Shrink Big Data With Enhanced Compression Wavelet (ECW)

ECW Compression

Preserve critical information while saving space with simple, cost-effective and powerful compression for both imagery and point cloud data

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. 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. For ultimate image delivery performance, ECW Protocol efficiently streams ECW and JPEG2000 imagery over networks.

Why is ECW the best format for storing your terabyte or larger image files?

  • High-performance compressed file format designed specifically for extremely large imagery stores
  • Achieves 15:1 compression ratios (94% reduction) 
  • Fastest compression and decompression (rendering) rates in the industry
  • ECW file format is supported across all major image server and storage platforms
