LuraTech is a software company with offices in Remscheid, Berlin, London, and in the USA. LuraTech was founded as a part of a joint project with the University of Berlin designed to bring wavelet compression techniques to still digital images.
LuraTech developed a segmentation technology to deal with scanned documents containing mixed raster content (MRC), resulting in the creation of LuraDocument LDF, a proprietary document format for the compression of scanned documents. In 2002, LuraTech created the PDF Compressor, applying the concepts of MRC layered document compression to the Adobe PDF standard. This was the first workflow solution that LuraTech built on top of its software development kits.
In 2010 LuraTech launched DocYard, a software platform to create and centrally manage any document and data conversion process.
