Amazon Chime SDK lets developers add intelligent real-time audio, video, screen share, and messaging to their web applications. Media Pipelines allow developers to capture the contents of Amazon Chime SDK WebRTC media sessions to the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket of their choice. Starting today, the Amazon Chime SDK now has media pipeline API endpoints in US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) AWS Regions.

Customers can now use API endpoints in the same AWS Region for both media pipelines and WebRTC media session. This simplifies application architecture, and enables high availability architectures that use API endpoints in multiple AWS Regions. Customers who require endpoints with FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules, now have a choice of US East (Northern Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions.

The AWS SDK includes a new namespace to use the new API endpoints. To learn more about the Amazon Chime SDK, media capture pipeline, and how they use AWS Regions and migrating to the new namespace, review the following resources:
