LizardTech® GeoExpress® software reduces storage costs by compressing images to less than 5 percent of their original size using either the industry-standard MrSID® image compression format -- now updated to MrSID Generation 4 (MG4™) -- or the ISO-standard JPEG 2000 format, all while retaining the visual quality of the originals. GeoExpress 9 is now four times faster than before with support for distributing multiple jobs across multiple cores. With such a significant improvement in speed, this easy-to-use application enables you to get your job done faster than ever before. In addition, GeoExpress 9 introduces Intelligent Encoding. Now, GeoExpress automatically reconfigures itself to give you the best performance depending on the encoding options you choose; no need to waste time changing between the Encode, Optimize, and Update tabs. With GeoExpress 9, all of these options are chosen automatically based on the encoding operations you choose, resulting in high performance with minimal training.
