    For fingerprint images WSQ (Wavelet Scalar Quantization) is superior to

    other lossy compression methods, such as JPEG, and was chosen by FBI
    (U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation) as the fingerprint image
    compression standard. WSQ is a lossy compression method that is
    well-suited for preserving the very high resolution details of
    grayscale images while maintaining high compression ratios of typically

    12:1 to 15:1.

    Cognaxon WSQ image library provides the easy way to add WSQ image
    format support to your software projects. WSQ image library reads and
    converts between WSQ and 31 other graphic file formats, it is small (~
    1.5 Megabyte) and fast, and has graphics format conversion utility.


    Supported formats for reading: WSQ, BMP, TIFF, TIF, JPG, JPEG, JPE,
    PNG, GIF, PSP, JFIF, RLE, DIB, TGA,WIN,VST,VDA,ICB, FAX, EPS, PCX, PCC,

    SCR, RPF, RLA, SGI, RGBA, RGB, BW, PSD, PDD, PPM, PGM, PBM, CEL, PIC,
    PCD, CUT, IFF, ICO, WMF, EMF.


    Supported formats for writing: WSQ - FBI's Wavelet Scalar Quantization,

    BMP - Windows Bitmap Graphics, TIFF - Tagged Information File Format
    (no LZW compression), PNG - Portable Network Graphics, JPEG - Joint
    Photographic Experts Group, RGB - Silicon Graphics International
    (uncompressed), TGA - Truevision Targa Graphic.


    Adding WSQ image library to your software project is very easy. Only
    2-3 steps and several lines of code are needed.


    Sample projects are provided for:
    Microsoft Visual C++ / Microsoft Visual C++ .NET,
    Microsoft Visual C# .NET,
    Microsoft Visual Basic,
    Microsoft Visual Basic .NET,
    Borland C++ Builder,
    Borland Delphi,
    Sun Java,
    Compaq Visual Fortran,
    PowerBASIC.
