In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, reliable remote access has become an indispensable tool for media and creative professionals across the globe.

No longer confined by the traditional boundaries of office space, remote access has enabled creative pros to work from anywhere. Whether it's for real-time editing, high-resolution rendering, or other creative tasks, the demand for high-performance remote access solutions has never been greater.

Enter Splashtop Business Access Performance, a revolutionary solution tailored to cater to the unique requirements of the media and creative industry. With a feature-rich platform offering high-performance remote access and a host of other features, Splashtop has rapidly emerged as the go-to choice for creative professionals everywhere.

This blog post delves into the myriad of reasons that have positioned Splashtop as the preferred remote access solution for media and creative professionals.

Splashtop’s High-Performance and Easy Access

Not all remote access solutions are created equal. The intricate nature of creative work, be it editing high-resolution videos, manipulating detailed graphics, or crafting immersive audio experiences, requires a solution that does more than connect you to a remote computer—it needs to mirror the experience of sitting directly in front of that machine.

That's precisely what Splashtop offers—easy access from any device, whether it's a laptop, tablet, or even your smartphone. This broad device support, encompassing Windows, Mac, Linux computers, or virtual machines, ensures seamless connectivity irrespective of the device at your disposal.

But what truly sets Splashtop apart is its unrivaled high-performance remote access. Enabling 4K streaming up to 60 frames per second (FPS) provides an immersive experience that effectively blurs the line between local and remote access. Furthermore, for users of iMac Pro Retina, it gives an astonishing 5K streaming capability.

This high-performance feature is complemented by Splashtop's 4:4:4 color mode, delivering the best color accuracy and image clarity possible. This ensures that what you see on your home workstation perfectly mirrors the display on your remote device. For creative professionals, this could be the difference between acceptable and exceptional in their final product.

Meanwhile, the high-fidelity audio feature, which includes high audio bitrates (256k/384k), guarantees the best possible audio quality. Whether you're mixing music, editing a podcast, or reviewing dialogue for a film, this feature ensures your audio output remains clear, crisp, and perfectly synced with your visuals.

At its core, Splashtop offers connectivity and a seamless extension of your workstation, tailored specifically to meet the demands of media and creative professionals. It's remote access reimagined.

Additional Features for Creative Professionals

Splashtop's offerings extend beyond just high-performance connectivity; they are specifically designed with the needs of creative professionals in mind. Splashtop Business Access Performance is studded with unique features that elevate the remote work experience and make life easier for creative industry professionals.

One such feature is USB device redirection, a truly innovative solution that allows you to redirect a USB device from your local computer to the remote one. This means that whether you're using a smart card, security key, gaming controller, printer, or HID device, you can operate it as though it's directly plugged into your remote workstation. This feature is incredibly valuable for creatives who often need to work with specialized hardware.

For those who rely heavily on graphic tablets and styluses, Splashtop shines with its remote stylus and drawing tablet support. It lets you use your stylus on your local device to control your remote computer in real-time. This feature is a game-changer for graphic designers, artists, and animators who can continue creating their designs with the same precision and ease as they would on their local computers.

Another noteworthy feature is the microphone passthrough. This allows you to use your local microphone as the input to your remote computer, opening up a world of possibilities for professionals working in audio production, podcasting, or any field that involves sound recording and manipulation.

Moreover, everything available in Splashtop Business Access Pro comes included in Splashtop Business Access Performance. These features include multi-to-multi monitor support, file transfer, chat, secure user & device management, remote reboot & wake-on-LAN, and much more.

Splashtop does not simply provide a way to access your workstation remotely; it replicates your entire workspace environment, mirroring the flexibility and ease of an in-person experience. This focus on tailored solutions for creatives is why so many professionals prefer Splashtop for their remote access needs.

Splashtop's Industry-Specific Applications for Creative Pros

Operating a stylus and drawing tablet in real-time from a remote location is an absolute game-changer for these professionals, enabling precision and ease in their creations.

Video/Audio Editing and Production

Video and audio editors benefit greatly from high-fidelity audio settings and 4K streaming at 60fps. Whether it's mixing music, editing dialogue, cutting video footage, or post-production, these features ensure an accurate and immersive remote editing experience. The microphone passthrough also comes in handy for voiceovers or other audio inputs.


For broadcasting professionals, Splashtop offers the unique advantage of accessing and managing broadcast software remotely. The high-performance remote access ensures seamless operation, while the ultra-high audio fidelity maintains the audio quality needed for broadcast standards.
