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, 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.
For WordPress site administrators, deploying ImageEngine is even easier. Just install the ImageEngine Plugin, obtain an ImageEngine application token, and insert it into the Plugin settings. The Plugin will automatically optimize all images on your WordPress site and deliver performance improvement.
ImageEngine scales with you. We deliver billions of images for customers around the world, so we can handle the traffic your sites demand. Users of ImageEngine Lite do not incur monthly charges, but they are limited to individual original images no larger than 2 MB. Likewise, ImageEngine Lite users are limited to a monthly maximum of 5 GB of data transfers, including inbound and outbound traffic. **You will be notified by email when you approach your 5GB limit. If no action is taken, then a watermark will be applied to your images.
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.
