Quickchannel, provider of online streaming and recording services, has extended its video platform with the launch of WebRTC (Web Real Time Communication), allowing users to live stream secure, branded and high quality video from any location. As an open-source technology supported by renowned software brands such as Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla, the launch of WebRTC means Quickchannel’s customers are able to stream content directly via a browser, with no need for hardware, downloads or plugins.
“With the rapid pace at which technology continues to evolve, businesses are capitalising on web-based media streaming to get their message heard, promote new products and services, or even just engage with their teams,” said Viktor Underwood, CEO at Quickchannel. “Now that more businesses are embracing remote working, customers are going to increasingly rely on video communication and live virtual events, which is why streaming directly from the browser is a valuable tool for internal and external company communication.”
WebRTC provides a simple way to deliver professional streaming from any location simply by using a browser and a camera device, with no need for plugins, downloads or ancillary technologies. Users are able to book an event by logging on to the Quickchannel platform, use the ‘Live Control’ function to select video and audio inputs and go live as soon as the settings are to their liking.
Quickchannel’s platform allows companies to brand their own player, have dual streams and offer engagement tools, such as polling and moderated chat. By taking advantage of the platform’s features, any conference room with USB video systems for Zoom or Microsoft Teams can be turned into a webinar studio by simply connecting the camera to Quickchannel. Media streams are secure and encrypted, making it the perfect option for training, conferences and sensitive communication.
Viktor concludes: “We always place special focus on user experience and our goal is to make communication more streamlined for our customers. With WebRTC now a key part of our offering, we believe that we’re in a strong position to deliver on this promise and one step closer to achieving our long-term vision of being the leading solution in video, streaming and recording solutions.”
