Adapting Your Media Across Multiple Devices

Media providers must consider differences between devices (phones, laptops, tablets, etc.) when delivering content: not only their screen size but also their bandwidth and processing capabilities. Liferay Portal’s Adaptive Media app allows administrators to control image quality and dynamically adjusts uploaded media to best fit the screen being used.

Adaptive Media integrates with Documents and Media, Blogs, and Web Content. It generates a set of images for use on various screens. When the content is accessed, Adaptive Media checks the screen type and resolution and selects appropriate the appropriate image. You can find the Adaptive Media app on Liferay Marketplace, for Liferay Portal CE 7.0 and Liferay DXP.

In this section, you’ll learn how to manage and use Adaptive Media in Liferay Portal.
