Small Business Web Conferencing Provider Pushes Innovation in Browser-Based Real Time Communications

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA- Aug 15, 2013 – AnyMeeting (http://anymeeting.com), a leading provider of web conferencing software for small business, announced that it has deployed WebRTC technology into its full-featured web conferencing platform — leading the conferencing industry in applying this emerging technology standard.
WebRTC is an open framework for the web that enables real time communications (RTC) in the web browser. It includes the fundamental building blocks for high quality communications on the web, such as network, audio and video components used in voice and video chat applications.

“As one of the leading providers of web conferencing for small business, AnyMeeting is committed to implementing the latest technology to improve the online meeting experience,” said Costin Tuculescu, founder and CEO of AnyMeeting. “We’ve always been focused on building best-in-class web conferencing technology that doesn’t require an external download or software installation, and now WebRTC helps us take this vision even further,” Tuculescu added.

While other web software products have begun utilizing WebRTC, AnyMeeting is one of the first companies to apply the technology to a full-featured web conferencing product, supporting video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, document sharing, recording, and much more. Currently available to users of Chrome 27+ (with Firefox support coming soon), the AnyMeeting WebRTC-enabled platform delivers exceptional audio performance through best in class echo cancellation, low latency response times, and high quality audio codecs. The company still supports older browsers through Flash technology.

The company has long been a supporter of the WebRTC movement, hosting a WebRTC hackathon earlier this year, as well as sponsoring core WebRTC initiatives in open source projects.

Starting at the beginning of October, my Anymeeting attendees began to have serious issues both with being able to log in (and stay logged into) my meetings, and with simply being unable to get audio to work at all. Ironically, one of my attendees, who wouldn’t give up on trying to attend, discovered that it mostly worked if he installed Chrome. We texted everyone and let them know about the Chrome option. Most of them had better luck with Chrome- but there are those who are on locked down devices and can’t install non-approved software (like Chrome). Are you saying, now that Anymeeting is all WebRTC, that my people are going to continue to be unable to reliably attend my meeting unless they use Chrome?
