Vidtel Releases WebRTC with MeetMe and Gateway Video Conferencing Services
Feb 04, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Vidtel, a provider of cloud-based video conferencing, announced that the Vidtel MeetMe and Gateway cloud services natively support WebRTC.
According to a release, WebRTC is an open-source application interface that allows real-time services like voice, video, and data sharing to work within a web browser.
Vidtel's MeetMe and Gateway services both natively support WebRTC.
MeetMe is a cloud-based any-to-any video conferencing service that allows users to collaborate seamlessly, regardless of whether attendees use SIP endpoints, H.323 endpoints, Google Talk, Skype, or WebRTC-powered web browsers.
Gateway brings any-to-any functionality to a customers' existing video conferencing bridge. The Gateway service complements an existing video conferencing bridge: instead of being a closed ecosystem, the Gateway service extends the customers' bridge, allowing companies to include attendees from other SIP or H.323 devices, as well as WebRTC browsers, Google Talk, and Skype.
"We're thrilled to announce the public availability of WebRTC with our MeetMe and Gateway services," said Alex Doyle, VP Marketing at Vidtel. "With Vidtel's WebRTC support, attendees will be able to join video conferences as easily as visiting a web site, with no bulky downloads or plugins, and Vidtel partners can build compelling new video applications rapidly. We expect WebRTC to stimulate innovation, accelerate the adoption of video conferencing, and to expand video conferencing to entirely new markets."
Vidtel CEO Scott Wharton will be speaking on WebRTC at the ITExpo conference this week on two panels: The Future of Desktop Communications and Collaboration and Why Enterprise Video Will Explode in 2013.
