Enable WebRTC simulcast to improve video performance for applications built with the Amazon Chime SDK

Starting today, you can use the Amazon Chime SDK for JavaScript to develop applications that automatically adapt to changing conditions to optimize the video experience for each meeting attendee. From the JavaScript SDK, you can now enable the simulcast feature, supported by the underlying WebRTC library. Once enabled, each client joining an Amazon Chime SDK meeting will automatically display the highest quality video available for its unique situation by considering network conditions and the total number and types of video streams being shared in the meeting.
