Video Сonference Application

Solution

The main features were implemented - audio and video conference, chat, screen sharing,

document sharing, conference room to youtube and Facebook stream, video record on server

side, possibility to connect to the conference for both web-clients and via SIP-phone.

We developed the user interface part on javascript so the server is receiving as less load as

possible to improve the “conferencing” part performance.

We used WebRTC for the audio and video broadcast to make the application applicable to

most of the users, signaling through xmpp have made the app online and realtime. All media

and signalling is transmitted through the server to save the incoming traffic, and on top of that

we also implemented simulcast for even more traffic savings and video quality optimization.

For the back-end we used prosody which is perfectly works with XMPP protocol,

crossplatform, pretty much extensible and have very low resource usage, we also have used

jitsi-videobridge due to its applicability with WebRTC, low latency and its advances video

routing concepts. Also we have used Asterisk for PBX switching system integration to

application and which made possible of VoIP and PSTN connection to the web-conferences.
