Advanced API Tools

Zype's APIs provide end-to-end support for creating, managing, broadcasting and archiving live feeds. All functionality availabilty in the Playout 2.0 UI is driven by the Playout 2.0 API architecture.

Our developer-first approach makes it easy to connect into existing legacy systems and shape Playout 2.0 to your specific use case by creating custom workflows. Our APIs also provide full access to encoder management so you can manage the entire live broadcast lifecycle.


Zype's APIs are built by developers, for developers.
