PRLog - Sep. 10, 2012 - Alan B. Johnston, expert on Internet Communication protocols and security and Daniel C. Burnett, expert in speech technology and standards, describe how Web Real-Time Communications, WebRTC, is changing the way we use the web to communicate in their new book WebRTC: APIs and RTCWEB Protocols of the HTML5 Real-Time Web, published by Digital Codex LLC.
WebRTC: APIs and RTCWEB Protocols of the HTML5 Real-Time Web
WebRTC adds new voice, video, and data communication technology into web browsers without a download or plugin. Using new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and protocols, web developers can now add high quality peer-to-peer voice, video, and data channel communications to their collaboration, conferencing, telephony, or even gaming site or application. This book brings the reader up to speed on this disruptive technology, and makes complicated concepts and technologies such as peer-to-peer media, and NAT and firewall traversal easy to understand.
The future of communication on the web…
Internet industry leaders from companies such as Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, Avaya, Voxeo, and many others are currently driving the standards and technology for WebRTC. This technology has the potential to replace all voice and video communication, including the telephone network and VoIP communication systems.
Alan B. Johnston is actively involved in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Real-Time Communications Web (RTCWEB) working group, while Daniel C. Burnett is an editor of two of the main World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) working drafts, known as “WebRTC” and “Media Capture and Streams”.
WebRTC: APIs and RTCWEB Protocols of the HTML5 Real-Time Web is a groundbreaking book that provides an up-to-the-minute view of this topic. The book is available now on Amazon as a paperback and Kindle eBook.
