This particular article details the development of an audio/video conferencing application by vteams by the name Lango LLC.
Whilst, the previous article published in this series talked about the perks of studying online. An extremely important and vital aspect of the entire system is audio/video conferencing, among the rest.
Without the participation of these communication solutions coming into practice, the whole order can never be implemented practically.
This particular article demonstrates the development of an audio/video conferencing application by vteams by the name Lango LLC.
The article will give you guidelines to help you develop the application for your own self, where you can customize, and alter it according to your requirements.
So buckle up and read ahead.
Lango LLC—Audio/Video Conferencing Project by Vteam
Requirements of the Project
The vteam was required to build a robust and highly available audio and video conferencing solution for the client. This was also to be placed in the accompanying iOS, Android, and Web Application so that anyone could call an interpreter on the fly. Previously only “On-Location” interpretation sessions were being held, so this solution was proposed to have all-time connectivity anywhere in the world to make video conferencing readily available for everyone.
Twilio is a third party API service that provides different communication solutions, such as an Audio/Video API, Messaging service, SIP trunking to name a few. This was an obvious choice for our solution as we needed a service that would handle the codec and quality resolutions more seamlessly. As a result, it would leave us with a simple interface with which we could initiate and monitor video conferencing and calls.
The solution opted for video conferencing was designed to have three phases:
In the first phase, the vteams engineers added Twilio SDK to the server-side project which enabled them to authenticate with the said service. Since this was a VOIP call, resultantly they had to handle everything from searching for a specific interpreter, to call and handle all the events. This process also included people connecting in and out of the call and finally to end the call and bill the customer in a video conferencing.
All the customer had to do was to select the language or multiple languages they spoke and the needed interpretation from the contrary. The rest of the process was handled by the efficient system designed by the team.
Firstly, all the interpreters that spoke that language were searched and were then pinged via push notifications (APNS or FCM). As soon as any interpreter answered the call, the vigilant engineers connected the two “Legs” of the call.
After the server-side of the video conferencing code was completed, the team moved on to the client-side in phase 2.
In the second phase of the process, after the server-side video conferencing code was completed, vteams began the implementation on the client-side applications simultaneously. Twilio SDK was integrated into the iOS, Android, and Web Application for uninterrupted video conferencing services. As soon as a call or a video conferencing call was received the selected media was connected to the call.
In case of an audio call, the microphone, and with video conferencing, the team had to connect the microphone and the camera as well as handle any hardware restrictions that could create a distortion.
The customer also had the option to add a third party into the call, be it any other interpreter using our VOIP solution or a simple landline call over POTS.
