Luxembourg, July 19th, 2016

NoMachine, a global leader in remote access and hosted desktop solutions, today announced the introduction of WebRTC support in its Cloud Server product, thus enabling video and audio streaming when connecting to NoMachine desktops using a WebRTC-enabled browser. Initially in beta status, the functionality will be available to all users of Cloud Server who explicitly enable the feature.

Real-Time Web Communication (WebRTC) allows end-users to participate in audio, video and other forms of collaborative communications without special hardware or additional software plug-ins. By adding support for WebRTC, organizations using NoMachine Cloud Server will be able to deliver audio and video capabilities to all their end users via any browser with WebRTC capabilities such as Firefox, Opera and Chrome.

Dedicated to offering the best remote desktop experience, NoMachine's move to support WebRTC greatly simplifies the way organizations deliver applications and desktops running in the corporate datacenter. NoMachine has traditionally offered HD video and audio streaming capabilities using its native client installed on the local desktop to connect to the remote host. With NoMachine Cloud Server users can start streaming audio and video from their desktop or application to a remote browser. This makes it possible, for instance, to remotely access and control a hosted video application - with low latency and frame accuracy, which are both critical requirements for video professionals.

“Extending NoMachine's enterprise portfolio to support WebRTC is a natural progression and a testament to our continued commitment to our customers, providing a high quality experience and an unparalleled level of productivity", said General Manager, Gaspare Tripi.

This latest release, 5.1.40, also offers a number of further enhancements aimed at users of the NoMachine free version as well as the enterprise-oriented range.
