Hi Lee,

I trust all is well.

Hope you don't mind me dropping you a quick email but Rhett and the rest of us have been trying to crack down on conversion methods to speed up our fax transmission times. Are you able to provide me with any specific recommendations for achieving faster durations?

I've personally been testing between Group 3 and Group 4, 2D MMR, 1-D but we can't seem to translate anything into real reductions in duration (even if the TIFF is half the size of our original dithering methods).

I've been skimming the net, particularly the Hylafax forums and I can see there are a few people suggesting JBIG compression with v34.


Is this worth trying or do you have anything specific you think might help us out? I'm happy to play around with the dithering of the document, removing unique black pixels, less stippling, etc but I'd be keen to know if there is a particular type of TIFF compression that is best suited for faster durations.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
