Acrobits leverages Amazon Chime SDK to enhance its communication apps with embedded collaboration

News Article

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC - November 29, 2022 - Acrobits, a Sinch company, has chosen the Amazon Chime SDK as the foundation of LinkUp to further support its catalog of powerful white label unified communication solutions for iOS, Android, MacOS, and Windows. LinkUp is a feature-rich white-label video conferencing solution allowing businesses to host one-click meetings - complete with screen sharing, call recording, PSTN call-in, and more. Fully brandable and customizable, it's also cloud-based and lightweight, requiring no installation.

"The main idea behind LinkUp is to provide a reliable and scalable experience and a straightforward, intuitive user interface users can easily understand - and that's what we did," says Rafael Torreblanca, managing director of Acrobits. "We can now deliver a powerful collaboration stack to our communication as a service (xCaaS) customers, plus standalone, fully brandable video conferencing solutions for small to medium businesses."

The Amazon Chime SDK enables application-embedded audio calling, video calling, and screen sharing. Leveraging machine learning to reduce noise, eliminate echo, and transcribe real-time audio, it provides developers with unmatched quality. It also supports several major communication channels, including public switched telephone network (PSTN) audio and SIP trunking.

Leveraging the Amazon Chime SDK modules, or building blocks, developers can quickly wrap communications functionality into their applications, freeing development resources to focus on competitive differentiators. The Amazon Chime SDK also greatly simplifies operations, relying on the AWS cloud to offer seamless automatic scaling and reliable backend infrastructure. This is further augmented by the SDK's serverless architecture, designed for high availability use cases.\

"AWS has a well-deserved reputation as a leading provider of cloud infrastructure and development resources," says Tomas Vyskocil, chief technology officer of Acrobits. "When we learned about Amazon Chime SDK during the early stages of LinkUp's development, we immediately decided to build a prototype on top of the AWS technology. The performance and features of the prototype ruled out all other candidates, convincing us to go forward with Amazon Chime SDK."

As a leading cloud service provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS) looks for new areas to innovate on behalf of customers. AWS Communication Developer Services (CDS) is a suite of communication API offerings across video, voice, messaging, chat, and email. Amazon Chime SDK develops new video, voice, and chat features that can be easily implemented in any application or website to reduce development time in specialized areas, like WebRTC video or machine learning.

"The Amazon Chime SDK team is thrilled to partner with a leading provider like Sinch to build this solution," said Amazon Chime SDK General Manager, Sid Rao. "Our product is only as powerful as the solutions our customers build, and it's been exciting to see the evolution to video conferencing that Sinch offers."
