Developer Webinar: Image Manager 4.0

Akamai Developer Webinar: Introducing Image Manager 4.0

July 12, 2018 by Jessica Mills

Short videos and high-resolution imagery can greatly enhance the user experience on your website, but they can also impact performance and complicate the management of your assets across web and mobile devices. We created Akamai Image Manager to meet this challenge, allowing developers and admins to seamlessly manage the delivery and optimization of website images.

With Akamai Image Manager 4.0, now officially in beta, we’ve taken it a step further: the new version automatically optimizes your videos as well as your images. Developers and admins can now upload short videos and let Image Manager do the work, seamlessly managing the delivery of video assets in the right file format and resolution for the end user’s device, browser, and OS, while automatically compressing to optimal size without sacrificing visual quality.

And this new functionality is in addition to Image Manager’s existing image magic, which deserves a recap in case you’d forgotten: with Image Manager you can create and deliver any variant image you need with a simple change of URL. These variants include changes in size parameters, background color changes, applying watermarks, and much more. In addition, Image Manager’s recently released media viewer provides a simplified viewer implementation with automatic optimization that means fewer hassles for you. The viewer is also easily customizable so you can fine-tune it for your needs, further streamlining your workflow.

These are just a few key highlights of what Image Manager can do for you, so be sure to join this live webinar to see technical demos on how to use Image Manager and how to implement these features today. Plus, you’ll hear what’s to come later this year (we promise some compelling goodies!). Join us on Thursday, July 26, 2018, at 10am PDT to learn more and ask questions of our product experts, live.
