FOSTER CITY, Calif., Jan. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Conviva, the leader in Over the Top (OTT) video experience optimization for the world's top media companies, today announced the release of a new online Developer Community.

As viewers increasingly seek to consume premium video on ever-larger screens, developers need to expedite ecosystem integrations that guarantee optimized experiences. By making crucial elements of the Conviva Intelligent Control Platform, and its associated APIs, available to 3rd party developers, Conviva intends to drastically reduce the time it takes to complete this development.

The new Developer Community, which is replacing the existing Developer Resource Center (DRC), provides developers with technical documentation, software development kits (SDKs), sample source code and reference guides for testing their new, innovative applications.

Key elements of the new community include:

  • Software Development Kits (SDKs), and technical documentation, which act as the foundation of new experience solutions
  • Sample source code, which accelerates the prototyping and release of new experience solutions
  • Reference guides for testing new experience solutions, which reduce time-to-market for new offerings
  • A developer forum, connecting 3rd party developers and integrators with Conviva engineers, and the community at large (coming in Q1)

"Conviva SDK allows Yahoo the flexibility to integrate and use Conviva's platform for devices and players based on our unique needs," said P.P.S. Narayan, VP of Engineering at Yahoo. "As Yahoo looks to further extend its leadership in OTT streaming, we view Conviva as a key partner in this journey."

"As viewers increase their consumption of premium content on larger devices, experience will be the factor that distinguishes the top services," said Dr. Hui Zhang, CEO of Conviva. "The release of this developer community eliminates hurdles for developers and integrators who want, and need, to quickly build and release experience-optimizing solutions. In turn, these solutions will help our customers to achieve their core goals: attracting, building and retaining profitable audiences."
