Cover Recognition and Conversion Validation Options Spark Excitement for CVISION'S 3.1 Release of PdfCompressor Professional Edition

CVISION has announced the v3.1 release of its flagship PdfCompressor Professional Edition.

"For the last 3 years PdfCompressor has been the only world class compression product for financial, legal and other industries where accuracy is critical," says CVISION's Steve Talmud. "This new v3.1 release demonstrates that we are intent on not just staying ahead, but increasing the gap."

PdfCompressor Professional Edition v3.1 brings a host of user-pleasing new features that include:

  • Support for multi-threading
  • New OCR engine with support for 60 languages
  • Turbo OCR for added OCR accuracy
  • Multidirectional OCR
  • OCR zoning
  • Auto-smoothing for both B&W and color images
  • Auto-cropping
  • Auto-rotation
  • Decompression to PostScript
  • More compact JBIG2 file size
  • Enhanced color compression
  • Support for international Windows OS platforms

Optional Add-Ons:

  • Cover recognition module (CovR)
  • Conversion validation module (ICert)


PdfCompressor optional CovR and ICert modules have garnered special attention from CVISION customers. The ICert (Independent Certification) module offers an automated proofing system of the file conversion process. ICert is far more than just another result-sampling process. It opens the original and the converted documents, examines them for accuracy, and certifies the comparison to within a specified tolerance. ICert operates across various input file formats, including TIFF, BMP, PDF, and JPEG. The standalone module generates a complete log of any discrepancies between the pre- and post-conversion datasets. The result? The hassle and anxiety of file conversion proofing is gone.

The possibilities available using the v3.1 release don't end there. CVISION's optional CovR (Cover Recognition) module groups and names output files based on information printed on inserted cover sheets. Features of the new CovR module include: automatic cover sheet detection, invariance to scanning resolution, support for color, greyscale, and bitonal files, multipage TIFF conversion to distinct PDF or TIFF files, and watched folder support.

"CovR was created from the expressed needs of some of our customers," said CVISION's Ralph Cafiero. "It offers our users one more way to simplify and automate their file recognition and conversion processes."

When Time is of the Essence, CVISION Compression Delivers Transmission Speed Up for BurrellesLuce News Express

The Express media monitoring service of BurrellesLuce starts with a sophisticated search system of print and online media. In the form of scanned pages, those results go to seasoned editors who cull unnecessary information from the product that is finally transmitted to clients. Keeping the Express service running on an accelerated schedule means the process has to be streamlined for speed. That's no small task.

BurrellesLuce's scanners pick up the newspapers as early as possible in 32 remote locations. The papers are scanned and sent into the BurrellesLuce facility, edited and sent on to the client. The goal for the Express service is to have client files available to them as early as 7:00 a.m., so saving time in the process is important.
