Live Entities

A live_entity contains the information required for Uiza to successfully allocate resources to power the live_entity's live broadcasting sessions. You can reuse a live_entity and broadcast multiple live sessions sequentially.

The API allows you to create, delete, reset your ingest.key, and update the name and description of the live_entity. Individual entities and a list of all your entities are retrievable via these APIs too.

The live entity object


id string

The unique identifier for the live entity.

name string

The name of your live entity. (limit 100 characters)

description string

Describes the content of the live entity. Often useful for displaying to viewers. You could update this accordingly to suit different sessions of a single live entity.

encoding_template string

Specify the template that our ingest server will process your stream source, from SD to Full-HD for the output singal. There are 4 values that Uiza currently support:

none We keep the output stream same as your source.

sd The output contains 1 video profile with 480p resolution.

hd The output contains 2 video profile with 480p and 720p resolutions.

fhd The output contains 3 video profile with 480p, 720p, and 1080p resolutions.

ingest array

Contains the information required to access to Uiza's ingest servers. Use the key and url to configure your broadcasting software.

playback object

sg-singapore-1 Singapore

status string

Once the request to create a live_entity is received, Uiza will allocate resources in the requested region. While the process may take up to 1 minute, the status of the live_entity is init. This will be updated to ready once resources are successfully allocated and to broadcasting during a broadcasting session.

dvr string

Indicates whether Digital Video Record (DVR) is enabled for the live_entity. Set to true to enable and to false to disable this feature.

relay array

A list of ingesting object contains the information required to access to 3rd ingest servers. Use the key and url to configure your broadcasting destination. Uiza will relay your signal to our server to list of ingest servers in relay array.

The timestamp, at which the live_entity is created, follows the ISO 8601 standard.

updated_at string

The timestamp, at which the most recent update to the live_entity occurred, follows the ISO 8601 standard.
