Video Optimization

Optimize and deliver your videos

Video content can greatly enhance your user’s experience, but it also can cause complications with the performance of your website. Image and Video Manager allows you to deliver high-quality, short-form video without worrying about byte size or bloated page or app weight. 

Just save your video (up to five minutes in length) at origin and then let Image and Video Manager do the work, automatically creating and delivering a derivative video with the correct bit-rates, resolutions, and formats based on the user’s device.

responsive web design

Simplify the process of responsive web design (RWD)

The innate complexities associated with RWD can make it a hassle to write logic that will send out the right image to the right end user. Image Manager solves this problem by automating optimal image delivery (e.g., auto-converting formats based on device, browser and/or OS) so that developers can focus on more critical tasks.

Easy-to-implement media viewer

With Image Manager's newly released media viewer, developers get a simplified viewer implementation that means one less hassle. 

In addition, images are automatically optimized within the viewer, and it's easily customizable so you can fine-tune it for your needs, further streamlining life for developers.

Exclusive perceptual-quality algorithm

Image Manager includes a perceptual-quality algorithm that means developers no longer need to worry about setting image-level quality. 

By automatically optimizing images for maximum perceived quality with minimum image weight, the algorithm lets developers relax knowing that images will be delivered at a specified quality that’s optimal for end users.
