Page 1 of 1
Feith Systems & Software Inc. this week released DjVuer, a new image tool.
DjVuer was created by Feith along with AT&T Labs, which developed the breakthrough DjVu technology that compresses images with ratios as high as 1000:1. With this release, graphic professionals and content creators can utilize AT&T Labs' DjVu technology to create "higher apparent resolution" color images on the Web.
The images are up to 5-10 times smaller than any Web compression technology currently available on the market. Users can scan high-resolution color pages of books, magazines, catalogs, manuals or other documents and make them available on the Web.
Typical high-resolution color images which contain both text and pictures are 40 to 80 kilobytes, five to 10 times smaller than JPEGs. Black-and-white pages become 10 to 20 times smaller than JPEG and five times smaller than traditional GIFs.
The DjVuer software is available for Microsoft Windows users, while free browser plug-ins available from AT&T's DjVu site enable cross-platform viewing of the images created by the tool. Additionally, plug-ins are available for other operating systems, including Macintosh OS8, Solaris, Linux and many varieties of Unix.
