Extreme compression of PDF documents and images Features:
Procedure which preserves text legibility while maintaining high visual and color quality.
Compresses the files where the zip technology comes to a short.
Compresses all common image standards. Already compressed file-formats like JPG can easily be compressed up to 95%
The compression factor can also be manually adjusted/fine tuned in order to achieve any quality/size result. Courier Compressor uses JPEG 2000 and wavelet compression technology to compress photographic images more efficiently than any other available compression scheme.
Courier Compressor compresses PDF files at a very high compression rate, maintains image size and preserves good quality using the "mixed raster content" (MRC) layered compression technology. It compresses color scanned PDF down to the same size as black and white TIFF Group 4 images. That is a reduction of 100 times their original size while maintaining superior image quality, text legibility and document size.
Benefits and Values:
Most email systems used over satellite lines between vessels and shore offices offer automatic file compression based on ZIP/7zip or other similar technologies. This works fine on MS office type documents, text documents etc., but has little or no effect when attempting to compress JEPG files. Same applies to PDF documents. Courier Compressor do this compression that save your satellite transmission cost.
Most vessels have scanners installed on board for scanning documents that need to be sent to the shore office. Irrespective of the scan settings used, scanned documents are still quite large in the compressed mailbag resulting in high satellite transmission cost. Pictures of vessel spares and machinery acquired using digital cameras on board can now be transmitted to the shore office as much as 95% more economically.
By using the courier Compressor to process image files, PDF documents and scanned output, results in considerable smaller file sizes at nearly the same quality and minimizes satellite transmission costs.
Courier Compressor can also be used on the shore side for images, PDF documents and scans that need to be transferred to the vessels with the same cost benefits.
Easy to use:
Very simple user interface with intuitive buttons.You can easily adjust the compression ratio and compare the compressed image/PDF file before submitting to the email system. Users onboard will find the system easy to use and will be motivated to use the system to provide cost savings.
In the settings you can pre-set satellite charges and compare cost between original and compressed file. You will get an idea of how much money is saved by compressing the files.
There will also be a need for sending PDF/Scanned documents or images from the office to the vessels. Courier Compressor is the obvious choice.
