Operating System: Mac OS X
RDS shares any one or more displays of the computer it runs on with other networked computers that use RDC. RDC uses the shared displays of RDS computers to display its desktop by sending display information over the networ.
The RDC computer may use the shared displays of the RDS computer to either duplicate local displays (which is known as mirroring) and/or extend its desktop onto the shared displays (which is known as extending).
Here are some possible uses for RDS/RDC:
· you have an older notebook computer or computer with an integrated display that is otherwise unused and you would like to have more desktop space to be more productive; RDS/RDC can extend your desktop and make use of the older machine
· you visit another workplace which has a computer available for use but your programs and data are on a notebook you bring with you; you would like to temporarily use the workplace's computer display but want (or need) to keep your programs and data on the notebook. RDS/RDC can allow you to keep your notebook as your main computer but also let you use the workplace's display to increase your productivity
· you are a computer professional such as a software developer, a website designer/developer, or a graphics designer and need as much desktop space as possible; RDS/RDC can increase your productivity by allowing you to have more desktop space for your work
· you wish to have a larger desktop, but your current computer cannot have any more displays physically connected to it; RDS/RDC can extend your desktop using networked computers to increase your effective desktop space
· Apple Macintosh: PowerPC G3 233MHz or better, or Intel Core Solo 1.5GHz or better. Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later. 256MB RAM or more. System memory will be used for any remote displays that are used to extend the desktop (however, none is needed for mirroring displays). This memory will be taken at system startup time and cannot be used for other purposes. Because this memory is unavailable for other uses, RDC allows you to configure how much memory to use for remote display purposes. RDC for Macintosh supports display depths of 8/15/16/32 bits per pixel (256 colors, thousands of colors, and millions of colors).
