Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global leader in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation, has launched Vonage Video Express to make it easier and faster for developers to leverage the Vonage Video API for multiparty calls. Vonage Video Express truly democratizes video and makes every web developer a video developer. Instead of taking days, weeks, or even months to integrate video into an application, a developer is now able to integrate video within hours with just a few lines of code.
Multiparty video calls involve multiple participants sharing their audio and video streams while simultaneously subscribing to participants’ streams. Vonage Video Express provides support for simplified and optimized Video API usage, including automatic management of rooms, participants, layout, quality and experience.
Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, video meetings often connected a single person or team to another person or team. When virtually every business around the world shifted overnight to remote delivery of services and work from home models, the volume of employees signing in individually, with their unique network connections and devices, presented challenges in scalability and flexibility for existing customer applications leveraging video. With Video Express, Vonage is making it simpler for businesses who want to build best-in-class video experiences for multiple participants, but don’t have the skill level or resources required in-house to implement customization or manage the quality without additional support and tools.
