TrueConf is a Russian company that produces software-based video conferencing and unified communications solutions. Company’s applications are designed for usage in conference or meeting rooms, at workplaces, and on mobile devices. The company is headquartered in Moscow.

SVC-based architecture[edit]

TrueConf’s software architecture is based on Scalable Video Coding (SVC). During a multipoint video conference each conference participant receives an individual set of video streams adjusted in accordance with bandwidth, network connection, and endpoint’s capabilities. As opposed to SVC technology, traditional video conferencing based on Multipoint Control Units (MCUs) performs transcoding server-side, which is not scalable thus unsuitable for large deployments. TrueConf considers SVC-based architecture its competitive advantage as it significantly lowers infrastructure costs and easily adapts to any necessary device.
