display protocols.jpgSelecting the right remote display protocol is an important part of every hosted desktop initiative. There are many options to choose from that span a wide range of visualization needs, from Microsoft RDP to PCoIP, and everything in between. Fortunately, with help from the Leostream Connection Broker, you can utilize a variety of display protocols and deliver the best end-user experience throughout your organization.

We’re dedicated to developing our software to best suit the needs of customers with complex workloads and visualization requirements. Many of the protocols that we integrate our software with are extremely specialized, and are used in the engineering, high-finance, and oil & gas industries where one misplaced pixel can cost the enterprise millions of dollars. Leostream supports everything listed below, and keep in mind that you can also leverage multiple protocols in a single environment; so do not feel like you must commit to a single display protocol.
