Amazon Chime SDK

Embed proven real-time communication capabilities in your applications.

The Amazon Chime SDK is a set of real-time communications components that developers can use to quickly add audio calling, video calling, and screen sharing capabilities to their own applications. Developers can leverage the same communication infrastructure and services that power Amazon Chime, an online meetings service from AWS, and deliver engaging experiences in their applications. For instance, they can add video calling to a health application so patients can consult with doctors on health issues remotely, or audio calling to a company website so customers can quickly connect with sales. By using the Amazon Chime SDK, developers can eliminate the cost, complexity, and friction of creating and maintaining their own real-time communication infrastructure and services.

Use cases

Telemedicine

Embed real-time communication in your medical and health applications. Connect medical professionals and patients over video for remote consultations during out-patient or in-facility care.

Gaming

Build high quality multi-player audio and video interactions in to your gaming apps. Elevate the gaming experience by enabling geographically separated players to coordinate plays and strategies together in real-time.

Contact Center

Bring video experiences to your contact center application. Enable your support specialists to interact with customers face to face and using screen sharing to make your interactions more engaging.

Unified Communications

Power your unified communications applications with proven real-time communication infrastructure and services on AWS. Deliver high quality audio and video capabilities to enable your customers to collaborate better.

Education

Enhance the learning experience by delivering high quality audio, video and screen share in your e-learning applications. Enable educators with the power of video to better explain complex concepts. Reach more learners remotely without compromising on the quality of education.

Retail

Add real-time audio and video calling to the kiosks in your retail stores. Connect shoppers with centralized sales agents for in-store assistance and expert advice on store merchandise.

Benefits

Build faster

Integrate pre-built communication building blocks into your applications to accelerate development. Use the AWS SDK in your server application to create media sessions and manage attendees. Use the Amazon Chime JavaScript Client SDK in your client applications to start and join media sessions, manage local audio/video devices, perform in-meeting actions and bind media streams to HTML elements.

Simplify operations

Benefit from AWS expertise in running real-time communications infrastructure securely at global scale. Deliver high-quality, reliable end user experiences without the need to manage infrastructure, networking, and communications components – just focus on your application and your users. Pay a single rate per minute per user, regardless of audio calling, video calling, or screen sharing features delivered.

Extend your applications

Integrate with other AWS services to extend application functionality. Enable phone users to dial into media sessions by integrating with Amazon Chime Voice Connector. Then stream audio with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams for transcription using Amazon Transcribe or sentiment analysis using Amazon Comprehend. Capture meeting events in real-time with Amazon EventBridge, Amazon Simple Queue Service or Amazon Simple Notification Service and trigger event-based workflows.

“Mitel is a partner in the cloud transformation strategies of many of our enterprise customers. In this capacity, we are trusted with critical communication workloads. When we built the CloudLink platform to power our next generation of collaboration applications, we knew that the AWS cloud had the global reach and security and operational excellence track records that these customers require. While integrating the Amazon Chime SDK into CloudLink, we immediately saw how AWS building blocks like the Amazon Chime SDK simplify architectures and can help us innovate more quickly for our customers. Working directly with AWS as they developed the Amazon Chime SDK, we went from a blank sheet design to field trials of a new collaboration service in under nine months.”

Richard Tworek, Vice President of Mitel Labs
