July 19, 2011 – San Jose, CA – Splashtop® Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today announced the release of its Windows client for Splashtop Remote Desktop that currently enables millions of mobile devices, from tablets to smartphones, to remotely access PCs and Macs with full audio and high-definition (HD) video. Now with Splashtop Remote Desktop for Windows, users can also enjoy PC-to-PC and PC-to-Mac remote access from a private network or across the Internet, free of charge.
“Splashtop is delivering on our vision of bridging billions of devices together, whether they are running iOS, Android, webOS or Windows,” said Mark Lee, CEO and co-founder of Splashtop. “With our new Windows client, we now can connect more than a billion Windows PCs, as well as billions of tablets and smartphones, with PCs and Macs.”
Splashtop Remote Desktop eliminates the need to transfer, convert or sync files and multimedia among devices. Important work files and office applications, such as Outlook, PowerPoint, Keynote, Excel and Word, are easily accessed with this new app. Content for personal entertainment, including movies, music, photos and even 3D games, can also be viewed remotely. Simply go anywhere with just your mobile device, smartphone, tablet, notebook or ultrabook, and still have full access to your PC or Mac with a Splashtop Streamer installed.
Splashtop’s patent-pending technology enables its desktop applications to deliver high quality audio and video by using a remote computer’s graphics processing unit. Unlike other remote desktop products, Splashtop allows users to:
- Enjoy HD movies and videos (up to 30 frames per second), streaming from a PC or Mac
- Play interactive 3D games with low latency such as World of Warcraft, StarCraft, or EA Sports
- Setup with ease through its simple, intuitive interface
Splashtop Remote Desktop is comprised of two components:
- A Splashtop Remote Desktop application running on the client device, supporting iOS, Android, webOS, and now Windows
