DescriptionDjVu was initially developed by AT&T and is used as an image compression technology that is an open sourced alternative to PDF. It allows for scanned documents, photographs and very high resolution images to be distributed via the internet. There are a whole host of DjVu viewers, browser plugins, encoders and decoders available on both Mac and Windows.

Technical DetailsDjVu was initially developed by Yann LeCun, L´┐Żon Bottou, Patrick Haffner, and Paul G. Howard at AT&T Labs from 1996 to 2001. It promises smaller files sizes than standard PDF's and is therefore perceived to be superior to PDF's primarily due to it's higher compression ratio. DjVu files are typically seperated into three images - the background and foreground (around 100 dpi) and the mask image which is higher resolution (e.g. 300 dpi). The background and foreground images are compressed using an algorithm named IW44 with the mask image compressed using JB2. Ultimately this results in dramatically reduced file sizes.
