Sound for Remote Desktop is a reliable software solution that enables two-way sound connection between a local workstation and a remote desktop session.
In standard situations, two-way sound stream in a remote desktop environment is problematic or even impossible for such applications as Lync, Skype, NetMeeting, Dragon Naturally Speaking etc. DirectSound applications do not natively support audio input/output functionality in remote desktop environment, thus there is no possibility to use a microphone in RDP session.
Sound for Remote Desktop allows to transfer audio stream with low latency and high sampling rate to remote Windows session, with no cut-offs or choppy sound.
How it works
Sound for Remote Desktop is extremely easy to use. The solution consists of two parts: Workstation and Server. The Workstation part should be installed on the local workstation and the Server part goes to the remote server where you are logging in using RDP, Citrix or PCoIP.
As soon as both parts are installed, sound stream is transferred automatically every time you are logging in to your remote desktop. Audio software running on the remote side will be able to receive input audio as if the microphone, headset or other audio equipment were plugged directly into the remote machine. And the output audio will be played back from the remote session to your local headphones or speakers.
Audio stream isolation
In case of multi-user environment (Windows Server 2012, 2016, 2019, 2022), if there is more than one user logged in to the remote side, you can be sure that each sound device is isolated within its individual session so you don't need to worry that somebody else will hear your incoming or outgoing audio stream. You don't need to scan through the list of input/output devices of other users to find your microphone or headphones. Such isolation allows you to work with your audio stream exclusively.
Supports any sound input or output devices
All types of sound devices are supported. It does not matter if the headset or microphone is USB or 3.5 mm jack. It’s not needed to have some special type of sound input/output device or adapt an existing one. Any headset or a microphone will work fine.
Remote desktop protocols
Sound for Remote Desktop supports different remote desktop protocols including Microsoft RDP, Teradici PCoIP, Citrix ICA. It does not matter what environment is used (Remote Desktop Services, Hyper-V, Microsoft Azure, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, Amazon Workspaces and others). Any compatible Client software is used for accessing remote side.
All your data is secure
Sound for Remote Desktop transfers the data directly only between Workstation and Server program parts, that are installed on your computers. It doesn't connect to FabulaTech or any third-party servers. The only exception is optional checking for new versions, therefore it is fully functional even without Internet access.
Connection between Workstation and Server is established using virtual channels as a part of remote desktop protocols. So the security level of the solution is the same as you have already set for ordinary remote desktop connection.
Double hop session support
You can connect from your workstation to remote Server 1. And then initiate a connection to another Server 2 session from Server 1.The device will be accessible on Server 2 without any additional configurations.
