Accusoft Adds Superior Compression to SDK for PDF Functions
TAMPA, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
the leading provider of document, content and imaging solutions,
announces today that it has released PDF
Xpress version 6, an enhanced version of its software development
kit (SDK) for empowering applications to create, modify, and render
standard Adobe (News - Alert) PDF and PDF/A files.
A longtime leader in advanced image compression technology, Accusoft has
added PDF compression functions in version 6. Now applications built
with PDF Xpress can make the PDF files they create or modify
dramatically smaller, with customizable settings to control the type and
amount of compression applied. PDF Xpress now includes a new automated
functon that analyzes PDFs to find ways to optimize image compression
and reduce overall file size with little or no visible loss in display

2 MB, for a 96% savings. (The actual compression achievable depends on
the size and number of images in the PDF and other factors.)
Compressed PDFs take up less storage space and display more quickly,
especially when viewed online. That's a boon to developers who want the
PDFs output from their applications to be easy to view through mobile
devices, and those who want to offer visitors to their websites rapid
display of PDF content. Smaller PDFs also print faster, and transmit
faster when shared, a plus for any service provider delivering PDF files
to end users.
PDF Xpress v6 also offers convenience to designers and developers, who
can now optimize multiple images contained within a PDF in a single
