TeamViewer Remote

What is screen sharing?

Screen sharing software enables you to share your screen — or a segment of it — with another device or multiple devices.

With screen sharing software, the information depicted on a device screen is broken down into encoded packets, compressed to minimize bandwidth requirements, and sent across the internet to another device. The recipient's device then rebuilds the image received from the other screen. It’s fast, and efficient, and thanks to TeamViewer Remote’s high image quality and connection stability, it delivers an exceptional user experience.

TeamViewer Remote

TeamViewer Remote puts fast, secure, easy-to-use screen sharing capabilities at your fingertips. For virtual teams and remote workers, TeamViewer Remote screen sharing enables more dynamic, hands-on access. It also facilitates real-time problem solving, making it an incredibly valuable tool for technical remote support, training, and customer service.

TeamViewer Remote allows a screen share user to not only view the screen contents of another device but also watch as the other party interacts with it in real-time, navigating the interface and making changes. This helps make TeamViewer Remote an essential part of your toolkit for remote work, support, monitoring, and instruction.
