Citrix: HDX 3D Pro – Toggling between lossy and lossless protocols to sharp CAD lines just got easier!
I’ve blogged before about how H.264 technologies can inherently have artefacts associated with them (read here). Particularly CAD hidden-line/wireframe lines that are near parallel can show a fading in colour or seem “less sharp”
HDX allows users to switch between lossless and lossy graphics modes dynamically but switching to lossless has a high bandwidth overhead. Better strategies can be to use the “Build to visually-lossless” policy which will use the standard H.264 technologies when the screen is transient (moving) e.g. when a user rotating a CAD part or a video is playing. When the moment stops the screen will build to a higher quality (you can read more in my article about using built to visually lossless, here). Or another option can be to use the new thinwire compatibility mode just released with XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 FP3 (see Thinwire Compatibility Mode), and particularly explore the innovations in buid-to-loss.
