WebRTC is the leading industry standard for delivering high-quality video quickly and efficiently through the browser. In this blog post, you’ll learn why you should use the Hive WebRTC for video streaming and power up your enterprise video distribution.
All major modern browsers support WebRTC, allowing audio and video communication delivery via peer-to-peer communication. WebRTC traffic is also encrypted end-to-end, ensuring a secure means of transport for your video. Many applications you likely use today, including major chat, meetings, and video apps, already take advantage of WebRTC.
Hive WebRTC builds on top of this already powerful technology to seamlessly ensure that your next live event attains maximum reach, and allows viewers to benefit from the best possible Quality of Experience. And this – all while collecting detailed event performance data.
In short, WebRTC is here to stay and will only improve over time thanks to its several key advantages:
- Zero setup required: The purely browser-based solution gives virtually any device connected to the Internet scalable multimedia communication (voice, video, chat, file sharing, etc.). And this without having to install any additional software or browser plugin.
- Easy to maintain: WebRTC also delivers an easy mechanism for developing real-time multimedia applications without requiring strong knowledge of network protocols.
- Massive reach: WebRTC is compatible with all major modern browsers and is already used by a majority of Internet users. And they are likely to benefit from it on a daily basis. This reach will only broaden as more companies find new ways to use this technology.
