When Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla team up, you might think, “Nothing good is going to come of this.” You’d be so wrong. An Open Source project is typically the last thing these tech behemoths would ever want to be involved in, let alone with their fiercest rivals. WebRTC is a fascinating example of how good things can be born of necessity and how they can foster cooperation on multiple levels. We’ll discuss the basics of WebRTC and the multitude of applications that are already using it to change the way the world communicates. This is especially important in light of the rapid evaporation of our “traditional” telco infrastructure. We’ll also cover broadcast-specific applications and the future of live content creation.
