AnyMeeting Leads Industry by Deploying WebRTC Technology in Full-Featured Web Conferencing Platform

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.
