaller size (up to 20 times), fully compliant with any PDF viewer.

Key benefits

- Drastically reduce the size of your images to create color or black & white PDF, PDF/A (for long-term archiving) or XPS files without compromising text resolution and legibility. You can even print your compressed documents with perfectly preserved visual quality!
- Save time by speeding up large file transfer (quicker downloads and uploads).
- Save money by reducing your storage space up to 20 times and by saving bandwidth while sharing your documents.
- Save time by retrieving your compressed documents in a click, thanks to keywords searches.
- Improve internal communication thanks to easier and quicker document availability to any users.

Bernard de Fabribeckers, Sales Director, comments: "I.R.I.S.' exclusive hyper-compression technology is a simple and efficient solution to the storage and sharing issues a user faces today/. With I.R.I.S.' iHQC(TM) (Intelligent High-Quality Compression technology) they can shrink image files (including text, pictures, tables, etc.) up to 50 times compared with their original size, while preserving visual quality, for easy sharing and cheap storage! Compressed documents, in standard PDF formats, are fully searchable and can be opened with any usual viewer."

He continues: "Our secret? Based on our 25-year experience, we developed an intelligent imaging algorithm that determines the different components within the original image (background, foreground, text, lines, etc.). Instead of applying a unique compression type to all the components of the image, different compression strategies will be combined to maintain perfect legibility and select the most fitting compression method."
