Vesa releases Net2Display Standard

To enable computer and I/O capabilities across local and wide area networks and local interconnects

By CBR Staff Writer

Vesa has released Net2Display Standard, which it claims to provide efficient remoting of computer display and I/O capabilities across local interconnects, and across local and wide area computer networks. It supports keyboards, pointers, audio and USB-attached peripheral devices, providing local capabilities of a remote PC.

According to Vesa, Net2Display allows client devices and host systems to connect with multiple clients to provide multiple display capabilities. It provides virtual channels for handling data traffic. The IP network facilities prioritise interactive traffic and discovery mechanisms operate without the need for user intervention. It describes a set of commands used by a host computer system to send and manipulate display data and I/O.

The display using Net2Display can be connected to a host computer through ethernet, Wi-Fi, USB, or any other networking or I/O interface. The interconnection between the host computer and the display supports the internet protocol networking protocol and I/O devices connected to the client display are remotely connected to the host using the USB protocol, the company said.

The company said that it minimises the complexity of the client and supports remoting distances from a meter to thousands of kilometers. It maintains response times below 100ms and is designed to use less than 10Mbps in applications. The standard supports plug-ins for display codecs. In addition, the USB devices can be remoted without device driver modification while the standard also makes optimal use of all existing security protocols and infrastructures.

Bill Lempesis, executive director at Vesa, said: “Net2Display is the first standard that specifies display and I/O device remoting over a network. Other approaches to remoting bring with them drawbacks that limit their application, particularly with regard to display codecs. The Nets2Display standard meets the industry’s need for a remote I/O standard and provides for comprehensive interoperability.”
