PRESS RELEASE: JPEG2000/Part6 - LuraDocument.jpm: Beta program has begun!
Algo Vision LuraTech introduces LuraDocument.jpm, the first worldwide implementation of the new ISO standard JPEG2000/Part6.
JPEG2000/Part6 is the standard for compressing real documents in color. That's because the scanned documents are first segmented, i.e., the image components are separated from the text components and the text is divided up again into pure black & white text and the text color. The resulting three layers are compressed separately from each other. None of the text layer is lost (lossless compression), which means that the quality of the text is optimal. This is especially significant for readability and OCR capability (text recognition). The other two layers are each compressed separately in JPEG2000/Part1 (the image compression within the JPEG2000 format family). This results in enormous compression rates - rates from 1:100 to 1:500 are not unusual - and the well-known very high image quality of JPEG2000.
This approach may seem familiar to many because it's the same one being used with the well-known LuraDocument. Therefore, LuraDocument.jpm is also considered to be an update in the LuraDocument product family with the same high quality standard. Soon, all the familiar tools of LuraDocument will be available for LuraDocument.jpm.
The LuraDocument generated files have file extension LDF, the file extension for JPEG2000/Part6, is JPM. JPM is supported not only by Algo Vision LuraTech, but by other well known companies in document imaging, including: Xerox, Ricoh, NEC and others.
Now there's nothing standing in the way of archiving in color! All users and many prospective clients have always considered LuraDocument to be the solution for making color archiving possible. Also with LuraDocument.jpm, the last issue of being a proprietary format has been eliminated, because LuraDocument.jpm is no longer a proprietary format. This new software is 100% compatible with the ISO standard! (In contrast to the only previous competitor ..)
For those who can decide quickly, it is possible to grab one of the last spaces in the beta test program for LuraDocument.jpm C-SDK. Detailed information and complete (free) support for JPEG2000/Part6 will be made available prior to official release only to beta testers. Make sure you have this competitive advantage and also the option to be able to acquire the release version of LuraDocument.jpm C-SDK at the special price that is exclusively for beta testers.
