ReadyTalk Replaces Flash with Temasys WebRTC for Conferencing

ReadyTalk has chosen the Temasys WebRTC plug-in to deliver collaboration between ReadyTalk users across all major web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.

ReadyTalk aims to give their customers premium audio and web conferencing services. ReadyTalk has now replaced its legacy Flash client with WebRTC and the Temasys plug-in, taking full advantage of the capabilities of HTML5.

Temasys empowers business application developers and service providers to rapidly integrate voice, video, chat, and data transfer into any app, on any device, at any scale; enabling browsers and apps to talk to each other using the full capabilities provided by the Web Real-Time Communications standard. The Temasys WebRTC plug-in allows services that leverage WebRTC to work in web browsers that don’t support WebRTC natively.

“Flash is far outmoded, and can pose both security and performance risks. WebRTC is built for web-based voice, video, and data communication. Still, a significant number of potential users need to use web browsers that don’t fully support WebRTC,” said Chip Wilcox, chief product officer for Temasys. “We are pleased to help ReadyTalk make the transition from Flash to WebRTC for all of their users, with our WebRTC plug-in.”

The plug-in helps deliver WebRTC-powered communication to browsers that lack the support of WebRTC. “For our customers who use IE11 and Safari, the Temasys plug-in allows them to have the full ReadyTalk experience without having to use Flash,” added Samantha Morgan, senior product manager at ReadyTalk. “We chose to work with Temasys because of their proven track record and commitment to customer success. They are known for solving issues such as the one we were facing, so selecting Temasys was an easy decision.”

In addition to support for the full WebRTC specification, Temasys offers options for customization and additional functionality for the WebRTC plug-in, like screen sharing support, HTTP proxy support and the ability to use H.264 video, as well as custom branding for installers.
