Colour managed dynamic image rendering at scale

The Quru Image Server (QIS) is the image server of choice for serious business demands, delivering perfect detailed images, cost effectively, at scale.

QIS makes it easy to manage thousands of images at the same time across any device. Consumers quickly abandon websites that don’t meet their high expectations and brands that sell a high number of products or manage significant collections, have to manage very large numbers of images every day. If the images are not crystal clear on any device, customers will move on and opportunities will be lost.

Managing large numbers of images is challenging – the mix of formats, shapes, resolutions, devices – and can be expensive. Bonhams, a world leading fine art and antiques auctioneer, manage their library of 1M+ images using QIS to replace existing systems that were defeated by the scale of the challenge.

Image serving at scale

QIS ensures you deliver the best brand image experience to your customers every time and on any device. It has been designed to meet the needs of brands with thousands of images needing to be changed frequently.

The stand-alone, open source based solution cuts the time and cost of managing and manipulating thousands of images every day.  QIS makes it easy to take a single image and adapt it for multiple use. It can take a fully colour managed high-res image, ready for high quality printing, down to a thumbnail for use on a smartphone - instantly.

Better management of HTML 5 responsive images

With QIS it’s easy to manage HTML 5 images without having to manually resize or store multiple versions of the same image.

Simply upload a single high resolution image and instruct the browser to download whichever image is appropriate for the size of device. Using different URLs, you can then request scaled and cropped versions without any modifications to the original image.
