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.

Remote Desktop Protocol is the same multichannel protocol many people already use to access their work computer from their home computer. Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) uses RDP to transmit data.
