What is WebRTC? Simply put, WebRTC is real-time communication technology that is built into web browsers. Developers took the audio and video codecs and embedded them into browsers with the vision of making video communications widely available to the masses. Historically, video conferencing relied on hardware-based video room systems, which were cost prohibitive and not widely accessible. Vendors later started producing software-based applications, but they were often specific to a particular provider and either only worked with other products from that vendor or had limited interoperability with other vendors. Today, all major browsers support WebRTC and it is widely used in both social and business applications.
