TrueConf 4.2 Adds Two-way WebRTC Capability

Furthering its commitment to WebRTC, as well as to the SMB segment, TrueConf has released a new version of its TrueConf Server offering. Version 4.2.0 of TrueConf Server features the ability to view and transmit audio and video from each participant in a group conference using WebRTC from any compatible Web browser in 720p. In other words, connecting to a TrueConf conference with a Web browser is now possible.

This release builds upon the enterprise-grade WebRTC support introduced in TrueConf Server 4.1 last September and makes it even more accessible. Now, all users need is to go to a generated conference link, select the type of authentication, and allow their browser to use their camera and microphone. If there’s a hardware issue, the user will automatically join the conference as a spectator.

Furthermore, using this functionality with Google’s Chrome browser enables the ability to display a desktop or a standalone application instead of the participant’s video feed. Going forward, TrueConf will also introduce support for messaging and slideshows within the browser.

"With full support of WebRTC in TrueConf Server 4.2, a web browser can be used as a full-fledged client app for video conferencing where all participants will see and hear each other,” said Michael Gotalsky, TrueConf CEO, in a statement. “This is the first-of-a-kind solution on our market, and it is ready to be implemented right now. TrueConf customers can easily organize their own secure corporate video broadcasting server to stream conferences to external users in real time without the need for them to install special software."

The latest release of TrueConf Server also introduces the ability to register various SIP devices on TrueConf Server, enabling users to make calls directly using the internal TrueConf ID. This also introduces the ability to track presence of such devices in the user’s Address Book.
