Screenhero is making collaboration even easier. Beta Release 13, available now, allows you to start a voice chat without sharing your screen, and lets you rapidly switch between sharing and hosting a screen.
In a previous blog post, we showed you how to turbo-charge a pairing station with Screenhero to get the benefit of two mouse cursors. But you don’t need a dedicated pairing station to reap the benefits of pairing with Screenhero.
Yeah, so we announced support for international keyboards before—and it worked, but not completely, as you were quick to point out! We’ve just posted an update to Beta Release 12 that includes vastly improved support for European keyboards on OS X. This update also handles cmd-q, cmd-w, cmd-h, and cmd-m in a much clearer way on all keyboards, transmitting these sequences to the host computer instead of (say) quitting Screenhero. If you aren’t already running 0.12.1.0, you can download it now, or use the in-app updater. Let us know what you think!.
Unfortunately, we’re still working on AltGr support for Windows users. We aim to have support for European keyboards in our Windows client in the next few weeks.
Operating systems assume that there is only one person accessing the desktop at a time, limiting us to only one mouse cursor per desktop. But what if you really want two cursors, for a local pairing session, for example? Screenhero to the rescue!
Screenhero is now even faster than ever before! Beta Release 12, available now, is a huge step forward in network performance, image quality, responsiveness, and overall reliability. Go ahead and download it now!, or read on for a list of enhancements
Remote collaboration should feel just like you’re in the same room, and our real-time video streaming is a big part of what makes that happen. Last month our own Faraz Khan and Don Goodman-Wilson gave a talk at Pivotal Labs discussing some of the obstacles we’ve faced with low latency streaming of HD+ resolution video, and how we overcame them.
Today, we’ve added five major features that improve productivity and collaboration on the Screenhero platform. These are among the top-most requested features by users on our feedback page. Below are the highlights of this release. To try it out, download the latest version, or check for updates from Screenhero if you’re already a user. Also, be sure to check out TechCrunch’s video demo and interview with our CEO!
The debate about working remotely usually focuses on the extremes: the individualists support remote working as they believe people are more productive alone (there is strong evidence to prove this point), while the collaborationists believe that working in groups and teams yields better ideas and innovation (there is strong evidence for this point as well). Ultimately, the challenge for any company with remote workers is to balance productivity and collaboration.
In 1968, Doug Engelbart presented the “Mother of all Demos”: ninety minutes of forward-looking, human-centered, way-before-their-time software and hardware demos. In this presentation, Engelbart unveiled a new user interface, the mouse—and with it a revolutionary new tool for collaboration.
Screenhero is a collaboration tool that turns any Mac or PC program into a shared environment where multiple users can simultaneously use their mice and keyboards to work together or complete projects.
