Next week TokBox will be attending the Gartner Catalyst Conference in San Diego, August 11-14. We’re looking forward to being a part of the conversation about how technologists can leverage mobile, cloud, and big data to drive more operational effectiveness and competitive advantage. At TokBox we passionately believe that real-time communications, and WebRTC in particular, should be a core component of this conversation.
Throughout the course of the conference, the TokBox team will provide insight into the growing popularity of WebRTC within enterprise applications. The impact is beyond traditional communications systems and that is exactly what our CTO, Badri Rajasekar, will be talking about during his session:
With our fourth WebRTC Conference & Expo now a week behind us, we wanted to take some time to reflect on the event. There was never a dull moment for Team TokBox in Atlanta. We gave a keynote address, participated in several panel discussions, gave a live demo of our video driver and manned our bustling booth complete with a Bridgestone Golf B-FIT kiosk.
Hot off the heels of our OpenTok 2.0 Archiving API pricing and storage announcement we’re excited to announce that our Archiving API has now gone into production.
You can find out more about the features of this API in our previous post or by taking a look at our docs page and here is a quick summary just in case.
Following on from our OpenTok archiving and storage announcement we’re excited to fill you in on some updates we are making to our OpenTok iOS and Android SDKs 2.2 that are going into production. What started out as internal engineering project has paved the way to the release of a suite of valuable mobile features which have become a formal part of the product offering, setting OpenTok further apart from other WebRTC platforms.
Here at TokBox HQ we’ve spent the past couple of weeks getting excited and getting ready for the WebRTC Conference & Expo taking place in Atlanta June 17-19. For those who have not been before, this semi-annual expo is the longest running WebRTC event where attendees have the opportunity to meet service providers, attend training sessions, learn about the latest developments and hear from industry experts.
Here at TokBox we are always trying to expand and improve our range of features, tailoring these features in line with real world developer needs. That’s why we are excited to announce some pricing and storage updates.
We’re still receiving a lot of feedback on our beta so we’d like to extend a big ‘thank you’ to our community for this.
Last year TokBox asked over 1,000 professionals from around the world about WebRTC. We wanted to find out how people were using it, the projects they were working on and their plans for making use of WebRTC in the future. It was interesting to find out about the various use cases and we learnt a lot about what people hoped to see from the platform in the future.
We were unaware, until recently, about the shocking lack of Speech-Language Pathologists across the US and the world. With growing demand of special education departments, rural districts, and culturally diverse students, too many young people are simply not being taught how to communicate effectively.
So we were delighted when TokBox partner DoubleRobotics teamed up with TinyEye Therapy Services to address this shortage using innovative technology, including OpenTok.
TinyEYE have taken the DoubleRobotic moving robots with in-built live video technology capability, and despatched them remotely to deliver speech therapy classes to students that really need it. Behind every robot there is a certified speech therapist, able to interact and build a relationship with the students, ultimately improving the quality and increasing the scope of support that can be offered.
