Accessing Video Stills

LEGACY Documentation for deprecated API version. For current documentation and up-to-date technical info, please visit here.


IVA hand picks a video still thumbnails to be used in conjunction with a video play for each asset. Each still is carefully selected from the video asset itself by one of IVA's acquisition team members. Customers who are subscribed to our video service will have access to these stills by passing the file path for the VideoAssetScreenCapture to the Image API.

Available Images:

Type Aspect Size
Thumbnail 4x3 320x240
Thumbnail 16x9 320x180
Master 4x3 Source (Variable)
Master 16x9 Source (Variable)

Every program (movie, show, video asset, etc.) contains data about the image assets including the file path or ID for the asset. IVA still images should be downloaded and stored on your own system. If you would like IVA to host and serve the images or have questions about your credentials please contact our Support Team.
