    Question TalkShow 4000 and Skype Screenshare

    Greetings! I have a remote presenter who wants to show their video through Skype AND show a web site and control it from their end. What's the best way to handle this?

    - Have them screen share from Skype?

    - I could use Chrome Remote Desktop and have them control a laptop here in the studio with their slides loaded up?

    Trying to figure out a way for this remote IP presenter to be seen AND show their own slides/content.

    Any suggestions are very much appreciated!

    Skype TX which Talkshow is based on does not support the Screen sharing function. Any of the popular screen sharing services would work, we often use Go To meeting in house.

    Zane,

    Just to clarify, are you suggesting that they use another service (e.g. GoTo Meeting) for both the video call and the screen share, or combine that service with Skype?
    If so, how would that work? Multiple laptops on the presenter end?

    I would use Talkshow to perform the Video call and use another service for the screen sharing.

    Zane,

    When you do this in house, are you running both on one computer?

    I am trying to picture the set up we would use.

    Control:
    Talkshow for video/audio (or laptop running Skype with HDMI or NDI out to Tricaster)
    Laptop receiving the screenshare via another application (HDMI out or NDI out to Tricaster)

    Remote presenter:
    Laptop running Skype
    Second laptop running another screenshare application?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    If I was doing this for a live event I would use two laptops on the remote callers side with a Talkshow and a laptop on the production side. I would have the production side invite the remote guest to control the local production laptop via something like Go To Meeting while running NDI scan converter to send it to the TriCaster. I would say that most modern i7 based laptops would be able to handle both on the remote callers side but it isn't worth the chance during a Live Event. Skype TX does provide you with system performance information from the remote guests machine so you will know if they are close to pegging their CPU for example.
