ABC Image Compression SDK Libraries

LEADTOOLS ABC is a proprietary 1-bit compression, developed by LEAD Technologies. Helping organizations save time and money, LEADTOOLS ABC outperforms all industry-standard compression algorithms.

Feature-rich ABC Image Compression SDK

ABC == Advanced Bitonal Compression

LEADTOOLS ABC is a breakthrough in document image compression technology. This proprietary 1-bit compression, outperforms all industry-standard compression algorithms. When compared to standard compressions such as CCITT G4 and JBIG, ABC significantly reduces the storage space requirements and lowers bandwidth usage by allowing customers to realize file sizes that are 4 to 5 times smaller. LEADTOOLS compression engineers have designed Advanced Bitonal Compression specifically for efficient network transmission of scanned manuals, books, checks, and other document types.

Why ABC is Better than JBIG

Image data that has been compressed with LEAD's Advanced Bitonal Compression exhibit comparable visual quality and smaller file sizes when compared the the same image data compressed with JBIG. Additionally, the ABC compression algorithm includes several several image cleanup options that JBIG does not provide.
