Vidyo and Google Collaborate on WebRTC

Vidyo is continuing its relationship with Google to enhance the video quality within WebRTC

Vidyo, Inc. announced that it is continuing its relationship with Google to enhance the video quality within WebRTC. This agreement will help align the technology roadmaps of both companies and enables Google to use Vidyo’s Scalable Video Coding (SVC) extensions as part of WebRTC. Under the agreement, Vidyo will develop a scalable video extension for the VP9 codec as part of the WebRTC client open source project.

“Vidyo has been a great partner, working with Google to provide a high quality video solution for Hangouts,” said Chee Chew, VP of Engineering at Google. “By continuing our relationship, we will now combine the power of WebRTC with the benefits of Vidyo’s technology to deliver the best possible experience for our users.”

Pioneered by Vidyo, SVC is now recognized by most leading players as the way to deliver a great video conferencing experience over the Internet. SVC enables better error resilience and allows an optimized experience for multi-user video calls. WebRTC provides the ability to participate in video calls without separate client or plug-in installation. WebRTC with scalability will give web developers access to better video quality coupled with the no-install advantage. Chrome is expected to be the first browser to support the scalable version of WebRTC and, together, Vidyo and Google will promote this version with relevant standards bodies.

“This is great news for the WebRTC community and takes our relationship with Google to the next level,” said Ofer Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Vidyo. “Google is known for its ability to embrace and promote technological innovations. WebRTC provides a vision of new communications possibilities for video enabled web applications and by leveraging Vidyo’s expertise in SVC, we will jointly create a path to accessible quality video.”

Since the launch of Vidyo in 2008, the Vidyo platform, now branded as VidyoWorks™, has enabled innovative new solutions and service offerings for a variety of OEM partners including Google+ Hangouts. Vidyo and Google plan to develop additional capabilities to further optimize the Hangouts experience for enterprise users.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
