What is WebRTC?
Web Real Time Communications (WebRTC) is a powerful new technology standard for real-time video, audio and data communications.
The W3C and IETF define, implement, and support the WebRTC standard. Many companies (including Temasys) and individuals (through the IETF) actively contribute to that effort.
The vision we all share is that real-time communications should "just work" in web browsers without plugins, and in fact on any internet-connected device with one core technology underpinning each web and mobile app.
That means real-time video, audio and data communications need to happen without using Flash, Silverlight, Active-X controls, and Java Applets in web browsers, and that communication features should be equally well-supported across all devices.
In real life, WebRTC is implemented in an open source software library and a low-level API. Some web browsers support it natively (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera). Others don't support it yet
(Microsoft and Apple).
There are other challenges as well. The WebRTC open source API isn't very easy to use if you're not already an expert in video and audio technologies. We help a lot of people who have tried building their own WebRTC services and who have problems scaling them beyond proof-of-concept. And there many are other factors that impact real-time communications performance beyond the scope of what WebRTC delivers in terms of capabilities.
Temasys can help with all of that. We not only make WebRTC really easy to work with. We help make WebRTC work everywhere
, reliably and at scale.
