Get automated optimizations for images, videos, and animated GIFs.
Akamai Image and Video Manager comes out of the box ready to help developers optimize images, videos, and animated GIFs to deliver great web experiences. Specifically, here are five Image and Video Manager capabilities that are especially popular with developers:
Get creative with images via code
With Image and Video Manager, you can chain together transformations on-the-fly with Query String Parameters (QSPs) and be as creative as you want to be with images using code.
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.
Simplify the process of responsive web design (RWD)
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.
