Ready-made plugins drive value for easy and fast 3rd party integrations
Agama continues to develop its library of pre-built plugins to make it easy for our customers to expand onto new platforms.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for video service providers to bring their services to new platforms so they can keep up with their customers’ demand for high-quality experiences. This article provides additional information about our new plugin for the Dash.js player, which is fully compatible with Agama CDM (Client Device Monitoring).
Breaking away from the traditional 1-to-1 integration approach and moving towards sustainable ready-made plugins
The dash.js player plugin for Smart TVs and browsers is the most recent addition to our collection of plugins. It is compatible with browsers such as Safari, Chrome, Edge, and Firefox, and it also supports the Smart TV operating systems Samsung Tizen and LG WebOS.
Adding the Dash.js plugin is a crucial step to broaden the different flavors of integrations supported out of the box by Agama.
Our customers are used to having all the information available for set-top boxes, but today it’s equally important to have the same insights for mobile devices, AppleTV, Chromecast and smart TVs. It is essential for us to make it simple to expand to all the various platforms; having complete information about how the video service performs on all the different devices in the same system is powerful, both to be proactive in decision-making – for fixing issues before the customer detects them, as well as to ensure efficient troubleshooting when a customer contacts the customer care support to report a problem.
Features of plugin dash.js
- Our pre-built plugins and SDK libraries allow for seamless integration with a wide variety of end-user devices
- Faster deployment thanks to pre-built support for the most popular platforms
- The Agama data model is unnecessary to learn thanks to the dash.js plugin
