WebRTC Conference 2012
Providing interactive communications between two peers web-browsers is possible already today. Indeed, there are a number of proprietary implementations allowing rich communications using audio, video or any collaboration. But these solutions are not interoperable as they require non-standard extensions or plugins to work.
Achieving Backwards Compatibility and Interoperability
The standards, the W3C is working on, defines a set of APIs that allow local media, including audio and video, to be requested from a platform, media to be sent over the network to another browser or device implementing the appropriate set of real-time protocols, and media received from another browser or device to be processed and displayed locally. This specification is being developed in conjunction with a protocol specification developed by the IETF RTCWEB working group.
Once these APIs are stable, backwards compatibility and interoperability will be achieved. The WebRTC API layer will be the main focus for stability and interoperability.
During the WebRTC conference, to be held in Novotel Wellness & Convention Centre Paris Roissy CDG, from 10 to 12 October, 2012, experts will address all technical and standardization issues that still need to be solved.
