At the heart of Lightning LEN is a wide range of highly optimised, high performance algorithms for implementing the standard compression methods required to create LEN raster files. These along with the multi-threading capabilities make Lightning LEN the output plugin of choice for the most demanding users and applications.
Taking advantage of the latest multi-core CPUs, Lightning LEN is multi-threaded so as to provide maximum performance on today’s hardware. This offers the highest performance possible, for last minute production of time critical jobs.
Lightning LEN provides the option to generate both Standard and Extended LEN files.
Lightning LEN provides the option to generate LEN files either in Intel (Little Endian) or Motorola (Big Endian) byte order.
Lightning LEN provides the option to compress the normal LEN data with Flate (ZIP) so as to produce smaller LEN files, with a user selectable compression level from 1 (fastest, but largest) to 9 (smallest, but slowest).
Lightning LEN provides numerous controls for conventional based naming and an extended set of template variables for template based naming.
In addition to per file post-processing, Lightning LEN also provides per job post-processing. This combined with the ability to place all output from a job into its own unique folder allows for sophisticated customisation by writing post- processing scripts to perform additional tasks.
