infima Compresses JPEG Storage

HERZLIYA, Israel -- Infima Technologies, a leading developer and marketer of file compression solutions, announced today the release of JPACK(TM), an innovative Re-compression software solution for JPEG files which provides fast compression/decompression and storage & bandwidth cost reduction of up to 80 percent without requiring any additional infrastructure.

The most popular JPEG online archiving and social networking sites are already managing hundreds of terabytes of images and the bandwidth overhead required to deliver an enjoyable and responsive user experience for online image viewing is becoming an increasing challenge. Infima's JPACK solution can be seamlessly and transparently integrated into vendors' own systems, providing rapid, high-ratio compression paths. JPACK provides both significant latency reduction commonly associated with image uploading and Jpeg storage and bandwidth cost saving to image online vendors.

"Image online archiving is one of the fastest growing areas of Internet usage", said Avshalom Cohen, VP marketing and sales at Infima Technologies. "JPACK solution rapidly generates significant JPEG recompression ratios that enable us to decrease upload time instead of adding latency. We have found that this novel approach is much more compelling to vendors, as compared to alternative solutions that have been proposed to them. The solution is transparent to users, enables instant savings of millions of dollars in physical storage requirements, floor space and expensive server-cooling systems, and hundreds of terabytes of storage reduction and power saving opportunities. With no additional infrastructure or hardware to be installed, the cost saving can be felt immediately and the positive effect on the environment is a welcome added benefit."
