What is Brame Compression
BRAME is a new and efficient encoder for data compression.
It has exceptional performance for small files and transactional data.
It can be deployed as a key part of an end-to-end data transmission process and works for both Consumer/Enterprise and IoT environments.
Here we present a simple analysis of a large body of text samples compressed with GZIP and compared to Brame.
It is a reasonable conclusion to say that Brame Compression compares very favourably with the industry standard compressor GZIP.
ANALYSIS 1: Brame Compression vs. GZIP (Newspaper Articles)
Taking 20,000 newspaper articles - averaging 500 words in length - let's compare the average resultant compressed output sizes:
- In almost every test, Brame Compression produced a significantly smaller output than the industry standard compressor, GZIP.
ANALYSIS 2: Brame Compression vs. GZIP (Tweets)
Taking a rather different view and looking at the ability of Brame and GZIP to compress small text samples - in this case a corpus of 100,000 tweets - let's compare the compressed output sizes:
- GZIP often inflates small text files.
- Brame radically improves on GZIP and typically removes about 60% from the uncompressed file size.
Try it yourself...
Enter up to 1000 characters of text, press GO and see how well it compresses.
GO - compress with BRAME and GZIP
One or two points you might see with a little experimentation:
- Short text items will inflate under GZIP compression.
- Long text items narrow the gap between Brame and GZIP.
- Brame almost always beats GZIP.
- For this test, GZIP is set to its maximum Level 9 compression.
- This is the English Language version of Brame.
