The black Khaki Titanium worn by Jack Ryan (played by Chris Pine) is the secret agent of watches, hiding its rugged construction beneath a sophisticated and elegant design.  Like the character who wears it, the watch lives a double life; dressed for success, but ready for action.

The multi-functional Khaki Flight Timer worn by the character William Harper (played by Academy Award®-winner Kevin Costner) was modified especially for the film by Hamilton, who continues a decades-long tradition of collaborating with studios and filmmakers to create custom timepieces for movie characters.

Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine, "Star Trek") from his quiet double life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.  

Ryan appears to be just another New York executive to his friends and loved ones, but his enlistment into the CIA secretly goes back years. He was brought in as a brainy Ph.D. who crunches global data - but when Ryan ferrets out a meticulously planned scheme to collapse the U.S. economy and spark global chaos, he becomes the only man with the skills to stop it. Now, he's gone fully operational, thrust into a world of mounting suspicion, deception and deadly force. Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a brilliant Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where no one can seem to be trusted, yet the fate of millions rests on his finding the truth.  With the urgency of a lit fuse, he's in a race to stay one step ahead of everyone around him.  

Produced by Mace Neufeld, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, David Barron and Mark Vahradian. Based on characters created by Tom Clancy. Written by Adam Cozad and David Koepp. Directed by Kenneth Branagh.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
