Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote display system that allows you to
view and interact with a desktop environment that is running on a remote
computer. Using VNC, you can run graphical applications on a remote machine
and send only the pixels generated by these applications to your local machine.
VNC is platform-independent and supports a wide variety of operating systems
and architectures as both servers and clients.
TurboVNC is a high-speed version of VNC derived from TightVNC. It contains
a variant of Tight encoding that is tuned to maximize performance for image-
intensive applications (such as VirtualGL, video applications, and image
editors) while still providing excellent performance for other types of
applications. TurboVNC, in combination with VirtualGL, provides a complete
solution for remotely displaying 3D applications with interactive performance.
