[prMac.com] Mannheim, Germany - BeamYourScreen has today announced the release of its official BeamYourScreen Mac version providing a cross-platform desktop sharing solution for online meetings with up to 200 participants. Thus not only can PC users benefit from an easy-to-use and fast desktop sharing solution, Mac users can now also harness the potential of professional desktop sharing.
Whether it be an online meeting, web presentation, webinar or remote support session, the BeamYourScreen Mac version enables Mac users to start a session within seconds and invite both PC and Mac users to view their screen over the Web in real-time. Furthermore Mac users are able to join any BeamYourScreen session that was started on a PC computer.
A great advantage of the BeamYourScreen design is that neither the firewall nor network settings need to be changed to allow a user to start or join a session. This makes it possible for Mac users to quickly and effortlessly start a session directly after downloading the software.
Upon starting a session the organizer receives a 9-digit session ID, which they pass on to their participants. Participants download a connection program, enter the session ID, and are then instantly able to view the screen of the session organizer. During the session, the presenter has numerous functions: switch presenter, remote keyboard and mouse control, file/clipboard transfer, pointer, pause session, close session, and audio conferencing system.
The security of all data transferred during a BeamYourScreen session is ensured via 256-bit AES encryption, unique user authentication and an optional session password. Recently, the BeamYourScreen security architecture received the TÜV SÜD attestation.
"With the BeamYourScreen Mac version, we have made another important step for our innovative desktop sharing solution. Not only is the popularity of the Apple Mac platform increasing amongst individuals, but there is a growing presence of Mac computers in workplaces, and consequently many companies will benefit from our software," says Erik Boos, Co-Founder of BeamYourScreen. "We are very pleased to provide cross-platform functionality with BeamYourScreen and we are looking forward to the upcoming features in the BeamYourScreen Mac version."
Given the current economic situation, BeamYourScreen provides an innovative solution to conduct meetings and presentations via the Internet and thereby reduce costs and increase productivity. Further information is available on the BeamYourScreen website.
