Flashphoner announces its new product WebRTC Media and Broadcasting Server. This server software is ideal for webinars, online conferences, broadcasting of a video from web and IP cameras, as well as for any other real-time video content broadcasting to multiple users.
WebRTC is a relatively new technology intended to deliver stream content to and from a browser as well as any other devices with the support for this technology. The key difference of WebRTC is low communication latency in comparison with conventional Flash and HTTP streaming technologies and minimum requirements to user´s computer; in particular, only a WebRTC-compatible browser is needed.
Flashphoner developed WebRTC Media and Broadcasting Server as an easy-to-use tool to build multi-user stream broadcasts. The server easily installs on any Linux system and broadcasts the source video stream to any number of clients.
As a source of the video, the server supports compatible browsers, stationary IP cameras, media servers, and other devices having the support for the RTSP protocol and all necessary codecs including H.264 and VP8 for video, and G.711, Speex, Opus for audio.
“Currently, WebRTC is supported by all major browsers, including those operating on mobile platforms,” says Alexey Kim, leading developer at Flashphoner. “And that is a multimillion audience ready to watch video content right away, with no additional software required. Our WebRTC server effectively helps to reach that audience.”

A SIMPLE license is offered for $999 or $1499, depending on whether or not a brand link is displayed in the playback window. Also, installation services are available for additional price.
