Singapore, January 21, 2013. Today, Temasys Communications announced the formation of Temasys Laboratory of Communications (TEMASYS LABS), which will build an R&D capability in the field of Real Time Visual Communications with a strong emphasis on HTML5 and WebRTC. Temasys Labs development effort will be spear headed by Dr Alex Gouaillard, who after leading groups at Caltech and Harvard, had set up and led two research labs for the Singaporean Agency for Science, Technology And Research (A*STAR) before joining Temasys.
The technologies at play in the video conferencing and visual communications fields are rapidly changing. The emergence of HTML5 and more specifically WebRTC will revolutionize the way in which we communicate in our business and social lives. At the same time, most of the existing telecommunication and VoIP solution are migrating from hardware based in house solutions to hosted (cloud based) and software solutions. The world of communications is changing around us – and faster then you think!
By providing its current and future customers with the level of technical awareness, and solutions, that are required to achieve excellence in real time visual communication, Bill Lewis, Temasys’ Managing Director believes that the investment in Temasys Labs, and a reputation for technical excellence, will pay for itself by creating the ability to meet the most demanding customers needs, help customers transition into new technologies, and bring some exciting products and solutions to the business an social marketplace. And ensure that Singapore is a recognized Center of Excellence in the new technology.
Today, the critical mass of expertise in the new, emerging communication technologies, are located in the USA, with an emerging presence of Chinese companies (including China Unicom, Huawei, and Ten Cent) and Korean (Samsung and KAIST).
Bill Lewis believes that Temasys has a significant role to play in creating a core of the latest technical expertise in Singapore, and for a Singaporean business to take part of creating next generation Real Time Communication standards and solutions. In keeping with the Singapore Governments desire to create and encourage new technologies to be fostered in the City State, Temasys, by the creation of Temasys Labs, is taking the strategic decision to build a strong capability in the future technologies that are required for “next generation” communications. Through the world standards body W3C, Temasys will also take a role in defining the emerging web based communications standards, placing Singapore alongside the greats in the industry. Temasys Labs expertise includes a wide range of relevant technologies in the fields of Transport and Signaling Protocols, Security, Instant Messaging, Screen Sharing and Collaboration, Web Applications (HTML5) and Mobile Application on iOS and Andriod.
A “world first” browser-to-browser multiparty video conference solution was demonstrated in December, 2012 and Temasys is currently finalizing a new version that can connect it’s WebRTC Client to legacy video conferencing systems.
