Your smart image processing and delivery solution from Berlin.
Our mission is to provide developers and content creators with the fastest and most accurate image processing technology.
Pixaven founder and CEO spent majority of his professional life dealing with images at Naspers companies, eBay and others. An exposure to legacy imaging software and its shortcomings, such as suboptimal performance or limited access to lower level image operations gave the spark to start working on a custom solution. He decided to implement the complete GPU-powered image rendering engine from scratch and coded a solution that became the foundation of what is now Pixaven.
Founded in 2016 in Berlin and emerging from stealth in 2019 we have built probably the most complete solution for all image processing tasks. Pixaven abstracts away the complexities associated with implementing a modern image processing pipeline into a simple REST API. We offer easy access to a great number of image transforming operations including — but not limited to — resizing, scaling, adjusting, cropping, stylizing, filtering or watermarking. On top of that, Pixaven offers optional Storage and Delivery addon and distributes your visuals over a global 65+ Tbps network.
Pixaven owns and operates a highly-available infrastructure comprised of a vast array of Apple hardware, dual-CPU Linux machines and enterprise-grade routers and switches.
In order to achieve great processing speeds and unmatched image quality, we make use of heavily optimized performance shaders that are applied to your images on the GPUs in real-time.
Operating a proprietary, GPU-enabled engine has a number of benefits. Even the most demanding image operations (such as blurring or face detection) take less than 50ms to complete. We are also in the absolute control over every pixel that flows through our system and can quickly implement custom feature requests that benefit all our users.
Our platform is deployed to bare-metal machines co-located in a Tier-3 datacenter in Frankfurt am Main — a location offering excellent connectivity to the world's largest internet exchange points and a wide range of carriers.
