LOS ANGELES — A developer of highly interoperable, multi-channel software communication systems has released a new version of its VCOM Matrix platform that incorporates WebRTC.
VCOM WebRTC from IntraCom Systems brings “always on,” non-blocking multi-channel communications to VCOM users’ web browsers running on virtually any Smartphone, Tablet, PC, or Mac.
The leading browsers are supported including Chrome, Edge, and Safari.
In addition to browser-based matrix audio communications, VCOM WebRTC incorporates live video capture and streaming, multi-channel video monitoring, geolocation, SIP telephony integration, emergency alerts, pre-recorded messages, and chat.
Video capture and live-streaming is now integrated into the VCOM WebRTC client application, enabling VCOM users to capture content from virtually any Smartphone or webcam and share with other system users.
Multiple streams can be viewed simultaneously in real-time over WiFi, cellular, or satellite connection. VCOM’s new video capability is ideal for a wide array of applications in which situational awareness is required. In news gathering immediate point of view videos can enable more precise decisions to be made between multiple breaking news events.
Multi-Channel Video Monitoring & Routing allows VCOM users to easily program and view one or more video streams from a wide array of RTMP and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) source feeds. This feature is ideal for varied applications including confidence feeds and general security.
Geolocation integration allows VCOM users to view the precise location of other system users, with access to a global-scale map with other users appearing as pin-points beside their name along with longitude/latitude coordinates.
SIP Phone Services are built directly into the VCOM server core and accessible from the VCOM WebRTC user interface. Any number can be dialed through an intuitive onscreen dial pad. In-coming calls display caller ID and can be answered with a click or tap of a selector. VCOM’s telephony integration provides users a seamless way to connect with people and entities not using VCOM through regular telephone services. Virtually an unlimited number of telephone lines are supported, seamlessly integrated with VCOM matrix communications channels.
Chat integration allows VCOM users to send plain-text messages to other users, providing a quick and convenient medium to communicate in high or low noise environments, or any other instance where one does not wish to use VCOM voice services.
Emergency Alerts allow VCOM users to send audible sounds and pre-recorded messages to other system users in mission critical situations.
