Onymos Media

Managing images and videos in today’s mobile apps is time-consuming and thankless. The Onymos Media Component is the toolkit to make it easy.

Compression done rightOnymos Media component offers one of the best compression algorithms in the market for both photos and videos. Quality compromises are kept at the minimum when optimizing file sizes.

Consistency across devicesOnymos Media component handles various nuances of different devices – like sub-sampling issues on some older devices where image appears squeezed or have black-bands, orientation issues of landscape photo/video appearing in portrait style or vice-versa. The Onymos Media component also removes the issues when sharing photos and videos across iOS and Android devices – loss of quality, aspect ratio, etc.,

Server side – included.Onymos handles all configuration required at any of the top cloud providers (AWS, Azure or GCP). Flexibility is key – either select zero-touch Onymos Hosting or just provide access and configuration parameters to use your own cloud provider account. Don’t spend time trying to follow pages of documentation only to spend more time on maintenance when the cloud providers change their setup and/or API.
