  • Easy Integration

    Customers can integrate and have ImageEngine optimizing their entire website within minutes. Customers can deploy using CNAME DNS records, plug-ins, or URL prefixing. ImageEngine can pull content stored from their current location, with no additional uploading required. As an image CDN, customers can continue to use their existing CDN for non-image traffic, and route only images to ImageEngine for superior performance.

  • Proactive Device Detection

    The key to delivering an optimized image payload is quick and accurate mobile device detection. ImageEngine is the only mobile optimizer solution on the market that uses proactive mobile device detection from WURFL® by ScientiaMobile. ImageEngine automatically adapts and delivers an image that is the optimal size, compression, and format for the device. Because of device detection, ImageEngine is 46% more effective than its closest image device optimizer management competitor.

  • Automatic Compression and Resizing

    ImageEngine adapts the original image based on the specific requesting device. It automatically compresses, resizes, and changes format to generate an optimized image. JPG, JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, BMP, GIF, PNG, and WEBP formats are supported. Typically, images are reduced by more than 60% for both desktop and mobile devices, with no discernible degradation in visual quality.

    Since ImageEngine automatically adapts images, enterprises can eliminate unnecessary resizing processes and additional programming labor. In most cases, enterprises save 90% of the time and labor, freeing up employees to work on more strategic projects.

    Client Hints is an emerging standard, spearheaded by Google, which enables the browser to append information about how an image should be displayed, such as size and device pixel ratio. ImageEngine  does not rely on Client Hints, but can use this information if it is available. With the addition of WURFL data, ImageEngine has all information needed to produce an optimal result based on how and where a specific image is displayed.

  • World-Class CDN Speed

    ImageEngine has powerful POPs strategically positioned around the globe to serve viewers – especially mobile ones. This advanced image CDN architecture has device-aware edge servers. With this device intelligence, ImageEngine delivers optimized images from the network’s edge cache 98% of the time. This quick CDN response means blazingly fast load times for viewers. And the architecture is robust enough to deliver billions of images to viewers around the world.

    Even if you have an existing CDN relationship, ImageEngine can still optimize your images. You can easily combine ImageEngine and any CDN either by putting ImageEngine in front of, or behind, your CDN.

  • Improved Performance Equals CDN Savings

    ImageEngine measures an enterprise’s image payload after dramatically reducing it. This optimized payload is called “Smart Bytes.” Unlike other CDNs and image platforms, ImageEngine customers pay for only this reduced Smart Bytes payload. Combining Smart Bytes pricing with ImageEngine’s superior performance generates significant savings for customers. Learn more about the ROI for ImageEngine. And see why ImageEngine is a great alternative to Cloudinary, Akamai, and Fastly.

  • Smart Bytes Guarantee

    ScientiaMobile backs up ImageEngine with a performance guarantee. If ImageEngine does not generate more than a 40% reduction in total image payload, then ScientiaMobile will provide one free month of ImageEngine service.

  • Optimizing Responsive Images

    With Responsive Images, developers still need different versions (sizes, formats, crops) of the image to exist. For this, you can use ImageEngine. This way, you don’t have to create 5-10 versions of an image. Actually, when in Responsive Images syntax you’ll have to write 10-12 lines with reference to images, you only need one references with ImageEngine because the built in device detection.

    Learn more about how ImageEngine is a more elegant, streamlined, and faster alternative to Responsive Images. Or watch our COO Steve Kamerman explain why your images are loading slowly and how to fix it.
