What is DjVu?

Editor's Note: Following are the introductory statements about DjVu from the DjVuLibre and LizardTech websites.  DjVuLibre is the open-source implementation of DjVu, and LizardTech is the commercial implementation.

From DjVuLibre:

DjVu (pronounced "dj vu") a set of compression technologies, a file format, and a software platform for the delivery over the Web of digital documents, scanned documents, and high resolution images.

DjVu documents download and display extremely quickly, and look exactly the same on all platforms with no compatibility problems due to fonts, colors, etc. DjVu can be seen as a superior alternative to PDF and PostScript for digital documents, to TIFF (and PDF) for scanned bitonal documents, to JPEG and JPEG2000 for photographs and pictures, and to GIF for large palettized images.

DjVu is the only Web format that is practical for distributing high-resolution scanned documents in color. No other format comes close.

In today's geographically dispersed markets, success often requires the ability to distribute complex, network-ready documents to a broad customer base or mobile workforce. Document Express with DjVu enables organizations to distribute and view large, complex, or color documentation quickly and efficiently, regardless of connection and without compromise to document quality.
