  • Full display transfer, often by encoding it as a video stream from one system to another. The transfer itself is basically a surface, but representing an entire screen such that it would normally be sent to a display (see here for comparison to Surface Sharing).  The receiving system may however use content as part of a composition.


It is clear that there may be some other variations when it becomes difficult to fully differentiate between for example Surface Sharing and Virtual Display.  In such cases we would recommend calling it Surface Sharing.  In the end the result matters more than the definition, of course.
