ezTalks Enables Windows Control Options When Sharing a Whiteboard or Desktop

181 | Jan 17, 2020

ezTalks Technology Company Limited, the leading video conferencing & business collaboration provider, recently enables Windows control options when sharing a whiteboard or desktop. With a continuous effort to build a premium collaborative platform, ezTalks successfully marked the milestone for seamless team collaboration with such a function.

According to preliminary results from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker, the worldwide market for traditional PCs, inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations, finished an impressive 2019 with fourth-quarter growth of 4.8% year over year. Global shipments grew 2.7% year over year in 2019, with a full year of PC growth. It shows that this past year was a wild one in the PC world, just as what has been said by Ryan Reith, program vice president with IDC's Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers. The market will still have its challenges ahead, but this year was a clear sign that PC demand is still there despite the continued insurgence of emerging form factors and the demand for mobile computing. Thus, ezTalks keeps in step with the tide of the times and strives to exploit more innovative functions to enhance the desktop users' satisfaction.

ezTalks’ desktop or whiteboard sharing is the practice of sharing the contents on the computer screen or online whiteboard with another device or multiple devices simultaneously. It can be available in various events including online meetings, Internet training, web conferences, and online presentations. ezTalks also aims to increase audience engagement, improve productivity and maximize the resources when sharing the desktop or whiteboard by taking systematic control.

Windows control options, just as the name suggests, give donline meeting users the ability to request or grant control over individual shared documents or entire computers. This can include all the elements on a screen or simply one window, which allows for complete control over the visibility of your desktop and guarantees privacy. While its remote desktop controlling options enable the one to navigate one computer from another and do the sharing process, considered very effective and less time-consuming especially when running a meeting in different locations. Users will even have full control over the keyboard and the mouse. It can be a great help for those who share desktops or whiteboard in order from two aspects.

The remote control options allow one to take control of another participant's screen in a meeting while one can either request remote control of another participant's screen or the participant who is controlling can give control to others. The one who starts sharing the whiteboard or desktop with other meeting participants can maintain control of his whiteboard or desktop, or give other meeting participants control of the whiteboard or desktop freely and then regain control of the whiteboard or desktop at any time.

Requesting Remote Control

When the one is sharing the screen or whiteboard, other participants can request to remotely control it by clicking the “remote control” icon. If the end-user selects Control, the one/ones appointed can work on the remote desktop as if it were a local system. The end-user always retains overriding control of the computer and can exit the support session at any time. Then the user will see the pop-up windows saying that “User ** apply for remote control right, do you accept?” Once the one who is sharing allows it, the participant can control the screen with his mouse and keyboard.

Giving Remote Control

While screen sharing or whiteboard sharing, the one who is controlling can give remote control to another participant who is in the meeting. Click remote control options and select the participant whom want to give control to. Then, this participant can click anywhere on the screen to start control. In the whole process, the host can choose to stop sharing to regain control and not allow the others to start remote control again, contributing to a better meeting order.

ezTalks is also keen to enhance the meeting or webinar hosting experience itself, and it's doing so with the addition of several new capabilities that let users turn each communication into a deeply interactive experience. “Our latest software represents the continued innovation we're driving that helps our customers stay ahead of the curve and create new, ground-breaking experiences for interactive communication for decades to come. More importantly, no matter how you interact with others, you must bring the meeting to order. That’s why we enable Windows control options when sharing whiteboard or desktop here.” spoke Jack Zhang, the global director of ezTalks.
