Team imgix

We’re passionate about building the future of visual media processing and delivery on the Internet.

Our Mission

The internet isn’t just for desktop computers anymore. The explosion of tablets, mobile phones, televisions, smart watches, cars, VR, and every other electronic medium imaginable means that predicting the context in which your content will be viewed is effectively impossible.

For images and videos, this presents a major problem, because they require optimization specific to the context to display quickly and with high quality—both of which are key metrics for engagement and conversion.

imgix solves the context problem by making all of your visual assets responsive and enabling on-the-fly manipulation, while improving delivery speed.

Delivering the optimal version of an image or video for a given context has a dramatic impact on how fast your website or application loads and therefore how your users perceive you. imgix gives you the power and flexibility of responsive design without having to build the complex infrastructure required to support them. Similarly, it provides powerful asset manipulation capabilities without the need to pre-render or create multiple versions of an asset.

Simply configure where your visual assets live, and access them at the domain we provide. Getting started is easy.
