Online MNP5 Data Compression Tool

In MNP5 Compression, codewords from 4 to 10 bits long are used to represent 8-bit message characters. Codewords are assigned dynamically to use the shortest codewords for the most frequently occuring message characters.

This online tool allows you to examine the workings of MNP5 compression.

OUTPUT: 623 bits = 101 codewords × 6.168 bits per character (average)

Compression Ratio = 623/808 = 0.771
