Epiphan Video opens up the API for its popular social media streaming encoder

Epiphan Video, a leader in professional audiovisual capture, recording, video switcher, and streaming products, is revealing the exciting news at IBC 2018 that they’ve opened up the Epiphan Video Webcaster X2™ API for third-party applications to integrate with Epiphan’s hugely popular social media streaming video encoder.

Webcaster X2 is a hardware encoder designed to make live streaming easy. Popular social media platforms already integrated with Webcaster X2 include Facebook Live, YouTube, and Twitch. Users simply connect an HDMI™ source, pair their social media account, and initiate their stream with the press of a button. And now with an open API, the sky’s the limit as to the number of third-party apps that can be used with Webcaster X2.

In fact, we’re excited to announce that Switchboard Live, Blue Frame Technology, and Babyflix are the first to integrate Webcaster X2 to their platforms using the API.  Rudiger J. Ellis, CEO of Switchboard Live, has this to say about integrating with Webcaster X2. “To have Switchboard Cloud selected as one of the first Webcaster X2 integrations is beyond exciting. At Switchboard Live, we believe that it’s all about the streamer and doing whatever it takes to create a high-value experience for both them and their audience. We also understand that the future is live video, and being prepared with the proper equipment and hardware is imperative for success. It is an honor to collaborate with a reputable brand like Epiphan as we work towards our common goal of empowering live content creators, big and small.”

“At Epiphan, we understand that we’re living in a connected world. Opening up the Webcaster X2 API so that companies like Switchboard Live, Blue Frame Technology, and others can integrate with our live streaming encoder is a logical evolution,” says David Kirk, Vice President of Product Marketing. “It’s exciting knowing that the Webcaster X2 will penetrate completely new markets as more third-party companies integrate their platforms with our field-proven and simple-to-use video encoder,” says Kirk. “We’re looking forward to many other platforms integrating Webcaster X2.”

We’re attending IBC 2018 in Amsterdam September 14th – 18th. Stop by the Epiphan Stand 11.A16 for hands-on demonstrations and meet Epiphan’s executive team.
