Priologic will release the first-ever open source WebRTC plugin for IE prior to WebRTC IV in Atlanta on June 17-19, 2014. This new IE plugin will be released under a BSD2 license to allow any WebRTC team to use it and improve on itwithin their commercial products or as open source.
Priologic is the creator of EasyRTC, one of the world's most the popular and widely-used toolkits for WebRTC. EasyRTC has regularly won industry awards and recognition as the toolkit continuously expands and improves.
Priologic's CEO, Doug Pelton, acknowledges that other teams have done great work enabling WebRTC in the IE browser and have provided it for free, but to date none have been open sourced. "EasyRTC is open source so it makes sense that we have an open source WebRTC plugin for IE," says Pelton. "Of course, the best-case scenario would be if Microsoft put full WebRTC support into Internet Explorer."
"Priologic's team has also been busy refining Priologic's EasyRTC and Tawk.com offerings, and making them more accessible across platforms. At WebRTC IV, we'll also be showing our EasyRTC iOS Native Client, EasyRTC Android Native Client, EasyRTC C++ native client and a new EasyRTC 3rd party adapter," says Pelton.
The EasyRTC 3rd Party Adaptor is designed to allow Media Servers and WebRTC Gateways access to and from EasyRTC. The Adaptor makes many of the features that are difficult to build in pure WebRTC more accessible, such as recording, archiving and playback of sessions and access to the broader public telephone network.
"The EasyRTC team has been working very hard over the past six months, and we're really looking forward to showing our wares and meeting everyone at WebRTC IV in Atlanta next week," says Pelton.
About Priologic (http://priologic.com)
As a recognized leader in the WebRTC community, Priologic's mission is to normalize and hide frequent WebRTC API changes for developers.
Priologic's EasyRTC (http://easyrtc.com/) is the easiest way to enable browser-to-browser voice and video chat without ever needing to install plugins or worry about security or privacy issues. Right now, EasyRTC can be used on over a billion devices worldwide, a number that is expected to grow dramatically over the next few years as other browsers support WebRTC, and WebRTC mobile devices proliferate.
EasyRTC uses the emerging Web-Based Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) framework to turn popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera into telephony engines so that devices can connect via IM, video, or voice chat.
The company works constantly to update EasyRTC, a full-stack open source toolkit suitable for building highly secure enterprise WebRTC applications. EasyRTC is a bundle of web applications, code snippets, client libraries and server components, written and documented by Priologic to work right out of box.
