With RTC, you can build an audio and video communication platform from scratch on any browsers or apps with no audio and video technologies required.

Scenarios

Online Education

Online education breaks through the limitations of time and space of traditional education. The multi-terminal communication of RTC provides students with a more fragmented and innovative learning experience, which helps facilitate the sharing of high-quality teachers and study resources. For vocational education and small-class lectures, RTC makes possible real-time Q&A sessions between students and teachers and provides a wide variety of media functions tailored for the classroom.

Video Customer Service

With pure text or audio-based communication, customer service representatives sometimes are unable to clearly understand and fully solve customer issues. For example, it is often difficult for end users to clearly describe their issues to technical support representatives of large home appliance manufacturers. With the help of RTC, end users can easily initiate direct video calls through an HTML5 page or app to the representatives who can guide them through solving the issues, ultimately enhancing the reputation of the manufacturers.

Interactive Entertainment

The powerful RTC provides online claw crane games with convenient audiovisual access for an excellent interactive experience.

Corporate Work

Large companies often have offices spanning the globe. With RTC, employees can easily access training courses and conferences through a mobile HTML5 page no matter where they are located, not only reducing phone costs, but also helping improve workplace conditions and cut travel expenses for off-site meetings.

Online Recruitment

Traveling across cities for interviews can be a major hassle for job seekers. More and more companies have been conducting interviews over the phone, but the inability for candidates and recruiters to see facial expressions and body language has created obstacles to effective communication. This has led to the increasing popularity of video interviews. With RTC, attending remote interviews is made convenient and easy.

Pricing

RTC is billed per use on a monthly basis: USD3.63 per 1,000 minutes of talk time and USD217.40 per month as monthly service fee. Talk time is calculated by adding up the number of minutes of talk time by all participants. For example, if three people talk for 50 minutes, the billable talk time would be 150 minutes. The price range listed above is for scenarios with a single-channel video resolution of 720p or less. For single-channel video resolution of above 720p, please contact our sales team for a quote.
