LogMeIn Pro Adds HD Streaming To Any Device

LogMeIn, the company known for making it a breeze to remotely access your home computer, has just rolled out a new feature to their Pro level service. LogMeIn Pro now includes HD streaming to any PC or iOS device. Streaming works through a web browser or through LogMeIn’s free iOS app. The feature comes at a great time now that the new iPad is available – the Retina display and 4G LTE speeds are going to be amazing hardware accents to the fine software product that LogMeIn has put together. Here is what LogMeIn’s VP of Products, Matt Kaplan, had to say about the new HD Streaming feature:

“Anywhere, anytime access is an expectation for today’s mobile, multi-device user and justifiably so. With the new HD streaming capabilities, Mac owners can get the full benefits of their multimedia content, whether for work or for play, from virtually anywhere in the world. We see it as an amazing experience on any device, but combine it with the LogMeIn app and a new retina display iPad and you’ve got what we believe to be a remarkable solution for displaying, playing and working with today’s highest resolution media.”

The new streaming feature seems similar to other offerings by already popular iOS solutions including AirVideo or StreamToMe but LogMeIn has the unique benefits of other features such as Remote Screen Control, File Browsing, and Computer Management. The Pro Service starts at $39.99 a year if purchased as an in-app upgrade through the free iOS app and looks like it might be a killer service to try if you just picked up a shiny new iPad. I personally have always stuck with a combination of VNC, Dropbox, and AirVideo to serve these purposes but now that seems like quite a bit of hassle compared to the ease of setting up a LogMeIn Pro account.

LogMeIn is available for free from the App Store.
