A little bit about Airtime: 

Our mission is to power companies building the next generation of online social experiences. We believe in an original promise of the Internet: the potential of connecting people with real-time digital experiences. We see tremendous opportunity in weaving online real-time social functionality into existing products and services. We supply brands with the tools to drive engagement on their own platforms, creating new monetization opportunities. It is time to recapture these customer relationships from the interim solution of driving engagement to third-party social sites.

We have a cloud-based engine of real-time audio and video tools, combined with plug-and-play social functionality. Our product offering is a suite of SDKs that can be combined into existing sites and apps. In addition, we have a deep expertise in online social that can be harnessed to deliver custom and effective integrations. Over our ten-year history in the space, we have built powerful, battle-tested infrastructure capable of handling carrier-grade scale.
