New online meetings for up to 25 participants and superior remote access features
Göppingen, 30 November, 2011 – TeamViewer, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online presentation software, today introduces the highly-anticipated TeamViewer 7. The new version incorporates an all-new online meeting solution as well as further advancing the remote access features already employed by over 100 million users worldwide.
New online meeting features
TeamViewer 7 allows the creation of an online meeting with just one click. Accessible via any web browser, participants can join a Flash-based meeting without having TeamViewer installed. With TeamViewer 7, meetings can be scheduled in advance and planned via Microsoft Outlook. The host can send an invitation containing all the practical joining information in one place, including the URL and optional conference line details.
Up to 25 users can enjoy its fully interactive capabilities, which include screen sharing, video conferencing, text chat, a whiteboard for presentations, and the new ‘File Box’ through which documents are shared. The presenter can also pause, stop and record sessions that may then be converted into an AVI file for future reference.
New TeamViewer MeetingApp for Android® and iOS
Launched alongside Version 7 is the free ‘TeamViewer Meeting’ App, available for Android devices, iPhone® and iPad®. This streamlined App provides a simple solution for those who need to attend presentations on-the-go. By simply entering the meeting ID, participants can instantly join, and view meetings from a handheld device or tablet, iOS users can even listen to the meeting. The Apps ensure that important presentations won’t be missed.
Meeting participants don’t even need a license to join a meeting. As always, non-commercial users experience full functionality for free!
New advances in remote access technology
TeamViewer 7 expands and improves upon an already strong remote access feature set. Developments include full drag-and-drop functionality from a session window to a local computer, or vice versa; full multi-monitor support enabling users to see two or more remote screens on two or more local screens, store preferences, which avoids adjusting settings every time a remote session begins; and screenshots. TeamViewer Manager, the tool used to keep track of current and past sessions, has also undergone huge performance improvements and is now up to 4 times faster than before.
“TeamViewer 7 combines remote access and online meetings into one useful business solution,” notes Holger Felgner, General Manager at TeamViewer. “Whether you’re a salesman demonstrating savings to a potential client or an office-based manager collaborating remotely with a global team, TeamViewer 7 perfectly meets your needs. In addition, TeamViewer 7 also brings new potential for communication to private users, for free.”
As with all TeamViewer solutions, every communication between the viewer and the viewed computer or computers is encrypted with AES 256-bit encoding, providing maximum security.
