The W3C and the IETF are working to bring high quality, secure, realtime audio and video to the browser, with a standard called WebRTC. Voxeo Labs is helping to edit this standard.
Phono supports more than just WebRTC, so if a web browser doesn't have WebRTC built in, Phono will intelligently switch to using Flash, Java, or even native iOS and Android plugins.
To get some ideas of what WebRTC can do for you, our engineers have some screencasts doing some interesting things with WebRTC.
But wait, there's more! We made history this week by placing the first public switched telephone network (PSTN) calls to and from real telephones and the Chrome Canary web browser! This video demonstrates a real phone call from an iPhone to our WebRTC-powered Phono Kitchen Sink demo.
But wait, there's even more! Just in case the previous two videos weren't geeky enough for you, we wanted to demonstrate a real Phono WebRTC phone call in the web browser without even involving a telco service provider! This test was achieved by using our portable wireless cell tower built on OpenBTS along with a standard Nokia mobile phone. Check this out:
