Being able to store and transform your media assets in one place makes creating your video and media applications much easier. It saves you time, creates consistency and reduces frustration.
Shotstack's Ingest API makes your workflow easier by taking in the source footage or image and applying transformations, optimisations, enhancements before you move to the edit. And the bonus, the Ingest API works seamlessly with the Shotstack Edit API, so you can ensure your assets are ready and are in the state you need them for your edit. All in one place.
It would have taken a lot of research on what technologies we needed to leverage technically for us to achieve the desired outcome. This would have taken at least two months of engineering time for a simple use case, and up to 6 months if the scope widened.
Creating and managing your own storage and server is both an investment in time and cost. With the Ingest API, we manage this for you. Simply upload your assets with the Shotstack API and they'll be there for when you need them.
When you have large file sizes or assets on a server outside of your country, you often experience latency. The Ingest API removes latency, increasing the speed for you to create assets.
The Ingest API makes it easy for you to resize images and footage at scale, along with upscaling, rotation fix, blur and audio clarification. Transform multiple assets all at once, removing the friction point of having to do this individually.
User generated content is a powerful communication tool. However, we know that using content that has been filmed on a smartphone has issues with video and audio format variations, resolution and aspect ratios, video orientation and the video frame rates. The Ingest API allows you to fix and standardise your content before moving into your edit.
