It’s been clear for some time now that SVC Codecs are the future. Most of the biggest players (IBM Sametimes, Cisco, MS Skype, …) already use an SVC codec in their product, but what about webRTC? Well, things are getting together to support SVC in webRTC, and while everybody was waiting for VP9, it looks like VP8 will actually be one of the first SVC codec available!
Last week and today took place two major conferences from Microsoft: BUILD (all things MicroSoft) and Edge Web Summit, the later focussed on the Edge Browser. Several announcements about ORTC / WebRTC have been made, especially about video Codec support.
The work done by webrtc-in-webkit (mainly Adam B from Ericsson), and a few other contributors (Centricular, Igalia, Canon, Apple, ……) has now found his way to the preview version of Safari!
This post will provide you with a simple way, backed up by governmental statistics, to see if a medium-sized Singaporean company is doing well, or not.
This post has been written based on exchanges and research with some of my ex-colleagues from the Manpower Research & Statistics Department, Ministry of Manpower and the Cross-disciplinary data-intensive Analytics group (CDA Group) of the Institute for High-Performance Computing (IHPC), part of the Agency for Science Technology And Research (A*STAR).
Every week or so, I get the same questions:
- do we have to chose between webrtc and ortc?
- Is that <feature> supported in this <browser>?
- Is interoperability between this <browser> and that <browser> possible?
- Which <version> of that <browser> should I use?
- How do I test <feature> in <browser>?
Webrtc in Safari was and still is the most popular post on my site. Lots of hits coming directly from search engines. I get a lot of e-mails and questions regarding the current status. I thought it would be a good time to do a follow up.
As some of you already know, I’ve been granted the privilege to join the great team of WebRTCStandards From last week on.
The last installment of webrtc conf and Expo was in Beijing, china, while the original events in USA are scaling down from 2 to 1 a year. The most recent webrtc Conference was in Tokyo, Japan. The next installment of krankyGeek will be in India. There are a lot of signs that the webrtc heat is shifting to Asia.
