What is Serialization Formatters in .NET Remoting ?

A
When any object is to be sent across the transport channel, it must be serialized and packed into a data format that can be transmitted with the wire. On the other end of the wire, this serialized data is read and deserialized back to the actual object. This Serialization is done by message-serialization formatters which convert the field or object's state into a format that is helpful for storage or transmission. Dot Net framework provides us two message-serialization formatters one of them is a binary serialization formatter which converts an object's state into a binary stream and other is SOAP serialization formatter which converts it into an XML string representation that's human readable. The binary serialization formatter much slightly faster.
