ISO 23504 (PDF/R)

ISO 23504-1:2020 Document management applications — Raster image transport and storage — Part 1: Use of ISO 32000 (PDF/R-1) defines a strict subset of ISO 32000 suitable for storage, transport and exchange of multi-page raster-image documents, including (but not limited to) scanned documents. As an official subset of PDF, PDF/R takes advantage of widespread support for viewing, printing and processing PDF files. As a narrowly restricted subset of PDF, PDF/R is much simpler to generate and interpret than conventional PDF files, allowing it to replace the TIFF and JPEG image file formats for capture and delivery of scanner output. PDF/R is optimized for creation by very low-powered embedded devices such as scanners. PDF/R provides the portability of PDF while offering the core functionality of TIFF. Bitonal, grayscale and RGB images are supported. Compression options include JPEG, lossless CCITT Group 4 Fax and uncompressed.

PDF/R is the official ISO version of the PDF Association's PDF/Raster 1.0 specification that was jointly developed with TWAIN. Note that PDF/R includes some wording updates, corrections and clarifications from PDF/Raster 1.0 as a result of detailed reviews by ISO subject matter experts.
