WebRTC: a trend worth watching in 2013

If Ian Grayson – who writes for the Australian Hydrapinion website – is right we’ll be using video conferencing a lot more next year.

In WebRTC: a trend worth watching in 2013 he talks about technology allowing you to make video calls using nothing more than a standard web browser. WebRTC stands for web real-time communications. There are no special apps and no need for dedicated video suites. It looks set to make things easier than Skype.

We’re often told video will be the application for the UFB fibre network being rolled out around New Zealand so the technology appears to have turned up at the right moment.
