CVISION Provides American Radio History a PDF Optimization Solution
American Radio History preserves documents and periodicals of the radio and television broadcasting industry to make this information available to internet users. Due to the volume of material and the need to provide small and quick downloads, American Radio History needs to compress all scanned material. The company wanted to provide users with optimal experience, which included high speed in download time, the ability to open files instantly and high quality documents. American Radio History was using Adobe Acrobat but faced the problems, specifically of having large file sizes, blurred text and low-quality images on their scanned documents. American Radio History began to evaluate alternative solutions that would create smaller documents for quick download times without compromising the quality of legibility of the documents.
CVISION's PdfCompressor 6.0 with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) was purchased to optimize their documents. The software features a powerful combination of file compression and OCR to create PDF files that are both compact and fully text searchable.
Using CVISION's PdfCompressor, American Radio History was able to compress their documents to allow users of American Radio History to quickly download documents and periodicals. Without PdfCompressor, some of these documents and periodicals can be 1,000 pages and it can take a very long time to download such a document, even with high-speed internet. With PdfCompressor, download time decreased significantly. In addition, the documents produced using PdfCompressor were much more legible and images were far less pixelated than those produced using several versions Adobe Acrobat. PdfCompressor offered a set-up that was easy to implement. Overall, American Radio History improved user experience on their website.
