Plantronics Honored with a Visionary Award at the WebRTC Conference & Expo
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Plantronics (News - Alert) (NYSE: PLT) today announced it was recognized at WebRTC
Conference & EXPO with a Visionary Award from TMC,
a global, integrated media company, Systemwide Media and PKE Consulting.
The company recently announced
the first headset integration with WebRTC and delivered a keynote
presentation at the inaugural WebRTC Conference.
Joe Burton, CTO and SVP of technology, development and strategy,
Plantronics and Cary Bran, Senior Director of Advanced Software
Integration at Plantronics, demonstrated seamless integration of
Plantronics headsets into a WebRTC call flow.
"Plantronics is on the forefront of unleashing the power of WebRTC,"
said Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), CEO at TMC. "The company's open APIs allow tight
coupling of headset state and application functionality and moreover
allow the new wave of WebRTC-based solutions to communicate seamlessly
over bluetooth to Plantronics headsets."
For a technical perspective on the integration and sample code for
Plantronics' WebRTC integration, please visit the Plantronics
Developers Connection and read Cary Bran's blog on Integrating
Plantronics Call Control with WebRTC
The WebRTC Conference & Expo Demonstrations and Awards was the highlight
of the event with live demonstrations of applications and solutions
utilizing WebRTC and culminated with six awards being presented. Phil
Edholm of PKE Consulting, Carl Ford of Crossfire Media, Martin Geddes of
Martin Geddes Consulting LTD, Blair Pleasant (News - Alert) of COMMFusion, and Dean
Bubley of Disruptive Analysis acted as judges for the three hour event.
"When we decided to include these demos as part of our program, our
expectation was to see lab work, but in truth we saw demonstrations that
are either ready for market trials or already implemented. Plantronics
clearly stood out and it was an honor to give them this distinction,"
said Carl Ford (News - Alert), CEO of Crossfire Media and a judge of the Demo event.
Conference and Expo is billed as the event where architects,
enablers and users of Web Real-Time Communication (RTC) gather to
advance the standards, and discover the most promising emerging
applications for WebRTC.
