Seven Reasons for WebRTC Server-Side Media Processing

WebRTC is a powerful technology that allows developers to more simply add real-time communications to their application and services by leveraging the browser. But will the browser be enough to enable real-time communications for every application and use-case?

To answer these questions, leading blogger at and WebRTC spokesman, Tsahi Levent-Levi, developed a whitepaper outlining the Seven Reasons for WebRTC Server-Side Media Processing.   In this paper you will learn about the role of server-side media processing in WebRTC including:

  • Multi-point audio and video architectures
  • When it makes sense to transcode
  • The different kinds of interworking
  • Client-side vs. server-side processing
  • Typical use-cases that require media servers

Tsahi’s extensive work in WebRTC, long history developing media processing technologies, and extensive real-time communications expertise allows him to provide unique insights on how to address many of the real-world challenges WebRTC implementers need to build successful applications and services.
