    AnyDesk is far faster than UltraVNC. Both in terms of encoding and framerates.

    Anydesk also captures sound and can send keys all keystrokes directly to the server.

    Both LogMeIn and UltraVNC offer remote desktop connection and control. Though their approaches to doing so are different, the end result is still, at its core, the same.
