This standard covers bi-level images that are coded using International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (CCITT) Recommendations T.4 and T.6, as well as bit-mapped images (having no compression). The file format is media-independent. The file format document in this standard is known as “AIIM Level 1.1” or A11.
The purpose of this standard is to standardize a self-contained file format for the transfer of bi-level image files in environments other than facsimile telecommunications. The image file format is similar to a Document Application Profile (DAP) and supports the transfer of encoded bi-level raster scan images in environments including but not limited to, ODA environments.
