  • Web acceleration solutions, most especially for dial-up users
  • Multi-media messaging platforms
  • Mobile enterprise gateway and application platforms
  • Other wireless application platforms
  • Other performance enhancement products for web applications

How it Works

The Acceleration Engine can be used with or without AirZip client software. Without AirZip software on the client device, the Acceleration Engine uses intelligent optimization heuristics to provide 50-100% better acceleration of JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, and BMP image files with minimal quality loss.

With AirZip software available on the client device, the Acceleration Engine will use AirZip's proprietary patented image format, AZV, for up to 400% faster image delivery. The AZV format also renders images faster on the receiving device than other image standards.

The AirZip Engine is a "thread-safe" C++ library that simplifies the integration of AirZip's breakthrough, patented image acceleration technology into any application server.

For embedded applications, the AirZip Compression Engine SDK provides encode/decode libraries for AirZip's compressed image format for a wide range of applications.
