Computer Hardware and Software
Instead of building on video cables, which are always bound to be 1-to-1 connections, DaaS uses standard IP networks as a pixel transport medium. This allows them to use all the flexibility of a network in a generic m-to-n connection for pixel transport as well. In addition, DaaS is a pure software solution and does not require any expensive hardware, which allows integrating arbitrary hosts and operating systems as sources or sinks in a DaaS installation.
