Vidispine API integrates with another workflow application by using a RESTful API. The term API is short for Application Programming Interface and defines common methods to communicate between systems.
These methods represent four ways to exchange information, and there is really not so much more needed.
- GET - we get a representation from a resource
POST - we are creating a new resource
PUT - we are updating a resource
DELETE - we are deleting a resource
To send commands to Vidispine API, there are several applications you can use. Postman and CURL are familiar to many users, but of course, standard programming languages like Python, Java, and similar can also be used to configure Vidispine API in the same way programmatically. This way, your in-house developed system can communicate to and use the Vidispine API architecture to manage your media and metadata resources.
