New version allows Mac users to establish connections to TeamViewer 7 for Windows as well as hosting online meetings with video and Voice over IP.
Goeppingen, Germany, March 2012 – TeamViewer®, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meetings software, today announced the arrival of TeamViewer version 7 for Mac. The arrival of TeamViewer 7 for Mac allows cross-platform online sessions between Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android.
Having released TeamViewer 7 with the brand new TeamViewer Online Meeting functionality for Windows and Linux earlier this year, the software is now also available for Mac OSX making it possible for Mac users to join and host online meetings as well as carry out remote support sessions.
The TeamViewer Version 7 for Mac OS X offers the following new features:
TeamViewer Online Meeting:
– Start and join instant meetings for up to 25 people
– Schedule meetings and send invitations to all participants
– Users can act as Presenter, Organizer and Participant; roles can be passed over within an online meeting
Video and Voice over IP (VoIP):
– It is now possible to share and view video both during an online meeting and a remote control session, making distance collaboration more personable.
– Integrated video and VoIP enables meeting hosts and remote supporters to connect with their clients or colleagues face-to-face, helping to establish a relationship of trust between the different parties collaborating remotely.
TeamViewer Version 7 for Mac further expands the high levels of desktop sharing functionality experienced in previous versions. TeamViewer can start automatically with system boot and run in the background. With TeamViewer installed, users can establish an immediate connection by entering the ID number and password of the unattended computer; the software allows not only incoming connections, but also outgoing connections to other systems.
“TeamViewer7 for Mac ensures that the ever-growing community of Mac users around the globe can get the most out of cross-platform online collaboration”, said Holger Felgner, General Manager at TeamViewer GmbH. “Mac users are now able to enjoy TeamViewer online meeting functionality alongside Linux and Windows users. Even for small companies, business is becoming increasingly international. TeamViewer makes collaboration with colleagues and clients, both domestically and internationally, simple, natural, and thanks to the addition of video and VoIP to TeamViewer 7, now personable.”
As with all TeamViewer solutions, all communication between the viewer and the viewed computers is encrypted with AES-256 bit encoding, the highest possible security standard.
