Remote Desktop Software with low latency

Question

I am searching for a remote desktop software (Linux/Windows/Mac) which has a very low latency between input+output (lower then 1 sec). Some VNC (UltraVNC, RealVNC) solutions have a latency of 1-2 seconds – even if connected directly over a switch.
Anyone experience with that? What would be the best software solution?

Thanks for your help!

Answer

I have been extremely happy with NoMachine (NX) for Linux (Mac, Windows and Linux clients) and Ericom Blaze for accelerated RDP to Windows. These have been my choices for remote display of monitoring and financial trading applications. But yes, the other comments about your local network do apply. VNC should work well on a local network.
