LogMeIn Pro for Macs updated, adds HD streaming

Can view HD media remotely on iOS devices

LogMeIn has updated its flagship Mac version, LogMeIn Pro, to add the ability to stream HD video, audio and multimedia apps to other computers or iOS devices either via a browser or the native iOS LogMeIn application. The LogMeIn program allows users to access Macs running LogMeInPro remotely, and includes printing capabilities, running Mac applications and accessing remote media content on mobile devices.

The LogMeIn Pro service, which is available by subscription starting at $40 per year (for controlling one computer), works like an enhanced VPN, allowing Mac access to authorized users from iOS and Android smartphones, tablets and internet-connected computers. It includes remote-to-local printing (where users can send a file from their remote Mac to a local printer), remote desktop, file sharing and file transfer.

A free version of the service allows users to remotely log in and control an unlimited number of Macs or Windows PC, but does not include the HD video and audio streaming, file transfer or management, cloud storage or remote-to-local printing.

The update is free to all current users. Users can upgrade from the free version by selecting the Pro option as an in-app upgrade from the iOS app.
