With the help of WebRTC technology, a web browser may now be used as a client application for multipoint video conferencingpurposes. Version 4.1 of the software-based videoconferencing solution TrueConf Server has added support for WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications)-compliant browsers. TrueConf Server users can now easily use their personal devices to receive real-time video broadcasting, simplifying online virtual meetings.
WebRTC Video conference Broadcasting Customers hosting a cloud-based video conferencingusing TrueConf Server can generate a link and invite observers to watch straight from their browser, without requiring them to install third-party add-ons or programs.
Supported by scalable video coding (SVC), the WebRTC-based video and audio feed adapts according to the capabilities of the user's connection speed. This allows the server to automatically re-adjust the resolution, frame rate and compression ratio of the transmitted video so that it is optimal for the Internet connection speed and the device.
Internet video conferencingfeeds can be accessed from any web browser supporting WebRTC, including hardware operating Linux OS or mobile devices running Android. TrueConf Server 4.1 is compatible with all browsers based on the Chromium engine (Chrome, new Opera, etc.). Support for the popular browsers Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer will be implemented in the next version of TrueConf Server.
TrueConf CEO Michael Gotalsky says: "Our mission is to provide users with the highest quality online video conferencing experience. Our products use the most effective and advanced communication technology available in the world today. We have been able to support the WebRTC standards in our solutions after just 2 months after its official release, and we are the first to implement this technology in the form of a finished, enterprise-ready product for corporate videoconferencing that works within private networks."
Other features of TrueConf Server 4.1 Initially released in TrueConf Server 4.0, the improved web management interface continues to work on all operating systems and compatible devices. In Version 4.1, this interface is faster and easier to use, assisting TrueConf Server systems administrators in managing sessions, users, conference schedules, and access URLs.
In addition to these new features, TrueConf Server 4.1 also includes the ability to automatically record HD video conferencing on the server (not only from client applications) and has been localized for Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Czech customers.
