WebRTC is a series of standard protocols and JavaScript APIs being ratified in the IETF and W3C. The Phono Project is 100% behind this work. Be believe that the ability to establish real-time connections directly between web browsers will change the face of the Internet as we know it.

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.

WebRTC is an emerging web standard that gives web browsers Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple Javascript APIs and no plugins. Through HTML5 and Javascript, developers can create applications with real-time audio and video.

Phono is the easiest way to build a WebRTC application. No need to worry about Javascript differences between browsers, browsers that don't have WebRTC built in, interop with mobile devices, or the complexities of signaling. Complicated Javascript functions dealing with PeerConnection and getUserMedia got you down? Phono makes WebRTC as easy as jQuery.

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.

Take a look at our blog for notes on how to develop with Phono, or download the SDK from the downloads area.

Demo Videos

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:
