Mixed raster content
Mixed raster content, or MRC, is a method for compressing images that contain both binary text and continuous-tone components, using image segmentation methods to improve the level of compression and the quality of the rendered image. By separating the image into components with different levels of compressibility, the most efficient and accurate compression algorithms for each type can be used.
Generally, MRC is packaged into a hybrid file format which supports markup language such as XML, allowing for multiple images, and the instructions to properly render each of them, to be stored within a single file.
