Powerful restful api

Skylark is built on a robust API framework. This can be filtered to reduce the amount of data needed for specific channels, creating slim responses that suit mobile and connected devices where fast connection speeds are essential. The API can also be expanded to respond with all the required references in a single call, meaning fewer sequential API calls, and a reduction in the number of network calls.

This will also be an important benefit in object-based media. Find out more in this blog post.
