Software for automatization of lossy (re)compression of scanned bitmaps to standard JBIG2 with adaptive optimalization level of lossiness and compression. It can be used on any PDF files that contain bitonal images (e.g. created by scanning during digitization). On these types of files the space gained by recompression is often more than 50%. In addition, the quality of the rendered page is often better than before recompression, as character candidates used during recompression are averaged over all representants recognized (by OCR techniques) in given PDF. It has been applied on 30,000+ pages of and has been also used in the EuDML project. The application has been described in the peer-reviewed publications like Sojka, P., Hatlapatka, R.: Document Engineering for a Digital Library: PDF recompression using JBIG2 and other optimization of PDF documents.
