E-commerce websites need image acceleration to improve the mobile experience and execute an omni-channel strategy. Now, Magento platform users can use the ImageEngine Plug-in and improve the speed of their site by almost 60%. ImageEngine is the only service that combines proactive device detection, with real-time resizing, and CDN delivery for the entire e-commerce site. Start a trial. We will supply you with a token and plug-in package, and you will see how easy it is.
Check out our video. ImageEngine is an image CDN that combines three tools into an easy-to-use service. It combines 1) Automatic Device Detection with 2) Image Resizing and 3) a Content Delivery Network (CDN). The ImageEngine for Magento plug in will automatically prefix your image source URLs with your ImageEngine account token. From there, we will automatically resize and deliver. ImageEngine combines image resizing, cropping and compression, with ScientiaMobile’s WURFL mobile device intelligence, and quickly delivers cached images via our image CDN. It also provides full reporting on the performance savings, which frequently results in over 60% reduction of payload size. For more information, see our getting started guide.
Once you sign up for a trial account, you can use the full commercial version of ImageEngine for 30 days.
ImageEngine delivers an image that is automatically optimized based on the device requesting the image. WURFL detects each device’s model and critical capabilities, including its screen dimensions and supported formats. It then automatically compresses, resizes, and changes format to generate an optimized. JPG, JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, BMP, GIF, PNG, and WEBP formats are supported.
Designers can use ImageEngine’s setting parameters to explicitly control the resizing percent or format conversion for the output image.
ImageEngine supports several methods that automatically resize an image to fit within specified width and height. These methods (box, letterbox, cropbox, stretch) take different approaches to resizing and cropping to make the image fit.
ScientiaMobile has partnered with nuu:bit to provide cutting edge speed, security, reliability, and reporting. ImageEngine leverages nuu:bit’s open-edge server architecture to push mobile device detection, optimization, and caching as close to the end-user as possible. The result is a blazingly fast image CDN. And our CDN is a seamless part of the ImageEngine service, not an additional fee or service requiring more integration work.
ImageEngine scales with you. We deliver billions of images for customers around the world, so we can handle the traffic your sites demand.
The ImageEngine license supports different commercial use scenarios (single and multiple domains, enterprise-wide use, intranets, and OEM arrangements). ScientiaMobile can extend pricing to support non-standard commercial agreements that require additional domains (e.g. OEM). Support of CNAME and customer SSL certificates requires a non-standard agreement. Please contact our sales for these arrangements.
If ImageEngine users want to crop an image in using specific dimensions, then they can use setting parameters to control this. Likewise, ImageEngine supports various angles of rotation.
ImageEngine supports developers who are using Client Hints to control image resizing. ImageEngine can optimize images based on Client Hints such as DPR (device pixel ratio), Viewport-Width, and Width (device display width).
As ImageEngine customers, you can configure the Domain Name Server (DNS) using the CNAME function to rename the ImageEngine service to reflect your own domain/hostname. This renaming of the ImageEngine service allows you to treat the service as if it was managed locally within your infrastructure. This allows for improved caching so ImageEngine cookies will not be presented as third-party cookies. Likewise ImageEngine customers can upload their own SSL certificates through their customer vault. Using these certificates, ImageEngine can use HTTPS to serve multiple domains via the CNAME alias. Both of these features require a non-standard agreement. Please contact our sales for these arrangements.
ImageEngine users receive the same high level of support as other ScientiaMobile commercial products. Customers can submit priority tickets through our enterprise support portal. In addition, users can post and access the responses found on the on the ScientiaMobile customer support forum.
