CineSend Details & Setup

CineSend Details

CineSend is one of the Video On Demand options that Agile integrated with. Through this integration, you can upload films provided to you from distributors, filmmakers, or other providers and have them encrypted using CineSend's DRM and then link them to a show in Agile via an AssetID provided from CineSend. You can even set up your CineSend and Agile accounts to function with the OTT (Over The Television or Over The Top) App to allow your patrons access to your films and videos on platforms like Roku or Apple TV. However, use of this feature does require additional setup through CineSend and must be discussed with your CineSend Representative.

Setting Up Your API Key and Virtual Shows
