Massively automate your deliverables
workflow with cineX API

cineX API represents the next evolution in cineX technology by streamlining your distribution workflow. Insert and replace a promo slate to hundreds of files at a time, or create multiple audio versions for your international deliverables with the push of one button. Do one job or create multiple jobs that can be combined to customize a workflow that quickly and efficiently meets your needs – all without re-encoding and re-QCing your files.

New cineX-API Access!

With API Access, there’s now a minimal threshold to start automating insert-edits.

Create and save templates from the standard cineXtools user interface to be used in the ‘API Access’ tab.

API Access lets you push jobs to batch process a group of files for video or audio insert-edit, closed captions updates and inserts, audio versioning, trim and extend and AS11 metadata updates.

As a watchfolder-based workflow creator, cineX-API can also be daisy chained with other watchfolder-based tools so that multiple transformations can occur to the same asset in a much faster than real-time process.

Previously cineX-API had only been available through integration with MAMs using RESTful API. While RESTful API remains the most common API language, it still requires programming experience and a custom user interface that not every facility needs or wants.

With API Access, there’s now a minimal threshold to start automating insert-edits. The user only needs to be familiar with how to use cineXtools to create jobs that can batch process hundreds of files at a time.

Create Efficiencies at Every Level

Post Production Facility

Automate a little or a lot. API-Access lets you batch process several video files without a MAM.

Use API-Access

The built in workflow engine will allow you to plan, customize, and streamline your video editing workflow.

Studios & Networks

Transform your assets at a granular level. Insert audio or video using your existing MAM.

Use cineX API:

We use a RESTful API. It's the most recognized protocol for interoperability with Media Asset Management systems.

Cloud-based Services

Re-uploading video content over and over can be costly and time-consuming.

Command Line Tool

If you only need access to a limited library, this is the level of API access for you.

Insert-edit to hundreds of files at a time - changing only what you need.


Audio Version your assets without transcoding to save time and resources. 


Insert and Transform hundreds or even thousands of files at a time without re-encoding…

…Or create multiple audio versions for delivery.

Even add, replace or delete subtitles and captions.

Integrate cineX API


CineX API comes with a workflow engine. You can use it to create pre-defined file and watchfolder based processes. API-Access can help you to get started quickly. With full access to cineXtools features, use API-Access to develop your workflow. You can set multiple jobs to complete one after the other. As each file gets transformed, API-Access saves it to a shared watchfolder.


If you’re using a MAM, there’s a good chance that RESTful APIs are already a part of your automation workflow. CineXtools provides REST API hooks for all its features and functions. From Insert Edit and Audio Reversioning to Timecode Restripe. CineX offers tools to quickly undertake tasks over several processing cores. Regardless of whether you’d like to insert and transform 10 or 1000 video files.

Low Level API

CineX API provides low-level access to its libraries for end-users with programming experience. By using CineX API’s command line tools, users can exploit CineX’s insert-edit engine. They can unlock wider data center deployments of CineX insert-edit technology. This means access to XDCAM or ProRes file inserts only. And it is possible without going through middleware to translate each process.
