Announcing the OpenText™ TeamSite Cloudinary Connector from Klish Group

OpenText™ TeamSite – Cloudinary Plugin

Tired of depending on other teams or software to create assets in multiple sizes for your responsive web site?

Does importing asset files into TeamSite slow down your web content publishing?

Klish Group is pleased to introduce the OpenText TM TeamSite – Cloudinary connector. Customers of the OpenText TM TeamSite web content management platform can now browse and select images in the same way they always have. Authors can just browse and select the image they want to use and Cloudinary will automatically deliver it in the optimal format and quality to the customer requesting it.

Common Pain Points for Responsive Web sites managed in TeamSite:

  • Authors browse multiple times to select optimal images for each target viewport (Desktop, Tablet, Mobile are common)
  • Resizing and adjusting images requires Adobe Photoshop, third-party services or additional staffed resources
  • A copy of each viewport specific image is stored on both the content management and customer facing web servers
  • Customer Device and network connection detection for optimal delivery requires purchasing additional CDN services such as Akamai

Benefits of Integrating with Cloudinary:

  • Authors only need to browse and select the source image once, and Cloudinary handles the image resizing dynamically per each customer request.
  • Using Cloudinary’s artificial intelligence capabilities, images can be cropped and areas of interest are detected automatically without authors having to painstaking manipulate each image for each viewport.

  • Optimal customer experience as the least amount of bandwidth will be used to deliver the highest quality version, with no perceptually discernible degradation of quality, of the requested image based on the device, network connection speed and location.

Using Cloudinary within TeamSite:

  • Select Cloudinary assets from:
    • SitePublisher/Experience Studio component image datums
    • TinyMCE Rich Text fields
    • Forms Publisher/Data Capture Template fields
  • Dynamically pull in asset metadata (i.e. Alt Text) from Cloudinary to TeamSite on image selection

Transitioning JPEG-Based to JPEG XL-Based Images for Web Platforms

When the JPEG codec was being developed in the late 1980s, no standardized, lossy image-compression formats existed. JPEG became ready at exactly the right time in 1992, when the World Wide Web and digital cameras were about to become a thing. The introduction of HTML’s <img> tag in 1995 ensured the recognition of JPEG as the web format—at least for photographs. During the 1990s, digital cameras replaced analog ones and, given the limited memory capacities of that era, JPEG became the standard format for photography, especially for consumer-grade cameras.

Amplify Your Jamstack With Cloudinary Video

Also, you can efficiently configure their back ends, connect them to your app with just a few lines of code, and deploy static web apps in only three steps. Historically, because of their performance issues, managing images and videos is a daunting challenge for developers.
