Cine.io, a service that allows developers to instantly setup geo-distributied broadcast networks to transmit video and audio content, is now available in the PWS store.
Cine optimizes the video content for the consuming platform by transcoding it to the most appropriate format. Using cine.io customers don’t need to re-send the same bits of audio/video to each subscriber, which is very bandwidth intensive on the transmitter. The cine.io platform also allows easy cloud capture and storage of the video content for later playback or archival.
Thomas Shafer, a co-founder of cine.io described the new offering as a win for agile developers supporting video, citing: “PWS is an important distribution channel for cine.io. Our users expect instant global scalability in their video applications, and PWS has the momentum in providing backend services for enterprise level global applications. The two together provide a robust cloud server infrastructure (PWS) and cloud video infrastructure (cine.io) to meet the needs of small, medium, large, and enterprise level applications.”
The scenarios that can be enabled with this integration between cine.io and PWS include:
- Broadcasting from a mobile device
- Remote home monitoring and archival for future playback
- Remote broadcast of company meetings
- Remote training
Cine.io is now available in the PWS Marketplace and can be provisioned and bound to an application instance through the PWS UI as well as the PWS CLI tools
To start using cine.io in your application you would need to parse the secret and private keys from
VCAP_SERVICES (examples in multiple languages are available here)
Once cine.io is bound to an application. You can create new streams, publish streams and play live streams from others.
LiveStreaming content can be done with just a few lines :
var streamId = '<STREAM_ID>’ , password = '<STREAM_PASSWORD’ , domId = 'publisher-example’; var publisher = CineIO.publish( streamId, password, domId ); publisher.start();
To play a stream:
var streamId = '<STREAM_ID>’ , domId = 'player-example’; CineIO.play(streamId, domId);
We are excited to add new partners and looking forward to all the great applications you (our customers) will be able to create with PWS and cine.io
