AT&T Releases Source Code of DjVu Image compression Technology

Mar 20, 1999, 20:28 (6 Talkback[s])

Sent in by Alexis de Mockeville.

AT&T joins the open source bandwagon by releasing the source code of the DjVu Reference Library. The library contains the entire decoder and a large piece of the encoder. It is released under the AT&T Source Code License. DjVu image files are 5 to 10 times smaller than JPEG for high-resolution scanned documents, and about 2 times smaller than JPEG for photographs.
