Size of the files

In the current version of RERO DOC, viewing a document implies its complete download. For a fast (or acceptable) download time, it is recommended to reduce the file size. Although the maximum allowed size is 200 MB, such large documents should remain an exception.

The following table gives an idea of the download time for different file sizes and different types of connection:

File size   2MB   20MB   200MB (RERO DOC limit)
GPRS: mobile phone   5min   1h   10h
DSL Standard Min   12s   2min 30s   25min
Hotspot   7.5s   1min 30s   15min
DSL Standard Max   3s   36s   6min

Note:DSL speed estimation is based on a standard subscription (5000kbits/s maximum and 1200kbits/s minimum), GPRS (53kbits/s) and Hotspot 2000 kbits/s.

Multivio will relax this limitation.
