tiff file is larger than the same image or document in other formats. but it maintains high quality. so In order to save disk space and quickly transmit TIFF images, we need to use professional compressing tool to get tiff compression vb.net with suitable compression schemes. so that we can get the size you are asking for.
I know I am late gtting back to this, but yes it has to be tiff. And the resolution has to be 200x200 dpi for our recognition system to work. Is there a way to force it to go into Group4 (G4) fax compression? That is wat seems to work on some other scanners to bring the size of the file down. I also have a limitation of 100k per page.
Does it have to be a tiff? I know you can adjust the compression(limited) for a JPEG.
Otherwise I think the only option you have to decrease the file size on a tiff is lowering the resolution, which may not be desirable if you run into quality/readability problems.
I have a customer with a Xerox 8560 MFP. They are using it for document imaging with our software. It has a limit of 100k Per page at 200x200dpi. Is there a way to increase the compression on the tif files when scanned to get the size below 100k? Other tests we have done suggest most papers should compress down to around 70k and they are continually coming in at over 120k in size per page. I have not been able to find any reference to setting tiff compression in the manuals I have seen online. Unfortunately I do not have physical access to the server.
