SlipStream NOW!Imaging, an optional add-on product, further enhances the Internet browsing experience, enabling your subscribers to view higher resolution images and increasingly image-rich pages faster. SlipStream NOW!Imaging combines the power of SlipStream's image compression techniques with newly developed concurrent image delivery to render all image data on Web pages simultaneously. As a result, fully usable Web pages appear almost immediately, while the images on the page then quickly and progressively reach maximum quality as users view the page.
The Most Efficient Web Page Delivery
NOW!Imaging 2.0 introduces Concurrent Object Delivery, which provides an optimized method for delivering complete Web pages concurrently and quickly.
Web pages are made up of multiple elements such as text, graphics (GIF, JPEG, PNG), scripts, CSS, Macromedia Flash™ and others. The method of downloading Web pages using traditional HTTP includes initiating an HTTP connection and then sending an HTTP request for each object individually and sequentially; the next request is sent only after the previous request is completely received. This is particularly problematic for high latency and low bandwidth networks resulting in significant delays.
NOW!Imaging 2.0's Concurrent Object Delivery feature addresses this challenge by sending multiple HTTP requests concurrently. This results in improved page download times and a faster experience for nearly all users, especially for those users on high latency and poor quality networks.
SlipStream SP6.0 with NOW!Imaging 2.0 results in the fastest Web acceleration and highest image quality ever experienced! Now, there's no need to keep your subscribers waiting!
