Linking today to some great content from another Ian (ProTip: get to know an Ian, we’re full of useful knowledge). Ian Morrish posts about automating a variety of methods of automating A/V equipment using PowerShell. Lots of useful stuff in here.
No Windows? No worries, you can install PowerShell on MacOS and Linux too.
I’ve put some feelers out to some of my streaming equipment vendors to find out what kind of automation hooks and APIs they support.
Meanwhile, Wowza has a REST API for both its Streaming Engine and Cloud products. Integrating this into PowerShell should be relatively straightforward. Any PowerShell wizards wanna take a stab at it?
