There are a number of occasions when we need to send across documents of large size, share documents and upload them onto the internet. If the size of the documents is very large, it becomes difficult to do any of the above mentioned activities. File compression engines help us in such cases. When we compress a document, the content remains the same whereas the size decreases enabling easier transfer. This helps in reducing the time to email and download them.
A file can contain images, videos in addition to text. Such files generally constitute a document. And almost any document can be compressed irrespective of its content.
This process of file compression engine works successfully only when both the sender and receiver of the information are aware of the encoding technique. That is to say the appropriate software must be present at both the sending end and receiving end. If this is not the case, the transfer of data will not be successful.
There are various file compression engine techniques. PDF (portable document format) compression is used mainly to compress JPEG files. Batch document compression is used to compress many files or documents simultaneously. This is used mainly in big organizations. It is also possible to convert a file from one format to another. That is to say we can convert a file from batch document format to PDF format.
The process of a file compression engine is very useful and very popular. Any type of files, images, videos, excel worksheets, power point presentation, databases, word documents, .TIFF files etc. can all be compressed. This process is very advantageous as it saves a lot of memory space. Thus the reduced memory space indicates that more data can be stored. Smaller sized files mean easier sharing. It is easier to send smaller files via mail or upload them onto the internet. Also reduced size of files will take lesser time to get uploaded. Batch document formatting helps in saving time as the files can be compressed simultaneously. The File compression engine is an indispensable tool for huge organizations. However when a file is compressed, there should be an appropriate decompression technique at the receiving end.
