asymmetric compression

In asymmetric compression, different methods are used for compression and decompression

. Asymmetric compression therefore requires more computing power for compression than for decompression.

Asymmetric compression is typically used where media information is stored, such as on CD-ROMs. The production effort for the compression is relatively high, but the decompression is done with low-cost techniques.
