Single purpose API
XML, JSON, REST
Even the most modern responsive websites often struggle with selecting image resolutions that best match the various user devices. They typically have to compromise on either the image dimensions, number of images created, or even worse, just simply use a single image with the largest resolution.
Video is an increasingly important component for websites and apps, as consumer demand for and consumption of video content is growing. Companies still pre-transcoding video or working with in-house transcoding systems may want to consider cloud-based API solutions such as Cloudinary.
ProgrammableWeb initially covered Cloudinary in 2012 as it was a burgeoning startup in the quickly growing cloud community. Today, Cloudinary announced a host of new image related add-ons that should help Cloudinary expand its offering and user base. Prior to the announcement, we caught up with Cloudinary CEO, Itai Lahan, to learn more.
