CRIO is in between the Origin and the CDN and will create highly optimized images for all possible devices (desktop, mobiles, tablets,…) using only a single, high quality, master image from your Origin.
CRIO detects your visitor’s browser window size and/or user agent and automatically creates, caches and delivers through the CDN, appropriate re-scaled versions of web page’s embedded HTML images. This service will instantaneously reduce current needs in infrastructure and allow delivering the optimum Web experience to your online customers, for any device.
Today web and mobile applications require several versions of the same image for different contexts and devices. At the same time, visitor’s expectations for richer and more engaging content rise everyday, leading to a lower agility and increased complexity.
Origin based images manipulation, storage and delivery is often costly, not flexible and slow.
Knowing that today, the average webpage size is close to 2MB and increasing, that images often represent 75% of the size, Lighthouse launched CRIO to provide our customers with a simple, easy to manage and lightning fast Images optimization solution.
Best practices for using high quality images will help you to increase your conversion rates.
