  3. 3. Real Time Communication between browsers An short introduction to WebRTC
  4. 4. Until now, some history • Skype, MSN, Lync, video conference systems, Unified Communications (UC) – Definition UC: From one interface/screen switching modes of communication without changing screens or devices • Proprietary owned implementations – Manufactured exclusively by the owner of intellectual property rights, as with a patent or trade secret. • Expensive and not freely available • Communication is server based
  5. 5. Initiative • Promoted by Google Chrome team since 2009, the W3C webRTC WG and the IETF RTCweb WG • Specification / W3C Editor's Draft 21 March 2014 • WebRTC is open source project • Manage multimedia communications • Simple API’s in Javascript • Multi platform and multi device • WebRTC specs built into browsers (see http:// • Now (2014) many suppliers offer WebRTC solutions and numbers are growing.

  9. 9. Get connected (2) 1. User clicks button and connects to server 2. Server sends signal to callee 3. Callee accepts 4. Communication is established 5. Audio, video chat transmission starts
  10. 10. Browser API’s for WebRTC Browser supports WebRTC using API’s: • GetUserMedia – To access and control microphone and camera hardware – Must be allowed by user (opt-in) • PeerConnection – Establish connection and set up context like security and codecs • DataChannels – Provide peer-to-peer connection – “Data part of WebRTC” API = Application Programming Interface My browser Other browser My browser Web Server + API’s mic webcam
  11. 11. Role of the Webserver • WebRTC is a webservice  webserver needed • Acts as the central control point • Webserver handles button clicked by user to join video conference • Webserver is needed to establish the connection between the browsers (peers) • Webserver does not handle the data part of the communication between the browsers
