The said platform, meet.gov.lk, associates all features of Jitsi, which includes passing everyone’s video and audio to all participants, rather than mixing them first, resulting in lower latency, better quality and, a much more scalable and inexpensive solution. The solution is compatible with WebRTC, the open standard for Web communication and supports advanced video routing concepts such as simulcast, bandwidth estimations and scalable video coding.
To host a meeting at meet.gov.lk, a user only has to click on the link to open page on the web browser (Firefox and Chrome are the preferred browsers). After authenticated with valid user name / password provided by Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) to complete the hosting process, a user can share the room name (or complete URL) with the remote parties. While one is connected, a desktop window (presentation) can be obtained if necessary. If a user needs a password for a room, he/she can add it, and share it with the remote parties.
Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) has facilitated continuously to increase the adoption through dedicated consultation and also produced user guides to use this platform.
