Multimedia Web services constitute a considerable load on Internet bandwidth and on Web servers. With the increasing demand of multimedia Web services, the need to maintain a respectable QoS is a major concern for multimedia Web services' providers. Binary data compression, lossy and lossless, increases performance gain and maintains QoS, at large and small-scale implementations. At the expense of increased CPU processing time, data compression provides a reliable solution to sustain QoS parameters such as response time, download time and server delay where bandwidth is limited.
