…is the door to online media. airable.api connects hardware and companion apps to multiple sources of content. Our airable internet radio station catalogue, the airable on demand show catalogue and music subscription services are ‘hooked’ in.
What it is
airable.api acts as a layer that connects devices to the dynamically growing – and changing – world of internet media and music subscription services.
Integration usually takes a few weeks, deepening on the hardware platform and user interface definitions. This saves the time and effort of implementing an maintaining individual APIs for each music service and content catalogue. Means: implement ONE API instead of MANY.
airable.API currently gives technical access to these services and catalogues:

Here is why
Device makers take advantage of:
– integrating just one API instead of four or five or six or….. APIs.
– adding media catalogues and music services comes without updating devices (same for removing)
– updates on media catalogues and music services usuall don’t require updates of software or QC processes
– technical and administrative issues are taken care of by airable
The airable.API can be integrated into most technology platforms. Currently there are two ways of getting services through the airable.API into products:
a) Platform Partners
