We here at CQU use a number of different methods for "Sharing" a
* Using VNC, works well, but due to firewalls external
participants are unable to view the presentation. (You might want to
try VenueVNC) Poor frame rates, ie cannot stream mpegs, etc.
* Using Shared Presentation, works well, but again you are relying
on the Venue Server to be up, etc.
* Using Shared Desktop (see agcentral.org), as this share
applications appears to work well, but again the firewall issues pops up
again. Poor frame rates, ie cannot stream mpegs, etc.
* Using the TV output of the computer, I stream the desktop as a
"vic" stream. Works well, but quality is poor due to codec being used.
No need to worry about firewalls and has good frame rates and can stream
multimedia files well.
I regularly the above methods myself, and each have their own niche
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Subject: [AG-TECH] Questions about remote presentation technology
Hello AG Tech,
What technology do you prefer to display a presentation over the Access
For instance, do you use VNC external to the venue client by installing
VNC server for others to view from a VNC client or do you choose to
presentation to the venue client?
What other methods do you use to display a presentation over the Access
As I am experiencing VNC client drop off from the external VNC server we
use, I would like to consider other options. The VNC server has its
firewall turned off during presentations.
