Image Compression

General Image Compression

LEADTOOLS has been the leading supplier of standard-based and superior proprietary alternative image compression and decompression SDK for many commercial applications. It brings over decades of optimized code from compressing bi-tonal images used in document management to extended grayscale images widely used in life science industries.

The wide range of compression technology offered by LEAD can greatly improve performance of any imaging application or system. Various lossless compressions can be used for compressing image without compromising integrity of the image data; where as with little loss of image data an application or system can achieve tremendous performance gain by greatly reducing the image size, image load  and save time and transmission time over the network.

LEADTOOLS offers optimized image compression with the following benefits to an application:
