Foxit® to Bring High Resolution Imaging to PDF with Hipix®

Foxit and HM Announce Partnership with High-Resolution Imaging Technology

FREMONT, Calif. - January 8, 2013 - Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced it has entered into a partnership with HM (Human-Monitoring) for integration of ultra-efficient, high resolution images into Foxit’s PDF technology. HM is a leading provider of innovative still-image and video processing technologies. 

HM’s hipix is a compression and rich image format technology utilizing ubiquitous video support for creation and display of still images. The integration of hipix with Foxit’s PDF technology will allow PDF documents which include hipix images to be:

  • Smaller in size, thus reducing storage space. hipix image files are typically 1/5 to 1/3 the size of hi-resolution smartphone JPG files.
  • Viewed much faster, increasing performance. hipix photos load at blazing speeds on both desktop and mobile devices. Photos as large as 41MP being loaded within a fraction of a second!

Foxit generated PDF files which contain hipix images will be fully PDF compliant, so they will be compatible with any compliant PDF reader. However, the enhanced user experience is only available through Foxit’s PDF technology. Foxit users will be able to create and enjoy documents, magazines, photo albums, brochures, and catalogs containing images of high resolution images with high performance and lower storage requirements.

"Bringing together Foxit's advanced viewing, creation, and editing PDF capabilities and hipix image technology will allow people to share full, uncompromised, exquisitely detailed images captured by their smart phones and DSLRs without the limitations," said Ira Dvir, co-inventor of the hipix format. "High resolution PDFs will become nimble: easy to transfer and fast to display."

"Foxit is excited to include hipix imaging within industry leading Foxit PDF technology. This will enable our users to create and view even more amazing documents and albums, from desktop to mobile devices," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of marketing for Foxit Corporation.
