desktop sharing web conferences straight from their handset - putting
the users in the right place, first time every time. With desktop
sharing capabilities in the palm of their hand, iPhone users are
finding themselves in possession of a powerful software solution which
is enhancing visual communication, saving time, decreasing travel
costs, and obliterating impossible business meeting schedules.
With the release of its award-winning HTML viewer, BeamYourScreen
(www.BeamYourScreen.com) have empowered Apple iPhone users with a means
of screen sharing between their handset and desktop PCs, enabling them
to participate in web conferences. Open Safari, enter the
BeamYourScreen session ID and iPhone users are instantly viewing the

Part of being on the road every week, means you’re unlikely to
always be in the right place at the right time. The same goes for
company meetings with many being missed by business travelers unable to
attend due to either transport delays, infeasible meeting schedules,
rising oil prices – in fact, the list goes on.
However thanks to BeamYourScreen’s HTML viewer, iPhone users are
able to employ their handset to join a web conference. Not only can
they view the meeting organizer’s PC desktop in true color and in
real time, they now carry a means that directly gives them an eye into
the meeting room from any corner of the globe.

they’re in hotels, trains, or airport lounges, regardless of the

The benefits are clear: a stress-free, easy-to-use affordable way to
take part in web conferences. Any iPhone owner can enhance their audio
conferences by attending a desktop sharing session straight over the
Internet. From any PC, the meeting organizer starts a BeamYourScreen
session and can transmit anything from their desktop, including
websites, Microsoft Office documents, or PDF files. As there are no
downloads nor configurations required, the BeamYourScreen HTML viewer
fits the iPhone like a glove.
How do they do it? Users make a phone call and join the audio
conference. They then simply open Safari on their iPhone, go to
www.joinsession.info, and enter the Session ID. A quick connection
means they are instantly able to view the PC screen of the
BeamYourScreen session organizer in real-time while chatting through
the audio conference. When the iPhone user wishes to leave the web
conference they do so by simply closing the Safari window.
“During a meeting, the users can operate the iPhone as usual.
They can rotate the handset to view the screen in full-landscape mode,
as well as accessing the zoom function,” continues Mr. Boos.
“In fact BeamYourScreen’s capability with the iPhone is
really a smooth-running experience.”
Seeing truly is believing, and for those who are always on the go,
BeamYourScreen’s web conferencing technology has maximized the
iPhone even further and provided a friendly shoulder to lean on.
