Prysm Activates Co-browsing, Wireless Screen Sharing

E-mail Print PDF

Prysm announces its Summer '17 software release-- featuring co-browsing functionality, wireless screen sharing via Google Cast and a refreshed annotation experience.

Cobrowsing PrysmCo-browsing (aka collaborative browsing) enables multiple users in disparate locations to launch and interact with multiple browser sessions simultaneously. The group participation function allows the owner of the browsing session to pass control of the session to other participants, including controls of an authenticated application, so long the owner remains logged into the Prysm project.

For enhanced security, when a presenter leaves a workplace or toggles off group participation the content the co-browser is pointed to is no longer available to workspace participants.

Meanwhile wireless screen sharing gets an addition with Google Cast (the system previously only supported Apple AirPlay). Users can enable their Google Chrome browser to share a single Chrome browser tab or the entire desktop. Users can also share up to four wireless devices simultaneously, within the same workspace, or switch between four wireless devices in Prysm Go, in addition to wired sources.
