IOWA CITY, Iowa - Feb. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- (Iowa City) - Iowa City based data services company, Mazira LLC, released their first public facing API on MaShape.  The image rasterizer API ( allows users to send the service a PDF document and responds with an image of the document. The service is being offered to programmers free of charge for resolutions up to 120 dpi.

Ross Johnson, CTO and Mastermind at Mazira, said that the service was being released in response to numerous requests from software developers. “A lot of data is stored in documents and vector graphic formats, such as PDF, but a number of processes require a rasterized image format such as PNG. Our service allows programmers all over the world to do this processing at scale in as little as one line of code,” said Johnson.

The service which was launched on cloud API market place MaShape (, will initially be free. The company plans to launch a paid version of the service with additional options such as higher resolutions. Also in the hopper are plans for the service to accept other formats such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and web pages.

Anith Mathai, CEO Mazira, says that the launch is in line with Mazira’s roadmap to launch high demand data transformation services. “By democratizing our API services and making them accessible to developers, we are essentially creating a software ecosystem that allows small businesses to focus on their core competency by reusing our tried-and-tested software,” said Mathai. “The launch of the rasterizer service is the first in a series of upcoming public APIs from Mazira.”

Upcoming API releases include a Natural Language Processing (NLP) package, an Optical Character Recognition engine, and a combined document search and storage system. All of this technology is already in use internally at Mazira, which organizes terabytes of data for businesses, but giving access to outside developers is a new push. By launching the API services on the MaShape platform, the technology is accessible to a worldwide audience. Consumers can expect the same high level of quality, fast responses and service uptimes Mazira has delivered in the past.

“This is only the beginning,” added Johnson.  “Having public APIs allows us to reach the widest audience with our battle-tested technology. Developers now have direct access to our high speed algorithms and high quality servers.”
