Definitions for "Application sharing"
Videoconferencing applications that enables conference participants to run the same applications at the same time.
Application sharing is a feature that allows two people to work together when one of the individuals doesn't have the same application, or same version of the application. In application sharing, one user launches the application and it runs simultaneously. Both users can input information and otherwise control the application using the keyboard and mouse. Although it appears that the application is running on both P'Cs, it actually is running on only one, yet each user operates as though the application were running on both PC's. Files associated with the application can be easily transferred, so the results of the collaboration are available to both users immediately. The person who launched the application can lock out the other person from making changes, so the locked-out person sees the application running but cannot control it.
In video conferencing, those holding the conference can run the same application simultaneously. The host of the meeting starts the application, then allows others to collaborate in real time.
