With SkyRemote you can easily share your desktop or control a remote desktop of any Skype user who has also installed SkyRemote.

SkyRemote uses such Skype features as certification protocol, communication layer, strong encryption, users and connections management. This means that it is possible to share your own desktop and control a remote one with minimal effort, great flexibility and secure connection provided by Skype.

SkyRemote comes with a custom Display Mirror VGA Compatible driver. This mirror display driver will boost both local and remote desktop performance significantly and won't replace your old display driver - it is designed to work in conjunction with any other video driver.

SkyRemote Overview

SkyRemote is not a classical "sparc" Skype Extra, it has its own installation and management components. It does not even appear in the Skype Extras Manager. SkyRemote uses Public API methods to establish connection with the Skype client and communicate with it. It uses access Skype contact information and application-to-application commands. This is why Skype will ask you to allow access to Skype Resources for SkyRemote.

SkyRemote utilizes several lossless graphics compression formats: PNG, used with low color quality such as 1bit or 4bit; BMP, with color quality more than 4bit; files compressed according to ZIP algorithm. It grants the best picture quality alongside with fast connection. The user can also select a lossy JPEG compression format to adapt screens quality to connection speed. With JPEG compression the user can choose an auto compression adjustment option. In this case JPEG compression level and image quality will depend on connection speed and automatic settings.

This product uses the Skype API but is not endorsed, certified or otherwise approved in any way by Skype.
