Up until last year, remote work was almost unheard of for professionals in film-making, radio, broadcasting, and many other industries. Today, as the pandemic accelerates the remote work trend, we hear stories of how entire organizations in media and entertainment are working productively from home as a result of next-generation remote access solutions like Splashtop. Remote workers are now able to access resource-intensive desktop applications on high-end work computers from anywhere using any device, just as they would in-person.
Meteorologists are among the many media and entertainment professionals that have newly found work flexibility with Splashtop. They can remotely log in to their weather system, run applications like Max Weather, prepare graphics, set up hits and sequences, and even broadcast from literally anywhere. For example, Bryan Huges, a meteorologist from WOWK converted his boat into a remote newsroom by using Splashtop! High-performance remote sessions and robust features make this possible.
Splashtop now also enables meteorologists to remotely transmit microphone audio input to the work computer from any device.
“The new remote microphone capability in Splashtop Enterprise enables the remote sharing of a microphone input to our Max Weather solutions from any device, thereby enabling our users to remotely generate voice over graphics via the Max One audio input feature. This option provides flexibility and greatly enhances the abilities for our users to work remotely as needed, yet remain with their viewership across multiple platforms,” said Joe Ziskovsky, Senior Sales Engineer at The Weather Company (An IBM Business).
