AnyMeeting Continues to Lead WebRTC Innovation in Web Conferencing With Preview of Browser-Based Screen Sharing
Small Business Web Conferencing Provider to Showcase Innovation at WebRTC Conference & Expo III
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - �AnyMeeting (http://anymeeting.com), a leading provider of web and video conferencing software for small business, announced that it will be previewing its latest implementation of WebRTC -- now for screen sharing -- at the WebRTC World Conference & Expo III in Santa Clara, on Nov. 21.
Building on its production rollout of WebRTC for audio earlier this year, AnyMeeting will preview its new WebRTC screen sharing technology by broadcasting the presenter's screen to any WebRTC-enabled web browser in real time, with minimal latency, and with no plugins or other requirements on the viewer side.�Unlike other WebRTC screen sharing offerings that have been demoed, AnyMeeting's requires no adjustments to browser settings.�The presenter simply installs a small plugin accessible via the browser and is able to instantly share their screen.�The company expects to roll out this technology to production customers in Q1 2014.
"As one of the leading providers of web and video conferencing for small business, AnyMeeting is furthering its commitment to implementing the latest technology to improve the online meeting experience for our customers," said Costin Tuculescu, CEO and founder of AnyMeeting. "I believe browser-based solutions are the key to delivering the simplicity and ease of use that small businesses demand in web conferencing, and WebRTC helps us achieve this with best-in-class performance in the browser," Tuculescu added.
AnyMeeting is a Gold Sponsor of the conference -- the longest running global WebRTC event -- and Tuculescu will be a featured panelist.
WebRTC is an open framework for the web that enables real time communications (RTC) in the web browser. It includes the fundamental building blocks for high quality communications on the web such as network, audio and video components used in voice and video chat applications.�
Currently available to users of Chrome 27+, the AnyMeeting WebRTC-enabled platform delivers exceptional audio performance through best-in-class echo cancellation, low latency response times, and high-quality codecs. The company supports older browsers through Flash technology.
The company has long been a supporter of the WebRTC movement, hosting a hackathon earlier this year, as well as sponsoring core WebRTC initiatives in open source projects.�
Based in Orange County, California, AnyMeeting pioneered the small business web conferencing market in 2009 with a completely free, full-featured and easy-to-use web conferencing service tailored for small business. Since then, it has grown to more than 450,000 small business users of both its free ad-supported service and low-cost ad-free options.�Designed specifically for small business, AnyMeeting offers a complete web conferencing and webinar service built on the company's proven Software as a Service platform.�Meeting hosts are able to invite up to 200 attendees per meeting with no time limits, and enjoy a full range of features including integrated video conferencing, screen sharing, presentation sharing, recording and social media integration.�AnyMeeting is the best choice for small businesses, independent professionals and just about anyone who can benefit from online meetings.�Current investors include Tech Coast Angels, Pasadena Angels, Maverick Angels, Sand Hill Angels and Keiretsu Forum.�For more information, please visit www.AnyMeeting.com.
