Communications within businesses, and between businesses, are fundamentally changing. Like all new implementations, communication apps require companies to consider many factors: technology platforms and configurations, human factors around adoption and usage, as well as the potential impacts – both intended and unintended.
In addition to selecting a secure platform provider, it’s equally as important to architect your application in a secure way.
That’s why we created the “Best Practices: Building a Secure App with OpenTok” guide. This resource is designed to help you ask the right questions while developing your application, and provides best practice recommendations so that you can make informed decisions.
WebRTC is maturing and we can see the needs in the market evolving along with this.
However, with the increased need for rich, digital experiences comes the challenge of building more advanced applications. We know that building real-time video communications can be challenging, especially when it involves more than two participants. To pull off a multi-party call using WebRTC off-the-shelf you’ll need a strong backend infrastructure and a deep understanding of media processing. That’s why we are looking forward to exploring this topic with WebRTC expert, Tsahi Levent-Levi, founder of bloggeek.me, in our upcoming webinar.
We’ve all seen the statistics and now know that mobile usage is at an all time high and is still on the rise. Increasing with this is mobile video consumption. As mobile data has become more affordable and reliable, and with more WiFi hotspots popping up, it is becoming increasingly easy to watch, share and communicate via video on mobile devices.
This is something that our partners at Simpleweb, a web and mobile development agency in the UK, have noticed too. They know that a new wave of apps is revolutionizing the way we view and broadcast video online, many of which are powered by WebRTC.
Mozilla has released further enhancements to Firefox Hello, powered by OpenTok, including the ability to screen share within a video chat. This new feature allows participants to open and share a browser tab or application window from within the chat, making browsing, shopping, drafting or any other activity more collaborative and engaging.
