OpenTok Makes Web Communication Easy to Implement

Let’s say your new company, Acme Enterprises, has an awesome line of products, except that your company is comprised of you, a few bodies in development and an office manager. You have a great website, but you really want to integrate face-to-face chat to enhance the customer experience. The problem is that you only have one developer who doesn’t have a lot of time for more projects, nor do you have the funds to go ahead and hire a new one. You can do simple stuff, but by no means can you write 500 lines of code. What do you do? You rely on the power of WebRTC and solutions like TokBox to make development easier and faster.

With TokBox, you can have what looks like a complicated Web chat application which really only require 30 lines of code. That’s what TokBox demonstrated at WebRTC Expo – 30 lines of code that seemed like hundreds.  The solution makes WebRTC a reality for Acme Enterprises by implementing the features necessary to support multi-party Web calls.

OpenTok Archiving & Playback allows developers to easily add video stream recording for their live video chat applications, save the conversation into a single H.264/AAC MP4 file and download or access the stream through the player of their choice. The solution has been used by tens of thousands of developers to add live video to their websites or mobile applications.

The company won the Best In Show Award at the 2013 WebRTC Conference and Expo for its OpenTok WebRTC Platform.

"The support and recognition of the industry has made us all the more determined in our mission to provide developers with the best tools for creating innovative websites and mobile applications incorporating live video. The WebRTC community is coming into an exciting age, and we are very proud to be a part of its vision and growth,” said Ian Small, TokBox CEO.

Watch TokBox in action as it is demonstrated to attendees at the WebRTC Conference and Expo, and see how 30 lines of code can work wonders for any company looking to implement feature-rich Web chat right into their websites:
