Stream Contents of a Picture Box Over TCP

Hi

I trying to stream the contents of a picturebox over the network to another machine to be displayed. The picture box to be streamed is displaying image content in real time from a biometric device.

My first thought was to continually load the picturebox contents into a stream and send the stream to the other machine, where it can then convert that stream back to image data and display it. Does this sound feasible for what im trying to do? Would the overheads in loading the content into a stream continually be to much?

Any help/advice regarding this is appreciated.
Regards

Hi,

You might want to look at PipeStream, this might form part of a solution for reading from an uncompleted stream.
