The Delivery API delivers your content and hosted players to your viewers and external partners. Designed for high availability and low latency, the Delivery API offers the following features:

  • Support for high-volume API requests and streaming
  • Short caching to optimize response times globally
  • Content packaged into easily consumable templates: JSON and RSS and feeds, player javascript, ad schedules, adaptive bitrate streaming manifests, and various quality renditions of each media
  • Metadata for content filtering
  • Ability to secure your content as needed, including signed (expiring) links, geographic restrictions, DRM, and content publishing and expiration scheduling
