PRESENTATION: Simple Image Presentation Interface - a versatile high-performance open source IIIF-server (Room 2)

The Simple Image Presentation Interface (SIPI) is a versatile, high-performance open source (*) server written in C++ that is fully IIIF compliant. It adds interesting features that are important for the practical deployment of an IIIF server: incorporates the conversion of major image formats into each other (TIFF, J2K, PNG, JPEG), which can be used to convert files into (lossless) J2K images; preserves most metadata (IPTC, EXIF, XMP, ICC profiles) through all conversions; able to deal with and process ICC color profiles (it may on-the-fly convert a J2K-image with an AdobeRGB profile into a JPEG with standard sRGB profile); integrates the Lua scripting language for pre-flight and after-flight processing; implements JSON web tokens (JWT) for authentication. Together with Lua it allows for IIIF conforming authentication; includes a small-footprint web server; supports both http and hits using OpenSSL; and implements caching scheme relying on canonical IIIF-URL's. These and more features make SIPI a very attractive IIIF conforming media server for institutions dealing with large amounts of images. The sources and manual are available on GitHub (https://github.com/dhlab-basel/Sipi). (*) In order to compile the SIPI source with J2K support a valid Kakadu license is required since unfortunately Kakadu is not open source. However binary packages will be provided for most linux variants and OS X as well as docker images.
