Zoom vs 100ms

How do Zoom and 100ms compare? And what does VideoSDK offer?

Zoom Video SDK

The Zoom Video SDK provides a reliable video conferencing experience similar to the original Client, but with added flexibility. It encompasses a wide range of services, including audio, video, chat, screen sharing, data streams, server-side APIs, and webhooks. This extensive set of features allows developers to create customized and immersive video communication experiences within their applications.

100ms

100ms is a cloud platform that empowers developers to integrate video and audio conferencing into Web, Android, and iOS applications. The platform offers REST APIs, SDKs, and a user-friendly dashboard, making it easy to capture, distribute, record, and display live interactive audio and video content.

How VideoSDK make a difference

While considering options for embedding real-time communications in your products, both 100ms and Zoom are viable choices. 100ms provides a modern solution with user-friendly APIs and built-in collaborative elements. On the other hand, Zoom offers a reliable platform with the ability to handle a larger number of users.

However, 100ms may have some drawbacks, including higher latency and limited regional server support. Zoom, on the other hand, lacks certain modern features like network degradation management and a low-code UI builder.
