We are very pleased to announce our latest Dameware Remote Everywhere release. This release, which includes an updated Windows Agent, Windows Console & Viewer revision in addition to a variety of customer-driven improvements, also includes our latest feature: In-session video calling!
All the details…
In version 7.00.07 for Windows, after you launch a DRE session, you will now have a new option on the drop-down menu to “Start Video Call”.
Selecting this option immediately instantiates a video call request to your connected partner. That person can accept or reject your request.
Rejecting simply drops the inbound call, and in no way impacts the session itself. Accepting the call will immediately launch our video conferencing allowing a two-way exchange of voice and video stream. As with VoIP calls, your primary audio device will be enabled by default – now we’re adding in your primary camera device as well to enable video calling. This is particularly handy if the end user wants to show the technician something that will help troubleshooting on their end – a cabling configuration, port setup, etc.
Also in this release, we’re making a major enhancement to our Admin Area in the form of our new Take Control Widget:
This new Widget allows users to quickly see the support request queue, how licenses are being consumed at that moment, and offers simple ways for techs to both create and transfer sessions – and it’s all in one overlaid dialog box!
Note: Introduced with this new Widget is the ability to administratively disable your local license consumption. It’s as easy as switching the toggle to “Off”; you will terminate your use of license BUT you will be able to continue to perform other administrative functions, such as running reports, designing surveys, and so on:
