TBS develops live broadcast-ready remote appearance tool on Amazon Chime SDK in three months

Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc. (TBS) offers a wide range of services including TV broadcasting, video distribution, film production, and cultural projects. When the pandemic effectively halted in-person studio appearances and guests had to be remotely incorporated into live programs, the company sought an alternative to pre-existing video conferencing solutions, which couldn’t meet its high-quality broadcasting requirements.

To fill this gap, they developed TBS BELL using the Amazon Chime SDK. Read the full case study to learn how the team readied TBS BELL for use in live broadcast in three months using Amazon DynamoDB for video conference room management, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for image hosting, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for running the guest-facing front end application server, and Elastic Load Balancing for scaling.
