Bistri Wins WoW Factor Award at WebRTC Conference & Expo III - Santa Clara
At WebRTC Expo, Bistri was Excited to Announce and Demo a Killer Revamp of its Android App, as well as a Chrome App for Desktop and a version that will be compatible with Google Glass.
and… tada!!! Bistri Wins WoW Factor Award for its incredible demo of a video call from a simple QRcode.
Then Bistri’s CTO Emmanuel Venisse made a video call from Google Glass to a real Bistri user on the Web.
The Wow Factor Award was given to the demo that most had the judges surprised and shows innovation and thought. The award recognizes the industry contribution of the Bistri WebRTC products. As Bistri becomes a seasoned veteran and 3-time Gold Sponsor of WebRTC Conference and Expo today, it is also celebrating some exciting news just in time for the holidays.
Bistri is a WebRTC app that lets you make video calls in just one click. No installation, no plugins, no contacts to add prior to the call. Bistri works with Google Chrome and Firefox for PC, Mac, Chrome OS iOS and Android.
New Bistri App for Android — for Cool Kids Only
Bistri is thrilled to unveil the redesign of their new Android app—now with a sleeker interface and a timeline-style dashboard. It will be in private beta mode (http://beta.mobile.bistri.com) for one more month, but will be unleashed in January 2014.
Bistri App for Chrome = Piece of Cake
Once you download the Bistri app from the Google Chrome Web Store, you will be able to launch it from your desktop. It will run outside the browser and behave exactly as a desktop application —what more could you ask for?
Bistri and Google Glass — True Love?
Google Glass is the new frontier… and Bistri is trailblazing! Bistri is proud to be the first WebRTC video-calling application for Google Glass. Now there’s no need to log in or have a Google Plus account in order to enjoy one click, free video calling on your favorite pair of smart glasses.
Bistri’s telecommunication platform is based on WebRTC, an open-source voice and video technology for Web-based real-time communications and supported by industry leaders like Google, Mozilla and Opera. And unlike some other video services, Bistri calls are encrypted which makes it safe from snooping!
UCStrategies: Bistri at WebRTC Conference & Expo
Jerome Calvo and Emmanuel Venisse of Bistri provide a demo of making a video call using Bistri’s WebRTC solution. At the WebRTC Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, CA, Bistri demonstrated how simple it is to use their solution to make video calls across various devices, share information and images, and more.
Bistri, the start-up that invented ‘1-click’ video calls for mobile and Web, will be exhibiting at WebRTC Conference & Expo, booth #505.
Bistri lets you make video calls in just ‘1-click’, no installation, plugins or contacts to add prior to the call… Based on WebRTC, Bistri is the next big disruption in video calling.
For the 3rd time, Bistri is proud to be gold sponsor of the Longest Running Global WebRTC Ecosystem Event.
Bistri has been rewarded at the two first editions of the conference:
- “beyond the call" award, in San Francisco, in November 2012
- “easiest to apply" award in Atlanta, in June 2013
That’s why this time Bistri needs to over-perform and make a demo that blast on stage!
Bistri will also live demo:
- New Android App
- Video calls solution on Google Glass, the 1st WebRTC app available on Google Glass

Bistri, the easiest way to make a video call
Congratulations! You’ve just created your Bistri account, and you are happily sharing your Bistri link around you. Your Bistri link can be included in your email signature or it can be a QR code on your business cards, or a link on your LinkedIn profile. Now you are wondering what kind of experience users clicking on your link will get on a mobile device.
You can try it on your Android tablet by entering your Bistri link in the Chrome browser. After entering your nickname, automagically your computer connected on Bistri.com is ringing.
If you are using an iPhone, an iPad, the video calls are not available yet, but you can already chat, send some pictures to the Bistri user.
If the Bistri user clicks on the Video Conferencing Button, the permanent link is sent through the chat to the Mobile user. One click and he lands on the video conference room. If someone share his screen over the video conference, the Mobile user will enjoy it too.
Bistri launch the Universal Video Conferencing!
We’ve announced a few weeks ago that everyone on Bistri has his own Video Conference room, up to 4 participants.
One unique and simple link to join your conference: bistri.me/username/conf
As always on Bistri, it’s a frictionless new feature. The persons who joins your conference doesn’t need to create an account on Bistri, or install anything.
Now you can invite anyone you know in one click!
1-Select a contact, whether he is on Facebook, Google+, Yahoo…
2-Click on the Conference button
Your permanent conference link is automatically sent to your contact through the chat:
Your conference room is automatically launched in another window. You just have to decide if you want to share your Camera in SD mode, HD mode (if you choose this one, it might make your computer and/or the other person’s lag), or if you want to share your screen. Screen sharing feature is available in Google Chrome 27+ with “Enable screen capture support in getUserMedia()” flag activated in chrome://flags.
You can even join the conference two times in two different tabs:
- to share your camera
- to share your screen
This is how the support video conference room look like:
For the moment, it is a full WebRTC feature, which means that you need Firefox 22+ or Chrome 23+, it doesn’t work on IE nor Safari yet.
Bistri Universal Conferencing is coming up also with an update on the WordPress Widget. Now the link behind your Bistri Button can be your Bistri Link, or your Conference Link. Your visitors have nothing to download or install, no account to create, and don’t need to be your “friend”…
