Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Remote Graphics Software is a client-server remote desktop software solution developed by Hewlett-Packard, to enable remote access to high-performance workstations from a thin-client machine. This access includes control of the graphics hardware on the server, enabling manipulation of large, complex 3D models. Remote USB and sound are also supported. RGS is essentially the same concept as existing remote desktop technologies such as Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol, NX technology, Oracle/Sun Microsystems' Appliance Link Protocol, Citrix's Independent Computing Architecture, or VNC's Virtual Network Computing in that all the processing including hardware-accelerated graphics rendering is done on the server and only compressed bitmap images are sent to the client, but is distinguished by its proprietary compression algorithm which allows for real-time transmission of complex 3D images and video, which existing remote desktop protocols struggle more
