Radar image pixel limit?

Hello, we're evaluating your API for a possible inclusion in our internal product. It seems like there is a limit on the size of an image returned by your service. When trying to request animated radar image for full screen 1920 x 910 in my case, I get 504 (Gateway Time-out). While reducing the image size works, it does not solve the issue as most users will run our application in full screen mode. 

Please advise if there is any other way to get an image with large resolution via single request other than splitting the screen into several lat/long areas and sending multiple requests to your server. This method would be absolutely undesirable.

Thank you.

There is a max size where the code will fail, but its not a defined max size and more of a by product of the limits within the code.  You can try playing with the size and also the number of frames if you are doing an animation.
