ViewSonic Delivers Tomorrow’s Thin Client Today; Announces First Virtual Desktop Client to Leverage Citrix XenMobile


 Citrix bestows ViewSonic’s suite of fully functional desktop thin clients with


‘Best of Synergy’ award


Anaheim, Calif. – May 22, 2013 ViewSonic Corp. announced today at Citrix Synergy™ the future of virtual desktop computing accessed via managed smart displays. Citrix has also named ViewSonic’s new solutions a ‘Best of Synergy’ award winner.

Leveraging a 25-year display heritage, ViewSonic has extended the Citrix XenMobile™ enterprise mobility management solution to its next generation of thin clients with its new line of smart displays. Citrix XenMobile gives IT organizations complete management and control of their mobile devices, apps, and data. ViewSonic’s new smart displays take advantage of this management and control by integrating XenMobile into its new devices, including the 24” SD-A245 and 22” SD-A225, to give IT organizations the ability to manage both their mobile and smart devices seemlessly.

“Citrix XenMobile supports the broadest array of new types of devices in the industry. ViewSonic’s SD-A245 and SD-A225 smart displays are a key example. Our collaboration with ViewSonic to pre-load XenMobile on the company’s smart displays allows IT to remotely secure and deliver apps and data on these new classes of devices,” said Amit Pandey, vice president and general manager, Mobile Platforms group at Citrix.

As enterprises develop and adopt mobile productivity apps that are changing the way they do business, IT organizations are driven to make significant investments in enterprise mobility solutions.  By extending these mobile solutions to smart displays running the Android operating system, enterprises can standardize on apps and mobile management tools for both mobile and smart devices, reducing IT complexity and streamlining costs.

“Through our relationship with Citrix, ViewSonic is helping IT organizations effectively extend their enterprise mobility investment to smart devices connecting to virtual desktops. At the same time, our display solutions allows users to access an extremely secure, locked down desktop that IT can easily manage. This new class of device changes the game in thin computing, delivering tomorrow’s thin client today. We are honored that Citrix has validated these efforts with a Best of Synergy award,” said Jeff Volpe, President of ViewSonic Americas.

In addition to the security and manageability features, low power consumption and access to virtual Windows applications and desktops found within a traditional thin client environment, the ViewSonic smart displays with Citrix XenMobile Enterprise benefit from:

  • The ability to natively run managed mobile applications, including Worx-enabled Android mobile apps, without putting demands on backend PC servers, in turn reducing network bandwidth

  • The ability to natively run multimedia, including types of video and media that a thin client typically cannot

  • The ability to provide single sign-on access to SaaS and web-based applications, simplifying the user experience while maintaining a secure and managed environment

  • A touch screen UI design, helping to facilitate the use of touch within software applications. This delivers users the modern interactive form factor of smartphones and tablets, but with a larger screen size for heightened productivity

  • Extended device management and control capabilities that allow enterprise IT staff to use the same mobile management solution, Citrix XenMobile Enterprise, to manage their smart displays and mobile devices, reducing complexity


ViewSonic’s award-winning 24” SD-A245 smart display with XenMobile will be showcased at the Citrix Synergy Los Angeles event May 22-24, 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Both the SD-A245 and SD-A225 will be available in August at respective ESPs of $549 and $449.

Women's Hockey Announces Partners for Autism Awareness Project

HAMILTON, N.Y. (1/27/12) – The Colgate women's hockey team will partner with Autism Speaks, ViewSonic and Goals for Good in its 2012 Autism Awareness Project.


2012 Colgate Women's Hockey Autism Awareness Project




HAMILTON, N.Y. (1/27/12) – The Colgate women's hockey team will partner with Autism Speaks, ViewSonic and Goals for Good in its 2012 Autism Awareness Project.

The Raiders will launch the 2012 project with their annual Light Up Starr Rink Blue event that will take place on Feb. 3 in its ECAC Hockey matchup against Union at 7 p.m.

“We are thrilled to continue our work with Autism Speaks and have added some great new partners this year,” stated head coach Scott Wiley. “We really wanted to build on the momentum we created in 2011 by adding new and exciting elements to the project through new partnerships and initiatives. This year we added ViewSonic and Goals for Good as partners and we look forward to working with them to achieve this year's goals which are to raise $30,000, broaden our outreach efforts, and provide resources and networking for people on the autism spectrum.”

The team will partner with Autism Speaks once again this season. Last year, Colgate partnered with Autism Speaks U and established a Colgate chapter to support the work of Autism Speaks, North America's largest autism science and advocacy organization.

“I am excited to attend the second annual event and thankful to the Colgate women's hockey team for organizing this event,” stated Autism Speaks' Walk-Events Manager, Melissa Zavorski. “The team's efforts to raise awareness of autism at Colgate University are so greatly appreciated. Autism Speaks is dedicated to changing the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders; our mission includes funding autism research, developing family services tools, raising awareness, and advocating for autism treatments to be covered by insurance. The Autism Awareness Project is such a wonderful example of how students can raise awareness in their community and we can't thank the Colgate women's hockey team enough for their efforts.”

One of two new partners to the project this season is consumer electronic company, ViewSonic, which will be donating five Viewbook 10e tablet computers to the project. These tablet computers will be given to families in need of a communication device for their family member on the spectrum.

“For ViewSonic to be able to donate to a worthy cause is goodness and fulfilling unto itself," said Jeff Volpe, ViewSonic President of Americas and father of sophomore forward Taylor Volpe. "But for our tablet technology to make a difference in a person's life beyond work and play is incredible. We are grateful and proud to be associated with Colgate which has been such an advocate and leader in the Autism Awareness Project this past year.”

The second new partner added to the project this year is Goals for Good, an initiative created in 2011 by senior Kevin McNamara from the Colgate men's hockey team. The mission of the project is to provide a vehicle inspiring people to donate to chosen non-profit organizations through collegiate ice hockey competition. Men's and women's ECAC Hockey teams have partnered with a charity and Goals For Good hopes to bring an increased amount of aid and awareness to these charities this season.

"I think that it is great that the men's team (Colgate) and Goals For Good is going to be involved with the Autism Awareness Project,” stated McNamara. “The women's team has always done an outstanding job with this project, and my teammates and I are hoping we can help. Coach Wiley was instrumental in helping Goals For Good get off of the ground, and we always spoke about teaming the Autism Awareness Project and Goals For Good together. We are all very excited about the upcoming games, auctions, and raffles to raise money and awareness for these causes."
