News Article

8th May 2017 Stockholm, Sweden – Sinch part of CLX Communications AB (publ) – CLX announces the successful launch of its new cutting edge Video SDK product adding leading, integrated real-time video calling to its portfolio of market leading voice products.

The new Video SDK product from Sinch will supply developers with the necessary tools and scalable infrastructure allowing them to meet a rapidly growing demand for cross-platform integration that make in-app video calls possible from any online or mobile application.

“Adding video calling to the mix of voice tools represents the next big opportunity for enterprises to engage with their customers. Until now the complex process has often been beyond reach for app developers.” commented Andreas Bernström, founder and CEO at Sinch. “The launch of our Video SDK changes everything as it provides developers around the world with ease-of-use and time efficient tools to integrate high quality video calling into their apps. Adding this feature to any voice application will enhance and improve the communications experience the consumer has with the brand.”

Video calling is touted to be a major area of growth for enterprises as face-to-face interaction adds a dimension that is immediately engaging. Sinch’s Video SDK product functionality deepens user engagement because participants do not have to drop out of their app or website session to participate in a video call on another platform such as WhatsApp, Skype or Messenger.

Typical use cases include in-app interactions in the healthcare, dating, customer support and education sectors, as well as aiding enterprise collaboration across remote teams and locations. The Video SDK includes features such as proxy fallback, pause and resume, and screenshot capture.

What’s more, the SDK sits on top of the WebRTC architecture, which uses adaptive resolution and video codecs. This guarantees quality service standards such as uptime and HD image resolution. Sinch’s new solution is available on iOS, Android and JavaScript SDKs, giving developers the tools to quickly and easily add peer-to-peer video calling to their apps and works over either a WiFi or a mobile data connection.
