  • Personalize Your Rooms
  • Record a conference.
  • Inject and compose video content in real-time.

No additional software installation is requred.

Eyeson API for Omnis Studio

The Omnis Interface to the Eyeson api is implemented by the “o_eyeson” object distibuited in the library “eyeson_api.lbs”.
This library contain also an object  (“o_http3”) that manage the https connections to the eyeson server.

If you develop a your own application  you must copy the “o_eyeson” and  “o_http3” objects in  your library.

The o_eyeson  implements the  api made available by VisoCon Gmbh for the integration with their video conference system.

For details see the original documentation at: “”.

Examples in eyeson_test.lbs library

The “eyeson_test.lbs”  contains some example to show the usage of some aspects of  eyeson apis.

In the first form you have tree buttons:

Test Video (iframe)

This is an example of video conference integration in a web page.
In this case is used the html tag <iframe> to include the eyeson content into a custom web page developed with Omnis.

You can also add a guest to the room and send the url to another partecipant.

Test Video (Omnis component)

This example is similar to the previous, but instead to use an “<iframe>” tag, is used a simple omnis external component named “com_softpi_eyeson”.

The “com_softpi_eyeson” component will appear in the “JSON Components” tab of Component store and can be drag and drop into the remote form.
Before you can use it ,you must install the component into the omnis system as specified in omnis documentation.
The component is  in the “” file distribuited with the other libraries.

Test Api

The Test_api form can be used to test each metod in o_eyeson object.

Every tab of the multiple panel is about a specific aspect of eyeson api.
In eyeson_test.lbs you have also an example of restful web service to test the webhook functionalty of eyeson api (rt_hook).

Of course you have to configure your firewall or your web server to permit the incoming request to reach the web service inside omnis library.
