Dear ASR league members, dear Go friends !
… as we like to progress as Go players behind the board steadily, the ASR server as platform for the monthly league system shall be developed steadily to fulfill the deeds and wishes of our league members, and for Go players around the globe who are linked with us. As Guillaume D. (4 Dan) aka litchee as the new ASR manager since 1st July 2016 (see his first post) targets at to lead the ASR league into a competitively future today starts the pilot project ASR-RTC and it’s beta test phase 1.0. (Rec.: You can do the self test on bottom of this page here.) All features for now are limited for up to 50 monthly unique active ASR users. The test protocol runs on the basis of WebRTC (Web Real Time Communication). It is a standard (API definition) which exists since 2011 as an open-source projet (founded by Google) that supports browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat, and P2P file sharing. Mobile Telephone (VoIP) is another feather which is being implemented since November 2015. Why ASR-RTC ? – The ASR league can …
- organize video and/or audio and text based teachings and/or reviews
- support league members and users to utilize the browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox*) without the need for additional applications or plug-ins
- use the encryption for the media poriding a higher a higher security level (than most currently available commercial systems)
Other relevant benefits by using the WebRTC standard are:
- cost savings (lower bandwidth for streaming = affordable data volume)
- rich communication between the ASR league members without the need for special applications and servers
- un-interrupted communication keeping its league members on the web page and at the same time start a voice and video call
- using state of the art encryption standards
