Ultra-fast image processing engine

Modern and ultra-fast image processing engine

We are allergic to slow and legacy software so we wrote our image rendering engine from scratch. By using the latest technologies and advancements in real-time image processing we are now in absolute control over every pixel that flows through our system.

Pixaven API is up to 30x faster than ImageMagick and offers many more image operations than most command-line tools.
