You can select the display protocol that Horizon Client uses when you connect to a remote desktop or application.

Procedure

  1. In Horizon Client, tap the Option menu in the upper-left corner of the Horizon Client menu bar.

    If you are connected to a server, you can tap the Option menu in the upper-left corner of the desktop and application selection window.

  2. Expand the Protocol section and select the display protocol to use.

    The PCoIP display protocol is a Tech Preview feature in Horizon Client 4.3. VMware Blast requires Horizon Agent 7.0 or later.

  3. (Optional) : If you selected VMware Blast, enable or disable H.264 encoding by tapping and toggling the Allow H.264 decoding option to On or Off.

    When this option is set to On, Horizon Client allows H.264 encoding if Horizon Agent for the remote desktop or application supports H.264 encoding. If Horizon Agent for the remote desktop or application does not support H.264 encoding, Horizon Client uses JPEG/PNG encoding instead. When this option is set to Off (the default setting), H.264 encoding is not allowed and Horizon Client always using JPEG/PNG encoding.

Results

The next time you connect to a remote desktop or application, Horizon Client uses the display protocol that you selected. You cannot change the display protocol for a currently connected session.

If you connect to a remote desktop or application that does not support the display protocol that you selected, Horizon Client displays an error message.
