Control via API

RT Software supports the control of its Swift Engine renderer by external systems using our API, as part of our strategy for open integration.

Typical applications include:

  • Control by Playout Automation for Channel Branding graphics
  • Control by NRCS for Newsroom graphics.
  • Virtual studios control.
  • Integration with 3rd party generic control systems.

If you are planning a new project we would recommend that you consider our native API which provides a lower level access to our comprehensive feature set. However, industry standards such as MOS, Sony 9pin serial and GPI are also included within our Swift Engine.

We have also implemented vendor specific protocols such as Grass Valley’s PBAK used in their playout automation.

These are all implemented via an open plug in architecture making it quick and easy to extend functionality or add new protocols as projects demand them.

API control can work alongside our Swift Live browser based control system, allowing the customer to build their ultimate solution, all built around a common, scalable Swift Engine render system.

If you have a project that would benefit from direct API control of our renderer and would like some advice please get in touch so we can provide guidance.
