TokBox's WebRTC Voice and Video Platform Upgrades Services

June 20, 2014

TokBox, who has already made a large impact on the WebRTC scene by implementing an in-browser video chat platform for Mozilla Firefox, has made several new changes to their streaming services. On Tuesday June 17th, the San Fransisco based company announced they added brand new features to their voice and video platform at the WebRTC Conference and Expo. These updates include support for Intel x86 systems and slick new options for archiving data and transmitting onto mobile devices, including iOS and Android.

Intel x86 support is key to expanding TokBox's appeal to businesses of all sizes, from one-man operations to large enterprises. Additionally, x86 support is also part of the strategy for adapting the TokBox WebRTC Architecture to Android devices. The OpenTok Android software developer kit (SDK) utilizes x86 compatibility to deliver seamless usability and quality on a broad selection of existing and future mobile devices that utilize Intel's x86 architecture.

In addition to the OpenTok Android 2.2 SDK, TokBox also offers an OpenTok iOS SDK in order to allow app developers the opportunity to integrate OpenTok video platform into their programs. According to company CEO Scott Lomond, “TokBox is committed to providing the most advanced, enterprise-grade platform for real time voice and video applications, while continuing the developer friendliness that made OpenTok the most popular WebRTC platform in the first place. As recognition of the power and applicability of WebRTC grows, our challenge is to continue to provide product managers and developers the simplest and most powerful platform possible through innovation, developer support and partnerships.”

Both mobile SDKs feature the abiliy to customize both the input and output portions of the video platform, allowing total customization of the content appearing within the video chats. Developers can even add HD streaming from local networks in order to display videos, music, images or other products to the person on the other end of the conversation with ease.
