Plantronics Addresses WebRTC Audio Integration via Wearable Tech
Dec 04, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Plantronics announced a source code that integrates headset functionality for WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) environments, including call control and contextual data such as proximity and state information.
Plantronics reported that its solution offers native integration with WebRTC using HTML5 only, leveraging websockets to integrate Plantronics' headsets and the company's Spokes software into the WebRTC call flow. The use of standard websocket communications means important information about the headset, such as audio sample rate, can be dynamically set by the web application. All of this is accomplished without any additional software (plug-ins) running in the browser.
According to a release, sample code for Plantronics' WebRTC integration is available free of charge at GitHub and can also be accessed through the Plantronics developer community: Plantronics Developer Connection (PDC). Additionally, WebRTC Conference and Expo attendees are invited to stop by the Plantronics booth to see a demonstration first-hand, featuring input from Plantronics, Mozilla, and Cisco.
"Plantronics has been at the forefront of groundbreaking communications innovation for decades and integration with WebRTC is no exception," said Joe Burton, CTO and SVP of technology, development and strategy, Plantronics. "WebRTC is poised to explode as a vehicle for improvements in business workflow and consumer engagement alike, and we're excited to be a part of the effort as it begins to take off."
Plantronics is a provider of audio communications for businesses and consumers.
