Multicam Systems has expanded the feature set of the Application Programming Interface (API) for its all-in-one video production systems.
Providing third-party application developers the tools to integrate their products with Multicam’s solutions, the API also lets integrators and customers with in-house software development capabilities create their own interfaces to control Multicam’s systems and customize their workflows.
Based on the Representational State Transfer (REST) protocol, the API allows every aspect of the systems — including configuring PTZ camera presets, switching, recording, streaming, and applying different scenes and titles — to be controlled remotely across a network.
Many third-party hardware and software solutions — from automation and playout systems to dedicated control surfaces — are already compatible with the REST-based API, enabling Multicam solutions to be easily integrated into existing workflows with only minor configuration or programming effort on the controlling devices.
The enhanced API supports all Multicam broadcast and professional AV solutions, including the Multicam Radio Visual Radio platform for broadcasters. Multicam Systems says its Multicam Radio combines server and switching hardware with feature-rich software that brings together Artificial Intelligence (AI) for PTZ camera shot selection, speaker detection, automated graphics, and live streaming and podcasting capabilities.
The platform also integrates with audio consoles and automation systems for video acquisition, mixing and playout, with fully automated, semi-automated and manual operation options.
