Transcoding refers to the on-the-fly conversion of encoded data. HylaFAX supports transcoding of received facsimile so that received documents can be stored in files using an optimal compression algorithm. If the RecvDataFormat configuration parameter is set it defines the format for writing received facsimile data, one of: "1-D MR", "2-D MR", "2-D MMR", or "adaptive". An "adaptive" format is the default; it causes the received data to be written using the data format negotiated by the sender and receiver. Using

RecvDataFormat: "2-D MMR"

gives the most space-efficient data format. Note that RecvDataFormat defines the encoding of the page data, not the file format: this is always TIFF.
