Acision Offers Up WebRTC-enabled SDK at Orlando Hackathon
The developer community converged in Orlando this weekend at the Comcast NBCUniversal Hackathon. The forge by Acision team was there encouraging developers to create prototypes using its new forge software development kit, which supports WebRTC.
The support for WebRTC means developers can more easily integrate rich communications such as click-to-call buttons, messaging, presence, recording and storage, rich media file transfer, and two-way voice or video chat capabilities into their projects, which may include new or existing applications or websites. Gaming, entertainment, and social networking are key areas in which developers can bring these real-time communications capabilities to the table, noted forge by Acision, which of course tied into the interests of the user base at the Florida event.
The forge by Acision SDK is a self-service developer portal, for which the company is offering 90 days of free access. This includes a bundle of video and voice minutes, IP and presence messages, and a $5 credit to send SMS messages.
“The forge by Acision portal was purposely built to give any developer the power to inject smart communication features into any application (Web, iOS and Android), service and website, all from the cloud,” says Eric Bilange, head of the Acision’s rich engagement service division. “As a flexible and easy to use communications framework, almost anyone can leverage our latest and greatest toolkits to create contextual communications within their app.”
Version 2.0 of the SDK is slated for availability in the second half of this year. That version will support a broader set of voice and videoconferencing, and telephony capabilities.
In other recent news from the messaging company, Acision last year came out with an interactive guide called the Mobile Gameplan that is aimed at helping businesses understand some of the key aspects of a winning mobile strategy.
