NAB 2018: Primestream To Launch Xchange Public API, Configuration Framework
Primestream announced that it will launch a new public API for Xchange and a new configuration framework at NAB 2018. The Xchange API enables customers to extend their use of the Xchange MAM with tight integration to other tools, increasing reach, functionality and flexibility. In addition, Primestream has added a new Framework for simplifying configurations across Xchange and FORK applications.
“Primestream solves customer problems with workflows built with our powerful toolset and with third party integration,” says Claudio Lisman, president and CEO of Primestream. “Our new API allows us to build tighter and more powerful integration across best-in-class tools, so our customers can build more powerful solutions.”
The Xchange API will enable users to enhance their broadcast workflows in many ways, such as:
- Tight interchange with AI engines capable to leveraging media and metadata to return complex deliverables
- Integrating with third-party applications to deliver IMF workflow
- Incorporating third-party work order systems to create projects in Xchange, for example, if a customer approves a new episode and assigns budget and personnel, the API can auto-create a project in Xchange to create a container for the media being shot and produced
- Rights management systems can leverage the API to search and update media and its metadata
In addition, Primestream has simplified and centralized configuration and licensing with a new Configuration Framework featuring an on-boarding/wizard configuration, the ability to install and configure the system from a central location, reduced clicks/windows to decrease the chance of error and a common UI experience across all products.
Visitors to the NAB booth SL12111 will be able to see demonstrations of the Configuration Framework and the latest versions of Xchange and FORK media management solutions. The Xchange API will be available at NAB 2018 and customers can request access to the APIs by visiting primestream.com/api
