Screen sharing is one of the core tenets of web conferencing, yet to the vast majority of users, knowing how to screen share with confidence remains a mystery. How many times have you been in a meeting and heard a presenter ask, “Can you see my screen?” Latency and fidelity are the two areas where presenters most often come across challenges when screen sharing. Latency, by definition, refers to the amount of time it takes for information to travel from your computer screen to the Share pod on each attendee’s computer. Sometimes when users share their screen other meeting attendees can experience a high degree of latency, or a situation where a noticeable time lag occurs between when the presenter performs an action on their desktop and when that action is broadcast to meeting attendees. Fidelity, on the other hand, is the accuracy with which an image is reproduced from the presenter’s screen.  Or in lemans terms, how good the image looks.  Can you read the text displayed on the other user’s screen? This article provides you with some best practices and strategies that will enable you to screen share with confidence by minimizing latency and maximizing fidelity.
