vPDF Compression

vPDF Compression (3)

vPDF is a unique PDF compression and conversion technology developed and owned by Versis. Using the latest in image compression technology and image segmentation techniques, vPDF makes the most compact, Web-Enabled (i.e. enabled for fast web view) PDF files available.

vPDF will compress typical black and white scans by a factor of 5-10x and colour scans by a factor of 10-100x depending on content.

Example: vPDF will take a 300dpi colour scanned page saved as an uncompressed TIF from 25Mb to a 45Kb PDF with no visual loss.

Or...Take an existing standard PDF and reduce it's file size by 10 times without any visual loss.

The resulting compressed PDF is a STANDARD PDF and can be used, modified, read and edited by all PDF Readers and Editors.

vPDF combines image processing, OCR, advanced PDF compression,  options settings, web-optimization and encryption all in one step.

With vPDF there is no need for any additional plug-ins or viewers as the output is in the industry standard Adobe PDF format (just a lot smaller in file size! ) and can be viewed by Adobe Reader v6 and upwards.

The resulting PDFs created by the vPDF process can be used and treated like any normal PDF. (e.g. add notes, OCR, add push pins, secure, digital signatures etc..)

You simply convert and compress your documents using vPDF software and immediately you save disk space, bandwidth, time and money.


Sit vPDF Server Encoder on any machine, set up jobs to watch any number of folder locations and the encoder will automatically compresses and convert all incoming PDF and/or TIFF files into the smallest PDF files possible anywhere with any product.
