Thinfinity® Workspace delivers on its promise of taking locally installed applications to the web with crisp and clear HD video streaming. In the past years, the importance of good audio quality has become as essential as video. Today’s applications demand optimum audio performance with virtually no delay, no lag, and no compromises.
With this premise in mind, Thinfinity® Workspace includes audio and microphone input redirection from your remote application to your local computer. This feature is a remarkable addition for audio-dependent applications such as VoIP and Softphone software. For managed devices, it provides a solid alternative for Teams and Zoom audio calls.
Setting up Bidirectional Audio Redirection in Thinfinity® Workspace is extremely simple. You just need to configure it at a profile level.
