Remote display protocols and software provide access to the desktops of remote computers over a network connection. View Client supports the Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and PCoIP from VMware.

PCoIP provides an optimized desktop experience for the delivery of the entire desktop environment, including applications, images, audio, and video content for a wide range of users on the LAN or across the WAN. PCoIP can compensate for an increase in latency or a reduction in bandwidth, to ensure that end users can remain productive regardless of network conditions.

Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) uses RDP to transmit data. RDP is a multichannel protocol that allows a user to connect to a computer remotely.

Multimedia redirection (MMR) delivers the multimedia stream directly to client computers by using a virtual channel.
