How SeeMyScreen Works

 

SeeMyScreen is a web conferencing application that allows you to show your PC's screen to other people across the Internet. The service is "view only" so there is no security risk as with other remote control style products.

 

SeeMyScreen uses standard Internet port 80 so there is no need to change your firewall or network settings. If you can browse the web, you can host and attend web conferences.

 

There are 2 primary roles with SeeMyScreen:

The attendee, and the presenter.

 

An attendee is any individual who will be viewing the presenter's screen. The attendee only needs a PC with Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, and an Internet connection to be able to attend a SeeMyScreen conference.

 

The presenter is the individual who will be sharing his or her screen with the attendee. The requirements to be a presenter are:

 

A windows PC with Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher.

The SeeMyScreen presenter software.

A connection to the Internet.

 

The presenter software captures the screen of the PC it is running on and uploads the image to the SeeMyScreen relay server. The attendee connects to the relay server and views the image of the presenter's screen.

With SeeMyScreen, you create a conference center for your business or organization. Within the conference center you can create conference rooms and then setup conferences in the conference room.

 

You can create groups and control access to conference rooms. This allows you to have public or private conferences where only select groups of individuals can attend or be a presenter.

 

There are 2 basic types of conferences.

 

Meetings:

Meetings are free for the attendee to participate.

 

Seminars:

Seminars are conferences where the attendee has to pay to participate.

 

After creating a conference, the presenter can send an invitation link to invite people to join the conference. Invitation links can also be sent to allow people to join the conference center or a particular group.

 

The system will attempt to send reminder e-mails to the attendee and the presenter 1 day and then again 2 hours before the conference is scheduled to begin. If the conference date is changed, or the conference is cancelled an e-mail will be automatically sent to all attendees and presenters.
