“JBIG2 represents a revolutionary breakthrough in captured document technology.” – David Andrew Douglas Tompkins, “Rate Control in Bi-Level Image Coding”
Any claim of emerging software being “a revolutionary breakthrough” is suspect in a world of constantly changing technology. Yet JBIG2 is proving to be just that. This powerful technology allows electronic documents to be compressed into file sizes that offer optimal speed in transmission over business networks, via wireless and e-mail, and online. This Primer is meant to help an everyday reader understand some JBIG2 basics, and to provide a compact review on JBIG2 for the seasoned IT professional. It also offers digital media practitioners suggestions for JBIG2 optimization, and some ways to explain compression and JBIG2 to their non-IT colleagues.
