With the release of Cinegy Air 11, there are now some enhanced REST API calls accessible via the playout engine, which allows us to make some interesting interfaces to extend Cinegy Air. While this does not allow complete control of the playlist (for this you will need to wait for Cinegy Air 12, or access the engine via the traditional COM API), it does allow some common activities to be controlled - which can be used to make some useful remote panels.
The idea behind the original presentation at TechCon 2016 was to show how you can extend your workflow using the open architecture of Cinegy products and open Cinegy APIs. So in this post we will revisit some of these demonstrations and show that such kind of 'scripting' is not as difficult as most of you may think and can open new horizons for your everyday tasks. During this session we will explain why it may be worth to make some efforts to extend your traditional workflow, as you can achieve very exciting results; and our demos will show you some practical Cinegy API applications in the real environment.
