MRC compression (in PDFs) achieves significantly better file compression without visible degradation of document representation. Significant reduced file size, up to 10 times smaller compared to JPEG compression. Ideal when colour documents are scanned and processed.
Improved MRC compression saves bandwidth and storage, especially for colour documents. Application users benefit from the combination of good visual quality with small file sizes - particularly useful for reading documents on mobile devices.
The diagram illustrates the basic principle of MRC PDFs: different sections of a page are compressed with different compression algorithms. So for example
The image below shows a code sample that is installed with FineReader Engine 10. It makes the testing and implementation of a good PDF MRC export really easy.
