Thanks for checking out the Rev developer portal. If you’ve used Rev you know how easy it enables organizations to take advantage of high quality live and on-demand video.
Videos have several types and uses cases, but fundamentally we’re talking about live or on-demand video. Live can either be scheduled, as in a webcast, or ad-hoc, as in IPTV.

Vbrick invests engineering resources on a regular basis to ensure the Rev API suite is able to meet as many demands as possible. Some of the most common actions using the Rev API include:
- Uploading video from third party systems
- Searching video which includes the Rev speech search
- Creating libraries of video with embedded playback
- Scheduling webcasts
- Setting up IPTV or live video feeds on the fly
- Managing users and other administrative related functions

An API that is only available with cloud accounts will note the on-premises version of Rev that the API has become available or the version of Rev that received an update to a particular API.
