Hello Web Conferencing Professional!

I wanted to share my experiences with WebRTC and how quickly you can get a free Face to Face video conferencing software up and running on your own website or server. As many of you may know Google has released a Open Source code library giving anyone the capabilities to install and use WebRTC! Using the free resources from Google and some basic HTML and CSS knowledge you can create a "Skype" like application in only a couple hours.

A Wireless Future for Video Conferencing

Posted by Matthew Davis on Oct 16, 2014 1:38:00 PM

From the early telephonoscope concept in 1879, which transmitted “light,” or images, accompanied by sound, to Germany’s first commercially available “videotelephony” in the late 1930s, people recognized the value in accompanying audio with images or video. 

By the 1970’s, AT&T’s Picturephone technology had pushed the market as far as it could go, evolving from a series of static images generated every few seconds to a “smooth” video stream. Yet further progress seemed stalled as a result of the pipelines—preexisting telephone lines, which could only carry limited amounts of data.
