PANEL: Making WebRTC work: How APIs are bridging the technical divide (Open Talk)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

WebRTC promises to alter the landscape of real-time communication by providing the fundamental building blocks needed to develop truly high quality voice, video and data applications on the web.

While the standard may still be in its infancy, developers are already leveraging WebRTC to solve real-time communications issues today. But as the appetite for WebRTC grows, developers are finding through real world application of the standard, that there is a real gap between what WebRTC enables, and what consumers and enterprises want (and developers need) in market. 

This discussion will explore where WebRTC fits and where it falls short, how API providers are bridging the divide, and actual use cases for real time communication in verticals ranging from telepresence to healthcare.
