Transform multimedia in the Oracle Database and Oracle APEX!

APEX Media Extension (AME) makes it easy to process or convert media before or after it is stored in the Oracle Database.

Using our Oracle Application Express (APEX) plug-in, PL/SQL API, and REST API you can:

why

Using Oracle Intermedia or Oracle Multimedia?

APEX Media Extension is a seamless alternative to Oracle Multimedia

Starting in Oracle Database 18c, Oracle Multimedia is deprecated and is desupported in Oracle Database 19c. In their documentation, Oracle recommends that you store multimedia content in SecureFiles LOBs and use open source or third-party products for image processing and conversion.

APEX Plug-in

We love Oracle Application Express (APEX), so in order to make APEX Media Extension (AME) super easy to integrate into your APEX applications, we offer an APEX plug-in.

Simply drag and drop your media files and any operations you have specified in the attributes of the plug-in are handled automatically, in your browser before the media is uploaded to the database.

PL/SQL API

If you have media stored in the database that you need to transform, try our powerful PL/SQL API. The API contains a rich set of features that make it simple to manipulate just one file or perform bulk operations.

All features, including resizing, compressing, cropping, adding multiple watermarks or overlays and reading media metadata are available to be used on the media stored in your database.

* A conversion is a request to our server for manipulation of media.

Server location: Currently our servers are located in Dublin, but other data centers will follow shortly.

VAT: Prices listed exclude VAT. If located in Belgium, 21% VAT will be added to your purchase. Otherwise, VAT is only applied if located within the EU but you do not have a VAT number.

Security: By using https all traffic between your server and ours is encrypted. On our server the data is un-encrypted in memory, because we need to do the merge of the template with the data. This un-encrypted state is only for the duration of the merge, no data is saved on our servers. The resulting file is sent back encrypted again.

APEX Media Extension runs on your own local server (Linux, Windows, OSX). One time license fee, optional yearly maintenance and support contract from 2nd year onwards (1st year included in license fee).

Each license pacakge includes the ability to run AME on 2 servers (machine ids) so that you can set one as the fail-over for the other. You can install AME on a machine which can be reached by your different environments (DEV, TEST, QA, PROD) or install AME on different machines to separate the environments. There's also the option to go with an Enterprise version which means you can install APEX Media Extension on many different servers (6 by default, but on request we can agree on more).

What some of our clients say about using AME
“After the great success we have had with APEX Office Print, we were delighted when we heard that United Codes were releasing APEX Media Extension as a replacement for Oracle Intermedia (due to its de-support in Oracle 19). It was a very straightforward code re-work for us and within a few hours we were successfully merging and resizing images using AME. We have been live on AME for several weeks, processing several thousand images a day and are seeing performance improvements over Oracle Intermedia. As we had experienced with AOP, the level of support we received has been fantastic! We cannot recommend AME enough."
