No software downloading means less annoyance for your users and thus more participants to your virtual events. Let’s have a quick glance to TurboMeeting, MegaMeeting, GoToMeeting and WebEx, four great tools that allow you to share your screen without any software downloading.

Screen-sharing is one of the most useful and utilized functionalities during webinars, video conferences or remote support operations.  Unfortunately, the products for virtual conferencing that do not require any software download are few. Yet, it is proved that users’ preferences go to no downloading solutions, like the browser-based ones. If you adopt this technology, you have then better chances to increase the number of participants to your webinars and virtual meetings.

TurboMeeting is a suite of video conferencing servers manufactured and distributed by the company R-HUB (http://www.rhubcom.com). Clients can access a webinar hosted on a TurboMeeting server simply by clicking on the special link in the invitation email through their browsers. No software is downloaded. This solution offers a huge set of functionalities to make your webinars and video conferences highly interactive and engaging, among which there is naturally screen sharing. You can easily show slides, documents, photos, videos or other relevant material to back up your arguments that way.

MegaMeeting (http://www.meagmeeting.com) is specialized in browser-based solutions for webinars, video-conferences and one-to-one meetings. Screen-sharing is just one of the multiple functionalities that this solution offers its users and, again, there is no necessity to download anything. What makes the difference with TurboMeeting is power. R-HUB`s servers can host webinars up to 3000 participants for room, MegaMeeting up to 250 only. MegaMeeting is also more expensive, as it costs per year more or less the same as the purchase of a R-HUB`s server that though lasts much longer than one year.

GoToMeeting (http://www.gotomeeting.com) is one of the most popular platforms for web conferencing. Simple and cost-effective, it allows you to host any kind of virtual events, from your webinars to the classic online meeting. All the usual functionalities (among which screen sharing) are present. To enter a webinar, participants have simply to digit the ID of the event and their email on the form on the special web page. Among the cons, there are the severe limitations on the number of participants, which cannot go over 100 attendees. The price is comparable with R-HUB`s TurboMeeting.

WebEx (http://www.webex.com) is the pioneer of web conferencing, as it was founded in the far 1995. The max number of participants per meeting is 200, while the price per year is 590 US$ (to make a comparison, a TurboMeeting server that can host up to 1000 participants cost 995 US$). The recent integration with Cisco Spark assures users a clean and crisp audio. Screen sharing is present among many other useful functionalities.
