TrueConf Adds Support for Open H.264

TrueConf has added support for Cisco’s Open H.264 video codec. This implementation of H.264 provides wide compatibility of TrueConf solutions with third-party video conferencing endpoints and enhanced web conferencing experience.

Cisco open-sourced it’s H.264 codec implementation as a license-free alternative solution to allow its use in WebRTC standard along with VP8 video codec. Open H.264 ensures compatibility between a wide range of video conferencing endpoints. TrueConf has supported Open H.264 codec in TrueConf Server version 4.3.9.

The codec maintains excellent video quality at a high compression rate without additional hardware requirements. Thanks to Open H.264 support, TrueConf optimized its multi-protocol gateway performance. In addition, with new codec you can run WebRTC-based web conferences across mobile devices and legacy video conferencing endpoints without the need for transcoding.
