The adoption of cloud computing – virtualizing computer resources in a centralized data center are having a large impact on companies workflows. Recent developments by NVIDIA, Citrix and Vmware have now made it possible to virtualize computer graphics.

This presentation looks at the building blocks of these technologies and postulates on how they may used to create a virtual digital switch where content is streamed over IP connections for collaborative displays.
