This resource provides an easy way of stitching images together. The result is cached in memory (and Memcached if it is activated in the configuration properties) for 3 hours.

It can be used with any image content and is not bound to be used with material imported in Vidispine. However, a typical usage of this service would be to assemble together representative thumbnails from several items of a collection.

This request must go to http://server:8080/APInoauth/ instead of the usual http://server:8080/API/

For a better quality rendering configure your Vidispine to use ImageMagick, see Configuration properties!

Don’t forget to URL encode all parameters!
