CREATE AWESOME APPLICATIONS LEVERAGING THE POWER OF WORLD CLASS IMAGE TRACKING.

You are a solution builder. You know your market, your customers and their unique needs. We have built one of the leading systems for image discovery on the web. We run hundreds of servers to crawl millions of pages and analyze massive amounts of pictures for you.

We empower you to write software drawing on the full benefits of the PIXRAY engine, without having to worry about the complexity of image tracking. You just write beautiful code.

A CONSTANT STREAM OF RELEVANT RESULTS

Many application builders take the assumed easy and cheap way of just scraping reverse image search results from existing public search engines like Google, Yandex or Bing, which may constitute a TOS violation of these sites. The limitations of this approach lead to unreliable and non-exhaustive results that may cover only a fraction of the relevant findings. The PIXRAY Connect API gives you access to a constant stream of relevant results that include matches with even strongest deformations of your original search pictures, like cropping, resizing, color changes, creation of collages, addition of logos or any combination thereof. Using our engine frees gives you first-rate result quality without the legal insecurity of a scraping approach.

THE PIXRAY Connect API

Our simple API allows you to easily upload pictures to the search, administer whitelists and retrieve findings. We offer flat-fee pricing or pay-per-finding based pricing. Before you consume a finding in a pay-per-finding model, you can check some meta data about the finding that allow you to check whether you already know the finding from other sources and if the finding is an actual match (i.e. no false positive finding). This is important because we do not want you to have to pay for improper findings or findings that you already know.

We provide an easy to use REST API that supports the following functionality

  • upload search images to the search engine
  • organize search images into groups
  • administer whitelists for image groups so that you do not receive findings on specified domains or top level domains
  • retrieve meta data of findings before consuming a finding, including search picture ID, md5 hashed picture and page URLs, the top level domain (TLD) of the finding, a confidence score for the match, a binary stream of the found picture
  • retrieve a finding’s full data set including search picture ID, picture and page URLs and the matching picture’s data

TWO PRICING MODELS THAT FIT
YOUR NEEDS

The PIXRAY Connect Image Search API pricing comes in two flavors:

LITE & ENTERPRISE

LITE

The Lite pricing model is intended for small upcoming teams still developing their market and for companies with low volumes of search pictures and a low or unpredictable number of findings.

The Lite pricing model is characterized by a low monthly base fee and a fee per consumed finding. The Lite pricing gives you full control of pricing as you can control the number of findings you consume*.

*A finding counts as consumed when all information about a finding is retrieved. Before the consumption of a finding an API client may vet the finding by retrieving information like the picture id, a resized version of the finding, the md5 sum of the found picture, checksums calculated on picture – URLs and hostnames. By this the client can ensure that only those findings are consumed that are correct, relevant and not previously known (the latter can be achieved by comparing with MD5 – sums of findings already known to the client through other search approaches).

ENTERPRISE

The Enterprise pricing model is intended for established players with high volumes of search pictures and high volumes of search results.

The Enterprise model gives you a fixed monthly price that is independent of the number of findings you consume through the API. This makes it the ideal choice for customers that look to precisely forecast their monthly costs independent of the number of findings consumed.
