            Small memory footprint

            Simple, integer-only operations (no divides)

·       Industry-leading compression quality

·       Lossless or lossy compression using the same algorithm

·       Support a very wide range of pixel formats:

            Monochrome, RGB, CMYK or n-Channel image representation

            8 or 16-bit unsigned integer

            16 or 32-bit signed integer

            16 or 32-bit floating point

            Several packed bit formats

            1bpc monochrome

            5 or 10bpc RGB

            RGBE Radiance

·       Simple, extensible TIFF-like container structure

·       Planar or interleaved alpha channel
