Intelligent Content Compression

Improve content transfer with the Adlib Compression Module

With the vast amounts of unstructured content contributing to the largest content stores we have seen to date, organizations are increasingly taking action to deal with the volume. With Adlib’s intelligent compression capabilities, such as Mixed Raster Content (MRC) Compression, JBIG2, JPEG2000, and other standards, your organization can improve the flow of content among internal and external stakeholders while saving 60% or more on digital storage costs. By using Adlib’s intelligent compression features, you can create smaller file sizes without compromising on document fidelity, saving significant storage space and managing the transfer of information more efficiently.

Smaller files for faster flow of information

Adlib’s PDF compression options can reduce file sizes by up to 60% or more. Leveraging MRC technology, our intelligent compression engine separates each section of the document (color image, color photo, black and white text, etc.) and selects the most appropriate compression capability in order to create the greatest file size reduction with minimal loss of fidelity. This means you can be confident that information you send to colleagues and customers is of the highest quality and can be accessed quickly.

Ideal for:

  • Organizations in a variety of industries including Energy, Banking, Insurance and Life Sciences who are looking to minimize their storage costs while keeping document fidelity front of mind, in addition to those who are looking to optimize their ECM environment by ensuring their content is the right size and resources aren’t wasted.
  • Systems Integrators focusing on the management of unstructured content, whose customers demand flexible compression capabilities, can reduce necessary storage capacity by up to 60% or more by selecting the best compression option for the document at hand.

Best Practices

  • Standardize content to PDF, regardless of the source format, and compress content intelligently.
  • Maintain smaller PDF file sizes for easier distribution via email or online as they use less bandwidth.
  • Support high reliability and availability with enterprise-grade software.
  • Deploy as a shared service, scaling Adlib technology with intelligent compression across various business units.


  • Reduce file size by 60% or more: The significant reduction in file size enables the speedy transmission and viewing of files among internal and external stakeholders, including the mobile workforce.
  • Retention of high-fidelity content: With Advanced Rendering, there is minimal loss of quality due to our high-fidelity conversion capabilities; searchability is also maintained.
  • Storage costs reduced: Requiring up to 60% less storage capacity, when files are compressed using MRC compression, storage costs are drastically reduced.
