Built from the ground up for flexibility and rapid enhancement, pijaz offers the most efficient and comprehensive media rendering solution available.

Pijaz is a cloud-based SaaS (software as a service) platform that produces amazing, personalized Adobe Photoshop-quality image compositions -- fast. Without depending on Adobe creation or viewing solutions such as Adobe Flash or Adobe Photoshop, pijaz combines a wide variety of specialized visual effects for both preview and full-resolution media to deliver interactive, engaging and personalized experiences on any browser – including mobile.

Key differentiators:

The Pijaz platform is:

Fast. Written in highly optimized C++, it leaves other image rendering solutions in the dust. Small images take longer to deliver than to render. A typical personalized image under 400 X 400 pixels can be rendered in under 50ms. Even highly complex compositions at high resolution typically are rendered in less than 1 second.

Configurable. Built with an abstraction of processing widgets that are wired together, developers can easily design workflows to combine existing visual effects in novel ways, as well as introduce brand new effects.

Built for Mobile. The fast, server-side rendering permits users on even low-powered mobile devices to create and share stunning, personalized images without annoying delays.

Pijaz’s cloud-based platform easily scales to meet demanding performance and production needs.
