API documentation

PTV xServer comes in two different API versions, 1 and 2

    • API Version 1 is our established solution that is widely used in the market. Your company has been a customer for a while and hasn't switched APIs recently? Then you're most likely interested in the documentation on API Version 1.

      If you want to see integration samples, you can check them out in the xServer API Version 1 Code Sample Browser.

    • API Version 2 is the future of PTV xServer as it's designed in a completely new framework. It is easier to understand and as a programmer, you will benefit from improved flexibility and consistency. If your company recently integrated PTV xServer into their software solution, is still in the middle of it or is planning an integration soon, you should look at API Version 2.
