February 16, 2017 --
Philadelphia, PA - February 16th, 2017 - Amazon announced their latest product, Chime will be available for immediate use. Chime is a full-featured video conferencing and chat application ready for immediate made to take on Cisco and Microsoft in a market Gartner estimates to be $12 Billion last year and expected to climb to $22 billion by 2020. HuddleCamHD has released a first look review video available below to provide video conferencing users with a detailed review of this exciting new software release.
"Amazon Chime has a huge value-add for network administrators already familiar with AWS (Amazon Web Services), Amazon’s widely successful cloud computer division" says Paul Richards, HuddleCamHD's Chief Streaming Officer. The video conferencing service will benefit from what amazon says is “a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.” (Amazon AWS Announcement). In true Amazon style, Chime is available for a free 30 day trial with no credit card required. The pricing model looks surprisingly like Zoom Video Communications freemium model which has been extremely successful thus far.

Most web-based video conferencing services are currently powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the exception of perhaps Skype for Business and Cisco Spark. By offering their own video communications platform Amazon is cutting out the middle man and making it clear by their pricing model (below) that they want to be the low-cost provider. The above map shows the world wide coverage of Amazon's web servers which Amazon says include "42 Availability Zones within 16 geographic Regions around the world, with five more Availability Zones and two more Regions coming online throughout the next year."
This Friday HuddleCamHD will report live on YouTube covering Zoom Video Communications latest features adding live streaming, Slack messaging adding video conferencing and of course Amazon Chime.
