How to set up Reemo Studio to connect teams to their workstation, while working from anywhere

The goal of this article is to show you how to configure your  to allow your teams to work together and offer them Ultra HD access with full control over their remote workstation (physical or virtual) wherever they are… Via a Chrome browser!

Long story short

is above all a high performance low latency desktop streaming protocol, widely used in the Creative Industries sectors (Animation, architecture, engineering and video games studios).

It derives its legitimacy from the ability it offers employees to connect in 3 clicks from a Chrome browser to their workstation so that they can find their usual working environments identically in High Definition (Windows 10, Linux, MacOS), their applications and current files projects while taking advantage of the GPU power of the remote machine located many miles away.

This protocol provides essential functionalities for workloads that require a display that combines speed, image quality, and a need to use and operate peripherals from the local machine on the remote machine. (Microphone, webcam, drawing tablet + pen support, multiple screens ..)

Reemo Studio : What is it about ?

The use of the Reemo protocol has opened up a whole range of possibilities and endowed companies with an incredible brick of agility. Several uses were created naturally or forced by events related to the COVID-19 crisis. And to answer it, we imagined an intuitive interface to transparently connect teams to their workstation.

With Reemo Studio, companies mainly involved in Creative Industries have been able to transform their work organization: We can mention 3 major needs:

  • The implementation of teleworking via Reemo Studio: Internal or external collaborators thus work at their own pace by processing the company’s data on its environment without anything leaving the information system. Using Reemo for remote access give capacities to Creative team to work with large graphic-intensive files and use the procesing power wherever they are no matter what local hardware they have with them. Which is also a very good point when it comes to Security.
  • Ease recruitment by using the interface features: Send access automatically by email to users, manage their rights and have control over the entire computer park are some of the features used by companies to remove the constraint geographically by looking for talents wherever they are. Benefit from a larger talent pool is a real advantage when you are in a business sector with high stress in terms of HR. Even located remotely, the employee has access to a company workstation, that it is displayed in a browser thanks to the Reemo low latency protocol.
  • Increase the level of security: With Reemo Studio, you no longer need to consider leaving company machines or even buying laptops that need to be configured and which naturally increases the risk of data theft following file transfers necessary to work from the company’s information system to mobile terminals

You will now learn step by step how to activate and configure the Reemo Studio solution.
