Your customers demand fast and engaging digital experiences. Image Manager intelligently optimizes both images and videos with the combination of quality, format, and size that is best suited for every device and browser. Remove the costs and headaches associated with creating, storing, and managing derivative assets. Deliver all derivative renditions at the Edge for high-quality, engaging web and mobile experiences that are fast and easier to manage.
High-quality images and videos are proven to be effective in driving better engagement online, but web performance often gets bogged down by digital assets that are too heavy. Reduce bytes for images, videos, and animated GIFs across desktop, mobile, and apps for lighter pages that lead to better site performance and higher customer engagement.
Marketers and visual design teams spend too much time creating derivative renditions of a single asset, not to mention the effort by developers to solve the puzzle of when to deliver the right version for each and every user. Automate the manual effort to create, transform, and deliver derivative assets so new and updated content can be quickly published at the speed of business.
All businesses must spend wisely and find opportunities to limit the rising cost of storage and delivery. With Image Manager, organizations only need to store the pristine assets. Offload and cache all derivative versions to the cloud for simplified publishing workflows that are flexible, cost-effective, and operationally efficient.
In light of increasing mobile traffic, the ability to prevent over-downloading and maximize compression levels without sacrificing visual quality is critical. Image Manager intelligently optimizes both images and videos for the highest visual quality at the lowest bytes, so visitors are treated to digital experiences that are both beautiful and fast.
