(Atlanta - June 25, 2014) Doug Pelton of Priologic, creator of EasyRTC, received a Pioneer Award at the WebRTC Conference & Expo IV in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 19, 2014.
"The Pioneer Award recognizes those who have made a unique contribution to the growth and evolution of WebRTC," said PKE Consulting's Phil Edholm, who produced the conference in Atlanta. PKE Consulting, together with TMC, and Systemwide Media, presented the Pioneer Award.
EasyRTC is Priologic's popular open source toolkit for building highly secure, enterprise WebRTC applications. The WebRTC API is always changing, so EasyRTC provides an easy-to-use client-side API that remains more constant, so developers can get applications built without having to be WebRTC gurus.
"This award represents a team effort, and I certainly wouldn't be here on my own," said Doug Pelton, CEO of Priologic, which develops, maintains, and updates the EasyRTC open source SDK. "It's an exciting time - WebRTC is projected to be used by over 4 billion devices by 2017. What HTML did to content in the 1990's, WebRTC has the potential to do to file sharing and telephony."
In all, 64 were presented with WebRTC Pioneer Awards. The complete list of winners can be found here.
The award comes as Priologic released the first-ever open source WebRTC plugin for IE at WebRTC IV in Atlanta. This new IE plugin is released under a BSD2 license to allow any WebRTC team to use it and improve on it, either within their commercial products or as open source.
"At WebRTC IV, Priologic also unveiled an EasyRTC iOS Native Client, EasyRTC Android Native Client, EasyRTC C++ native client and a new EasyRTC 3rd party adapter," said Pelton. "The EasyRTC team worked very hard over the past six months to get ready for Atlanta, and we had a wonderful time there."
As a recognized leader in the WebRTC community, Priologic's mission is to normalize and hide frequent WebRTC API changes for developers.
Priologic's EasyRTC (easyrtc.com) is the easiest way to enable browser-to-browser voice and video chat without ever needing to install plugins or worry about security or privacy issues. Right now, EasyRTC can be used on over a billion devices worldwide, a number that is expected to grow dramatically over the next few years as other browsers support WebRTC, and WebRTC mobile devices proliferate.
EasyRTC uses the emerging Web-Based Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) framework to turn popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera into telephony engines so that devices can connect via IM, video, or voice chat.
The company works constantly to update EasyRTC, a full-stack open source toolkit suitable for building highly secure enterprise WebRTC applications. EasyRTC is a bundle of web applications, code snippets, client libraries and server components, written and documented by Priologic to work right out of box.
