TeamViewer Review

TeamViewer is a web conferencing program that can be used for scheduled and ad hoc online meetings.

Since version 8, the moderator can plan web conferences and invite participants in advance using the integrated scheduling functionality in Outlook. In addition, all essential functions can be easily accessed in the locally installed web console by the moderator while running the web meeting.

Moreover, users can switch to video conferencing mode. Unfortunately, the picture quality is not HD. Beyond the missing HD quality we noticed performance issues with VoIP while conducting online presentations.

Bottom line: TeamViewer 9 is well-suited for planned and ad hoc web meetings.
