[session] Extend User Experience of #WebRTC | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #RTC

Extend User Experience of WebRTC with Unique Sensor Devices WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, will introduce two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a multiple Intel RealSense Depth Camera to scan 3D and build 3D models in real-time, and display as hologram in front of remote participants.

The Five Biggest Trends in Unified Communications (UC) | @CloudExpo #Cloud #UCaaS #Analytics

Thanks to the plethora of communication and messaging apps available to the average user, unified communications (UC) is becoming more important than ever before. UC is a set of products and services designed to give employees a uniform communications experience, integrating different apps and channels to a singular point of interaction. For example, UC might allow a transcript of a voicemail to be delivered to a recipient’s email, enabling a central communication location that comprises multiple mediums at once. Overall, UC has the ability to help companies perform more efficiently, boosting productivity, profitability, and even employee morale. However, UC technology is always evolving, and if you want to stay informed with the latest in the industry, you need to be aware of the latest trends. The Biggest Trends in UC These are some of the most important trends to w... (more)

WebRTC Summit | Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important

Slide Deck: Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important There are many potential applications for WebRTC and for many interoperability is not a requirement. However, this does not mean that there is not a need for interoperability, particularly at the signaling level, for other applications. Many people have dismissed interoperability as a consideration when using WebRTC - often due to the fact that their favored use cases do not require it (and in some cases are even hampered by it). In his session at WebRTC Summit, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Crocodile RCS, looked at the other side and discussed the case for interoperability and explained how WebRTC can be used to enhance and extend existing services in a way provides benefits to service providers and their customers. He concluded with a look at some of the open-source options available today for buildi... (more)
