What is a jbig file?

JBIG is a filename extension created by the Joint Bi-Level Image Experts Group (JBIG). The JBIG standard features lossless image compression for bi-level images, most commonly for black-and-white, gray scale or bi-color faxes. The compression ratio of scanned line art or text can be 50% greater than the Fax Groups 3 and 4 files. In computer generated text images, JBIG boasts a 500% increase in compression efficiency. JBIG files, while making great strides over Group 3 and Group 4 standards, do not provide open source codecs, as some IBM algorithms are incorporated.With the appropriate software, JBG files can be converted to JPG and PNG files.
