Priologic, Pioneer in WebRTC, Offers New Products

Based in Victoria, British Columbia, Priologic Software has deployed enterprise software teams since 2003. Teams develop custom applications, enterprise collaboration portlets, platforms and mobile applications. 

For a few years, Priologic has been working on WebRTC, too. “We’re now considered one of the pioneers – one of the many pioneers – in the WebRTC movement,” Priologic's CEO Doug Pelton said during a presentation at the WebRTC Conference & Expo in Atlanta.

Among the products it showed during the demonstration was EasyRTC, a full-stack, open source toolkit for WebRTC. EasyRTC enables browser-to-browser voice and video chat without plugins. EasyRTC uses WebRTC to turn web browsers into telephony engines so devices can connect through instant messaging, video, or voice chat, the company said.

In addition, Priologic, while in Atlanta, released the first open source WebRTC plugin for Internet Explorer. The license being offered lets any WebRTC team use it within their commercial products or as an open source offering.

"EasyRTC is open source so it makes sense that we have an open source WebRTC plugin for IE," Pelton said in a recent statement. "Of course, the best-case scenario would be if Microsoft put full WebRTC support into Internet Explorer."

During the Atlanta demo, the company showed IE talking to the Simple Audio Video Demo. It also showed Talk.com connected to an iOS device, whereby WebRTC talks to different devices.

Among its new APIs is a headless client adaptor, which adapts to other systems, and can be used for load balancing and testing. It lets ties take place with other vendors if they can talk to WebRTC. Also coming out are EasyRTC for Java and EasyRTC for C++. The EasyRTC 3rd Party Adaptor lets media servers and WebRTC Gateways access EasyRTC. Many features which may be difficult to build into WebRTC become accessible, such as recording, archiving and playback of sessions, as well as access to the public telephone network.
