Why chose NX for video transport encapsulation? My experience shows remote
desktop encapsulation poor for motion video (DVD, lecture etc). They seem to
be optimized for computer screen transmission. 

Do you believe NX has efficient algorithms for moving motion video. 

As I have experienced it, NX was inefficient. It had issues with full screen
motion video across WANs for example.
