Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
TenHands, Inc., the innovative platform provider that powers free, easy video collaboration, today announced the availability of integrated group video conferencing service as a Facebook app to enable Facebook’s 800 million users to connect with friends via real-time, high-definition video. This application further demonstrates the power of TenHands’ browser-centric, HTLM5 cloud-based architecture as a delivery platform for real-time communications.
TenHands’ platform can deliver real-time communications in any browser-based application, from Enterprise Social and Collaboration Applications like Jive, Salesforce and Box to applications that are more oriented toward consumers such as Facebook or Yahoo. TenHands integrates seamlessly within the workflow of the host application so that end users gain access to video as an easy-to-use mode of communication.
“The story here is the power of the TenHands platform to enable real-time communications. TenHands’ vision is to enable real-time communications in every browser-based application. The browser we live in on-line is going to revolutionize the way we communicate at much the same scale the internet changed how we access information 15 years ago," explained Mark Weidick, Co-Founder and CEO of TenHands.
The TenHands Facebook app lets users see when friends are available and launch free, high-definition group video calls, all seamlessly within Facebook.
"We launched the TenHands Facebook application on the heels of Strand Consult’s report and a recent eWeek article ‘Facebook Could Be a Skype Killer With a Copycat App’ which highlights an $800 million revenue opportunity for Facebook via the addition of Skype-like communications features,” stated Jack Blaeser, Co-Founder and CCO of TenHands. “We see analogous opportunities for all social and collaboration applications to extend real-time communications to their own services via TenHands to add value for their users and to create differentiation, revenue and profit for their businesses.”
TenHands provides an easy to implement API built on the groundbreaking WebRTC effort to enable real-time video within any browser-based application.
