Infima Technologies is offering a new compression solution that could significantly reduce JPEG storage and bandwidth costs.
Infima describes its JPACK technology as â€œan innovative Re-compression software solution for JPEG files which provides fast compression/decompression and storage & bandwidth cost reduction of up to 80 percent without requiring any additional infrastructure.â€
The software is targeted at image vendors who maintain farms of servers and hard drives to store images but can also be useful for photographers who maintain thousands of photos in their computers.
Infima said the JPACK solution can be seamlessly and transparently integrated into vendorsâ€™ own systems, providing rapid, high-ratio compression paths. JPACK provides both significant latency reduction commonly associated with image uploading and Jpeg storage and bandwidth cost saving to image online vendors.
