WebRTC Integration

Nomad introduces Real Time Video Delivery powered by WebRTC

Nomad is now providing real time video delivery powered by WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) in Nomad’s intuitive cloud-based content and asset management platform. WebRTC provides web browsers and mobile applications with real-time communication capabilities to build powerful video and voice services.

Customers need sub-second latency across many different industries. High quality video with absolutely minimal latency is mandatory for certain services to be viable. There is a need to create interactive live streams for mission critical real time web applications delivering command, control and communications. An example of this is law enforcement drones, where live video is critical for drone control as well as real time situational awareness in pursuit or monitoring scenarios. Additional challenges also arise when operating in low bandwidth environments that still require continuous live video, e.g. remote locations with poor bandwidth coverage or natural disaster situations. In these more restrictive environments support for multiple browsers and device support without installation of software or plugins to support low latency is also a must.

Delivering live streaming video with the lowest latency possible is now available with WebRTC support in the Nomad platform. Ultra-Low latency with UDP-based WebRTC sends interactive live video streams anywhere across the world from broadcaster to subscriber in near-instant, sub-500 milliseconds of round trip latency. Quality Streams provided by industry-first WebRTC Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) that adjusts to network conditions and NACK resends critical dropped packets for consistent, high quality streaming even in the most difficult conditions. Easily start and stop the live broadcast with 1-Click Broadcast “easy button”. Once set up within Nomad, the broadcast stays in sync with the camera and turns on/off without Nomad administrator intervention. Multi-Browser Support with Web Standard certified WebRTC can encode and decode directly in all modern browsers, plugin-free on any device.

Backed by the power of AWS Media Services, Nomad can intake and distribute an unlimited number of simultaneous video streams. Nomad also offers live channel management and broadcasting, stream scheduling, DRM support, deep search, interoperability with Adobe Creative Suite and Zoom, and many other advanced features to support video operations.  Serverless and scalable, Nomad is deployable within hours and has pre-built integration for a multitude of AWS and 3rd party services and systems.

About WebRTC – Real-time communication for the web

With WebRTC, you can add real-time communication capabilities to your application that works on top of an open standard. It supports video, voice, and generic data to be sent between peers, allowing developers to build powerful voice- and video-communication solutions. The technology is available on all modern browsers as well as on native clients for all major platforms. The technologies behind WebRTC are implemented as an open web standard and available as regular JavaScript APIs in all major browsers. For native clients, like Android and iOS applications, a library is available that provides the same functionality. The WebRTC project is open-source and supported by Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla, amongst others.
