Online Desktop Presenter
Online Desktop Presenter allows the broadcasting of your computer's desktop to the Internet, providing a handy tool dedicated to online presentations and conferences. Its main advantage is that it does not require the installation of additional components on the remote computers, which makes it very easy to handle and configure.
Allow others to view your desktop
The principle that Online Desktop Presenter relies on is quite simple: the broadcast is performed via FTP to a web server (your own or free), so remote computer users only have to access the corresponding address to watch the presentation.
The broadcasting speed highly depends on the Internet access speed of the local and the remote computer. Since the transfer of each desktop image requires some time, displaying your desktop on the remote screen is usually delayed for a few seconds.
Transmit desktop images via FTP
You start by configuring the FTP and the presentation settings before initiating the presentation. The server name must be specified, alongside the web root directory and the name of the folder where the presentation images will be uploaded. As expected, one must also provide the authentication details.
Online Desktop Presenter can show either a selected screen area or the entire desktop. You can configure it to display the remote mouse pointer. There are various other settings that can be customized, such as the time interval between uploaded images, the browser refresh rate or the retry interval in case of connection failures.
For security reasons, Online Desktop Presenter can password-protect files in the presentation directory on an Apache web server.
An easy to configure desktop sharing utility
Online Desktop Presenter enables other users to view your desktop without installing a client application. It provides you with full control over the image transmission and comes with support for multiple monitor computers, which makes it a great tool for online presentations.
