Starting today, Amazon AppStream now provides support for the DCV Extension Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK allows customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to build custom extensions for AppStream 2.0 which is powered by DCV technology.

These extensions provide a flexible method to integrate your streaming session to support custom peripherals, native applications, and more.

Custom application or peripheral integrations are established by leveraging a secure virtual channel over the DCV session stream. The flexibility of this SDK allows developers to reuse the same code across multiple platforms, even when multiple CPU architectures are being used. Customers can use the SDK in a number of ways, for example to facilitate custom hardware support, enhance the usability of third-party applications or allow security software to analyze the security posture of the local endpoint. 

To get started with the DCV Extension SDK, review the NICE DCV Extension SDK documentation. The SDK itself can be found in the DCV Extension SDK Github repository. In addition, integration examples of SDK can be found within the DCV Extension SDK Samples Github repository
