TenHands WebRTC API Powers Real-time Video & Audio Conferencing in Any Browser Application Collaboration, Enterprise Social & CRM Apps Add Video to Existing Workflows

Sunnyvale, CA, Nov 13, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- TenHands, Inc., the innovative platform provider that powers free, easy video collaboration, today announced the availability of its API and SDK to add real-time video collaboration to any browser-based application. Web and mobile applications can easily integrate real-time video and audio conferencing in lock step with the existing workflows that users are already familiar with.

Today the API allows for point-to-point and multipoint calling, screen share and chat for both Mac and Windows. In the coming weeks, TenHands will add customization options, recording and support for mobile platforms. All applications that embed TenHands powered video or audio gain access to TenHands 100% virtualized Amazon-based cloud infrastructure for managing media and signaling, presence information, administering users and, most importantly, delivering a commercial service at scale.

"Embedding real-time video via TenHands is a natural complement to Retrieve's rGuides," said Dave Arnold, CEO of Retrieve ( "The easy integration of TenHands video creates immediate benefit for our customers, from contractors and architects who need to collaborate via video conferencing to meet delivery dates to educators who want to enhance Retrieve's archived, searchable video content with live real-time video that fits neatly into Retrieve's existing work flow and user experience." "CRM and collaboration apps have needed something like TenHands for more than 5 years. Users of these applications should be engaging in real-time communications in the context of the business information they need to do their jobs and the TenHands API enables exactly that," said Denis Pombriant, Managing Principal of Beagle Research Group, LLC.

"Our language instructors and students need to communicate via video within Eleutian's application workflow. After assessing the market, we're excited to evaluate real-time video communications powered by TenHands as the best way to deliver a great language learning experience," said Spencer Lewis, VP Engineering & IT for English as a Second Language provider Eleutian.

"We're at the 3rd phase of video communications: ubiquitous access. In the past, video conferencing was confined to special purpose rooms, took place in a separate application or was enabled with fragile Flash based offers. TenHands API allows for real-time video communications to take place in app, in work flow, in the browser and in the cloud," said Mark Weidick, TenHands' CEO.
