Enhanced Compression Wavelet
ECW technology provides exceptional compression, capable of reducing terabyte-sized files to five percent of their original size, while retaining the image’s full visual quality.
When you compress your imagery into ECW format, the result is a much smaller single file that can be stored, sent and displayed even on small devices.
- High-performance compressed file format designed specifically for large imagery stores.
- Achieves 15:1 compression ratios – 94% reduction
- ECW file format is supported across all major image server and storage platforms.
- Incorporate ECW into your Desktop, Server or mobile application.
- ECW outperforms all alternative storage formats across these four critical image format characteristics:
- Encoding speed
- Decoding speed
- Retention of the necessary image quality
- File size reduction
- Shrink Big Data – Preserve Critical Information while saving space with simple, cost effective and powerful compression for both imagery and point cloud data.
- Rapid Generation and Delivery – Create ECW files faster than 25MB per second, with delivery benchmarked as the industry’s finest.
- Huge Disk Space Savings – ECW can compress imagery to 5/10% of original size, while maintaining visual quality.
