Sharing your screen with teammates, partners or even customers has been a huge productivity enhancer trick over the years. Being able to show your work, discuss about it on the fly without having to transfer any data is an amazing feature and surely avoid many frustrating moments.
However, screen sharing can be painful sometimes, when you have to explain to a non-technical person how to join you on your screen, ending up assisting him/her to install the screen sharing solution itself so he/she can assist you in turn on your work. Without physically seeing your teammate, things don’t get any better when you try to actually collaborate on your work, misunderstandings are more likely to occur: “put that image more to the left, no not like this, no, wait, too far…”.
That’s where USE Together comes into play, thought for super easy, completely collaborative screen sharing sessions. Joining someone on a screen has never been so headache-free, from a simple web browser with no software nor any plugin to install! Indeed, you will only be required to install USE Engine software if you want to share your screen, transforming your machine into a collaborative workplace where each user has its own mouse cursor and can simultaneously manipulate your apps and data in real time with you.
In fact, USE Together can be used for everything, being as simple as remotely editing your pitch slideshow with your partner, presenting your work in progress webdesign to your customer so he can show you clearly with its own mouse cursor what element needs to be orange, or to do some remote pair programming and code reviews. Our team members have even used USE Together to develop it on its latest stages, reducing drastically endless meetings to discuss about how a particular feature should be implemented and to be able to live-tweak it.
Furthermore, we wanted to make screen sharing as fast and smooth as possible in USE Together, with the implementation of what is commonly used in scientific remote visualization solutions: hardware encoding acceleration. We have brought NVIDIA GPU low latency encoding support (other technologies coming later) into USE Together, for an amazing remote desktop experience as if your teammates were here with you in front of your screen. No more 5 FPS screen sharing sessions, you can watch videos with all your team in real time with USE Together!
USE Together is currently in beta and available for free during this period, feel free to try it and don’t hesitate to send us your feedback on our subreddit or at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to be informed about our latest news and updates, please subscribe to our newsletter.
Happy screen sharing 🙂
