ViewSonic introduces Thin Client and Zero Client Solutions for a High-Performance Virtual Desktop

 

ViewSonic VDI solutions meet the networking needs of educators, SMBs, and enterprises alike

NSW, Sydney – June 18, 2014 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, announced its lineup of Smart Client solutions today, which includes brand new Thin Client and Zero Client product offerings that enable users to access their desktop accounts from a PC server nearly anywhere.

“It’s no secret that the desktop computing space is shrinking. As people turn to smartphones and tablets for an increasingly mobile experience, ViewSonic remains focused on evolving our desktop architecture to meet our customers’ needs. By leveraging our display and computing expertise today, we will revitalise the virtualised desktop” said William Tse, Country Manager for ViewSonic AU/NZ.

ViewSonic’s Thin Client and Zero Client offerings feature a powerful yet tiny 0.6L design with space-saving options, such as an included mounting bracket for attachment to any VESA-ready monitor. Both categories are optimised and certified for use within major virtualised environments (Microsoft RemoteFX, Citrix ICA/HDX, and VMware PCoIP) as well. Users will benefit from overall ease of deployment, simplified management, enhanced security, better accessibility, and a lower total cost of ownership. Paired with TAA Trade Compliance and featuring flexible dual digital (DVI) output support for 1080p multi-monitor usage and a Kensington lock, ViewSonic’s flexible and cost effective Smart Clients also consume up to 80 percent less energy[1]for a lower total cost of ownership, making them the ideal choice for meeting the networking needs of educators, SMBs, and enterprises alike.

“For enterprises, Smart Clients means that corporations can now support the demand for BYOD and more easily manage the hosting of virtualised desktops,” Tse further highlighted that

“The result is a happier, more productive workforce and an increase in efficiency of operations.”
