TurboMeeting is a multi-function web collaboration system. The client-server architecture requires Internet connectivity for its operation. TurboMeeting has four distinct functions based on these meeting types:
- Interactive Meetings – This refers to conventional web conferencing including sales presentations, product demos, and interactive collaboration.
- Remote Support – This function simplifies the connection to another computer to control and support it and provides a remote reboot capability for unattended support.
- Seminars – This function ensures seminars that are easy, fast and reliable to join. You can join without any downloads.
- Remote Access to Computers – This function provides access anywhere, anytime to remote computers such as your office or home computers even if your computer has power cycled, and even if Internet has disconnected (and has reconnected later).
Depending on the product model you buy, some of the meeting types may not be available to you.
