Is it necessary to use SDL mobile to use Contextual Image Delivery while using DXA 1.3 JAVA? Is there a separate license fee for using contextual image delivery ? I am currently using SDL Tridion 2013 sp1.

  • In Web 8 Mobile is part of CD. Upgrade and you get it. With 2013 SP1 it is a paid add-on.

Contextual Image Delivery is part of SDL Mobile. But you don't have to use CID with DXA; without CID the DXA logic still provides server-side responsive images.

  • Thanks Rick. Is SDL mobile coming as part of SDL Tridion 2013 sp1 package ? Because earlier it was not part of SDL Tridion 2013 sp1 package. Commented Mar 4, 2016 at 4:56

    The SDL Tridion 2013 SP1 package didn't change. SDL Mobile is included in SDL Web 8, though. Commented Mar 4, 2016 at 10:52
