Ok, last post about Quest this week, I swear! On our joint webcast last week, Peter Ghostine mentioned Quest's image acceleration for their RDP add-on (called EOP). He also mentioned that I tested it and liked it, which is true. I got a few emails this past week asking for details, so I figured I'd shoot a quick video of EOP's RDP acceleration in action:
Quest's JPEG acceleration looks for screen regions that are being transmitted as bitmaps and then bulk compresses them with lossy JPEG compression and sends them down to the client. The result (as seen in the video) is a much better RDP experience over WAN connections.
