PDF Compressor

The PDF Compressor Enterprise is the professional solution for server-based document conversion and compression. This flexible, scalable solution is designed for processing data volumes of any size.

Scanned documents are compressed into PDF- or PDF/A-format files and made searchable using OCR (character recognition). The Born Digital Module also allows you to process batches of digital documents created in MS Office, PDF or Outlook email format (including attachments) and to convert them to PDF or PDF/A.

The software's outstanding PDF and PDF/A document compression reduces incoming data volumes significantly while also delivering outstanding image quality in an ISO-compliant format designed for long-term archiving. Integrated OCR technology makes all files fully text searchable. Extracted data is automatically handed over to existing systems for further processing to assist with any number of business processes.

Large numbers of documents

For years, scan service providers and other companies, organizations and institutions dealing with large numbers of incoming documents have used the PDF Compressor. From capture to output, it reliably and automatically structures scanned and born-digital documents alike.

Highly scalable

The PDF Compressor is used in thousands of active installations for all kinds of centralized mass-processing projects: everything from small jobs to huge contracts converting millions of pages as quickly as possible.

Easy to integrate

As a production- and process-oriented solution, the PDF Compressor can be easily added into any existing workflow. Integration types include batch processing and job-list processing, in which the PDF Compressor Enterprise is jointly controlled by both upstream and downstream processes.

One format for all your documents

The PDF Compressor Enterprise turns all your data – whether scanned or born-digital – into a single unifying file format. Standardizing document structure drastically reduces the time and effort required for further processing.

Lasting operational stability

The PDF Compressor Enterprise meets every requirement for professional use. Many years of development and testing mean it remains stable and in use worldwide.

Text recognition included

All PDF and PDF/A files are fully text searchable, thanks to integrated ABBYY OCR technology.

A data format that brings independence

LuraTech's outstanding MRC document compression makes your archives compact and drastically reduces storage costs and bandwidth requirements.

Flexible licensing and cost control

Your business can change, and the way you use the PDF Compressor can change too. You can always be sure you're using it cost-efficiently, because the PDF Compressor adapts to meet your current tasks and needs. If the scope of work changes, you don't need an entirely new software package – just adjust your licensing package for greater functionality or a different page count. This way, you're always ready to act and you know how much it will cost.

Mass-processing and scalability

The PDF Compressor Enterprise is flexible enough to meet almost any document management need for scan service providers and corporate DMS/ECM departments. For years, the PDF Compressor has been successfully processing everything from occasional jobs to huge numbers of documents.

Outstanding document compression

The award-winning mixed raster content (MRC) layer-based compression technology compresses high-resolution black-and-white, grayscale and color scanned documents, with compression ratios of 1:100 or better. Outstanding image quality and text legibility are preserved, while storage costs and bandwidth requirements are drastically reduced.

Integrated OCR solution

Integrated ABBYY OCR technology allows full text searching for all PDF and PDF/A files, as well as outputting files in additional formats including XML, MS Word or plain text.


The PDF Compressor Enterprise produces standardized file formats including PDF and PDF/A. This makes the software fully interoperable with other products and the files completely independent of any single developer. ISO-compliant PDF/A documents will remain openable, readable and available far into the future.

Born Digital add-on module for digital documents

With the Born Digital module, digitally-generated documents from MS Office, Outlook (emails) and digitally-generated PDF(/A) files can be batch-processed just as easily as scanned paper documents.

Technological partnerships

LuraTech integrates the world's best technology to complete its document and data solutions. We use ABBYY OCR technology, for example, to allow full text searching for our highly-compressed PDF and PDF/A files.

Flexible licensing models for the PDF Compressor Enterprise

With three different licensing models – project-based, annual and unlimited – the PDF Compressor Enterprise is flexible enough to meet any project's demands. The three licensing models can be combined together in different ways to meet your needs.


  • One-time processing for a fixed number of pages
  • Page counts (cartridges) from 100,000 pages to several million

  • Use all CPU cores on a workstation for fastest possible processing times

Ideal for:
  • Project-based document processing
  • Migration projects
  • Converting old paper archives
  • Finishing off production backlogs


No time limit on license. Rechargeable at any time, compatible with latest software version.


Recurring number of pages per year

Use all CPU cores on a workstation for fastest possible processing times

Ideal for:
  • Ongoing small and medium-sized projects
  • Invoice processing
  • Ongoing document compression projects


If a company comes close to exceeding its annual page quota, they can combine the Advanced model with an additional Basic model in reserve.


Unlimited time and volume-based license

Use the total number of licensed CPU cores

Ideal for:

Scan service providers, companies and organizations looking to invest just once in their document conversion workflow in order to reduce costs significantly


By licensing additional CPU cores, the PDF Compressor Server can process millions of pages every month.
