What Is It?

WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is an open-source app that allows you to use media communications such as video and voice between the device and a browser. In essence, it’s like using the web app version of the software. On the Cynap, we have Panopto and Zoom set up to use via WebRTC.

How to Use It

If you wish to record your presentation or have an interactive class with a guest speaker online, you may want to use either the Panopto or Zoom apps available on WebRTC. If you wish to use the camera in the classroom for a recording or meeting, you will need to use the Cynap and either Panopto or Zoom via WebRTC.
