Esri’s LAS Optimizer has been updated to include support for parallel decompression. The initial version supported parallel processing when going from LAS to Optimized LAS, but the other direction, going back to LAS, was single threaded. It’s now parallel in both directions. This significantly decreases the time it takes to decompress the files and is worth the update.
