Screening needs a central storage and computer, ‘the server’, to receive and serve data, including images, to users.

At the point of use, one client PC collects for, or displays data from, the central unit.

A secure transfer medium is required to communicate data between the client PC and the server.

Image compression provides a useful tool to save storage space and improve response time for data transfers.

Models of screening determine which transfer medium is most appropriate.
