Image Object Content Architecture Format (IOCA/MODCA)

The Image Object Content Architecture format was developed by IBM. This architecture provides a consistent way to represent images, including conventions and directions for processing and interchanging image information. LEADTOOLS supports 3 types of IOCA files:

  1. Raw IOCA files. These files use the FILE_RAWICA_XXX defines. These files are single IOCA images and do not have the MO:DCA wrapper.

  2. MO:DCA IOCA files. These files use the FILE_ICA_XXX defines. These files can be multipage and have the MO:DCA wrapper around the IOCA image.

  3. AFP MO:DCA IOCA files. These files use the FILE_AFPICA_XXX defines. These files can be multipage and have the MO:DCA wrapper around the IOCA image prefixed with AFP.

LEADTOOLS supports the following 1-bit compressions: Fax Group 3 or Group 4 images, IBM MMR (Fax G3 1D without EOL), uncompressed and ABIC. LEADTOOLS also supports 4-bit files with ABIC compression only. LEADTOOLS also supports 8-bit and 8-bit files with JPEG compression only. LEAD loads and saves all these formats.

LEADTOOLS supports loading and saving multipage files in this format.

The default extension used by this format is: ICA.

This file format does not support stamps or Lossless JPEG compression, but it does support multipage files for the MO:DCA files. LEAD does not support RLE4, Color Compression used by OS/2.

File constants associated with this file format are:
