No, Lumion does not officially support 'remote desktop' access, for example via Windows Remote Desktop, WMWare Fusion, VMWare VDI, Citrix/ZenApp, Teamviewer, Nvidia GRID, XenServer, XenDesktop etc.
There are currently no plans to add support for any of these applications.
Some 'remote desktop' applications such as TeamViewer might let you start the rendering procedure but navigating around scenes and moving objects etc won't work as expected. Other 'remote desktop' applications such as Citrix and VMWare products will have trouble running Lumion.
