We are excited to announce the general availability of Dolby.io Communications Web SDK 3.9, which brings a significant improvement to the scale and performance of real-time communications in your applications.
Scalability is essential for successful web applications to meet growing market demands. Moreover, while maximum audience size is important, developers and product teams who build online experiences need to ensure people can interact with one another through voice and video, not just join as a passive viewer. From Live Event platforms that drive audience engagement to Virtual Worlds where people go to socialize and meet friends, applications need to be developed with scalability in mind.
With this new Web SDK, you can now stream high-quality audio and video to more than 100,000 concurrent viewers with our Communications APIs and global WebRTC CDN. This means you can create immersive and engaging experiences for large-scale events, including townhalls, keynote presentations, webinars, and virtual world scenarios, using the Dolby.io platform.
New SDK features
- Scale a Dolby.io conference to more than 100,000 concurrent viewers
- Shared Browser Audio, allowing users to play online videos while sharing the audio into the conference
- Play Audio Track, which enables users to play an audio track into a conference from their desktop
- Simulcast support for the VP8 codec in Safari to optimize streams for resolution and bandwidth
Whether you are building a web app for live streaming, conferencing, or collaborating, Dolby.io Web SDK 3.9 will help you deliver the best possible sound and vision to your audience. You can leverage the power of Dolby for in-app spatial communications, and our global WebRTC CDN to ensure that your media reaches viewers in real-time. Dolby.io Web SDK 3.9 is easy to integrate and compatible with most browsers and platforms.
“How do you scale audience engagement? There are NOT a lot of platforms that understand the needs of the event space… As soon as you start scaling to 100 people, 1,000 people, or 100,000 people, the presenter needs to be able to feel the energy of everyone watching and make sure they are engaged… the Dolby SDK is the only one that understands the needs of the industry.”Elias Puurunen, Founder of Tractus Events
