Our recent ScreenScape 4.0 release will by followed by a new release of Smart Player for Windows.

This release will feature a revamped version of Setup for Windows based media players. The release will also include new networking options (e.g. proxy networks, WiFi Enterprise networks), built-in remote desktop support, and a range of bug fixes.

 

New Setup Wizard

Setup has been redesigned as a 3-step wizard. Users are guided through a standardised 3 step process every time Setup is launched. The steps are:

  1. Connect a keyboard
  2. Connect to the Internet
  3. Login to ScreenScape account

Embedded ‘remote desktop’ Support

It’s often the case that the software problem that’s driving you crazy has a simple solution… if only the right person could look over your shoulder and point it out.

That’s why ‘remote desktop‘ software is so powerful. It provides a fast track for new users to get expert help. The trick is to make remote desktops accessible to users who are in trouble exactly when they’re in trouble.

The new setup wizard will have embedded remote desktop support. Embedded access to remote desktop activation will help expedite solutions when users call our Customer Help line. During Setup, users will be able to click on a Support icon and directly enter a code provided by our Support team, at which point their screen will be immediately shared for assistance by a ScreenScape expert.
