What is PDF Compressor?

PDF Compressor can make your documents fully searchable with super-accurate OCR. Intelligent pre-processing makes our OCR far more accurate and dramatically faster than leading OCR products. Plus, our OCR is available in over 117 languages. PDF Compressor's OCR can process paper-based documents in real-time, accelerating the entire workflow. PDF Compressor combines super-accurate OCR, including support for multi-directional and low contrast text and barcodes.

Using the latest in image compression technology and the new JBIG2 & JPEG2000 compression formats, PDF Compressor makes the most compact, web-friendly PDF files available. PDF Compressor compresses typical black and white scans by a factor of 5x-10x (compared to TIFF G4) and color scans by a factor of 10x-100x (compared to JPEG). Our unmatched text-focused color scan processing ensures maximum data retention, even under high compression. Compressed files look exactly the same as the originals, and can be viewed using any PDF Reader, including Foxit Reader. By reducing file size, documents can be emailed, transmitted, accessed, and stored more efficiently.

Uniquely, PDF Compressor combines image processing, real-time OCR, advanced compression, PDF/A, Bates-stamping, web-optimization, batch multi-threading, and encryption all in one step.

PDF Compressor's OCR is the fastest engine available as it processes documents in real-time. In addition to high-speed OCR, the OCR engine contains settings to achieve the highest recognition rates possible. PDF Compressor's OCR has been tested to be more accurate than leading OCR engines. High accuracy recognition rates are achieved by leveraging advanced image processing techniques including: re-sampling, foreground and background separation, auto-rotation, and font learning.

OCR dual modes can be configured to your document processing needs:
