Hi Folks, I regularly teach classes where there are say 4 to 12 people in a room that want to see what's on my computer's screen. I'd rather broadcast my screen to them instead of using a projector. I've had some success with UltraVNC but I can't help but think that you would be the right people to make such an application. The alternatives to this are tools like TeamViewer but they require a live Internet connection. Often these rooms have poor Internet connectivity but really high-speed local networks. Tools like UltraVNC seem to poll the screen for changes. It has to be better to hook into the changes directly.

It would also be workable to need to open an RDP session to my own machine, and to have a way to shadow that RDP session to the other machines. Ideally though, you'd produce a small server application that could run on my machine, capture my screen changes, and send them to clients that connect to my machine.

Have you considered a product like this?
