With the release of our full media management suites, we here at Twistage felt it was appropriate to dive a little deeper into our platform and show some of the new features to the world. Today we’ll take a look at our Image Management Console.
Following the product model that made our video management system so open and flexible, Twistage has developed the APIs and product feature sets for custom image management and publishing. On a macro level the system offers up the ability to ingest, store, organize, publish and deliver images in any format or through any feed reader desired. On a micro level we offer image manipulation tools and detailed API documentation to remotely manage and organize your image assets and deliver them through multiple gallery apps found across the internet. As is always the case with the Twistage product, we view our image management platform as a robust back-end engine to power your image assets and fit seamlessly into your existing workflow.
Twistage allows publishers to organize their image assets into appropriate galleries and also organize them by tag, mirroring our popular approach to online video management. The galleries are then able to be published in any number of gallery widgets through our feed translation tool. Across the web different image gallery widgets (cool iris, polaroid gallery, flashbox, etc.) require different feeds to populate their data. Any image gallery in the Twistage system is able to be distributed in a variety of feeds across the web, making it simple to plug into existing systems where your IT budget might have already been allocated, as well as into any number of 3rd-party galleries, RSS readers, and even mobile feed services.
Twistage’s new image manipulation feature sets give clients the ability to crop, resize, rotate and watermark their image assets.
This robust functionality can be acheived in console using a simple point and click mechanism, but also can be handled remotely via the Twistage API or automatically based on various business rules. Twistage supports multiple watermarks for separate brands, changes can be applied on an individual or gallery level, and the image manipulation feature set gives companies all the tools necessary to make their images look and feel exactly as they want.
More importantly, this is all available via our SaaS model so that images are able to be manipulated and managed anywhere there’s an internet connection to work with. Prep work is brought to a minimum and production work is drastically reduced.
Want to see how your images are doing? Use the Twistage analytics tool to understand which images are being viewed, where they’re being viewed, and who’s viewing them. And as always, with every Twistage service, we approach analytics through a layer of abstraction, letting you choose where you want to analyze your data. Via our APIs we allow you to check viewing data remotely or in-console.
These are just a few of the variety of features we offer our image clients. Please contact us and we’d be happy to walk you through the platform and see how our image manipulation and management tool best complements your images and other media offerings.
