Approved apps and configurations are instantly deployed upon start-up, and a locked-down and extremely secure desktop is delivered to the user. This innovative solution also provides for fully functional virtual desktop computing with a Citrix Receiver app.

Simplify IT needs

The SD-A225 supports use cases where the IT staff deploys SaaS and Web applications, without any backend virtualization infrastructure—this significantly simplifies IT’s infrastructure needs, but still provides a managed and secure environment.

Dual Point Optical Touch for Intuitive Operation

The SD-A225 smart display client is equipped with Dual Point Optical Touch technology that enables users to enjoy a responsive, tablet-like browsing experience. Users can also utilize the smart display client as a 22” (21.5” viewable) Full HD touch display to connect to existing PCs, notebooks, or tablets.

Natively Run Local Applications and Multimedia

The SD-A225 can be used off-line to run local applications, freeing up demand on backend PC servers. Running full HD videos with fast playback is a challenge for many desktop virtualization infrastructures, but the ViewSonic SD-A225 can natively run multimedia files at blazing-fast speeds while also reducing network bandwidth.

The built-in Micro SD card port and 3 USB (2 Type A and 1 Micro USB OTG) ports provide easy connectivity with high-speed transmission storage devices or peripherals, enhancing expansion flexibility and convenience.


Versatile Mounting Options

The SD-A225 features a 100 x 100mm VESA-mountable design that allows you to mount the display on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. You can easily detach the base by unscrewing four screws and then mounting the display on its new stand or wall mount.

Reviews & Accolades

VMworld 2013: ViewSonic’s Android Based Thin Client, a Hidden Treasure

Two main features of the ViewSonic devices makes this a cool device to have. The Dual Touch controller screen is the first cool feature which takes advantage of the native Android operating system. You can swipe, pinch and zoom just as you would on your mobile device and tablet. I was skeptical at first, but taking the time to use the large touch screen, with a virtual desktop, was easy to use. This makes the transition for users from their personal device to their work device easy. The second feature is purely the ability to download and run applications from the Google Play store, or your company run App Store. Giving the user the ability to download their favorite (Angry Birds) application makes using the device more personal without affecting its business use. Users can leverage the local processing power of the Tegra chip and the 8GB of memory to run graphically intensive applications and streaming media. For complete isolation of business and personal use, these devices can also be attached to their personal computers to be used as a traditional monitor.

"Our first generation devices which we started shipping last year were more of a consumer grade device, but there was so much demand in the enterprise and vertical markets for that form factor, and that type of device, with Android, that we started looking at the enterprise," said Mike Holstein, Vice President, Business Development & Emerging Technologies at ViewSonic. "The devices are for corporate and enterprise customers," he said.
