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.

ViewSonic Named to CRN’s 2013 5-Star Partner Program Guide


5-star designation in annual guide identifies the IT channel’s most elite vendor partner programs


WALNUT, Calif. – March 25, 2013 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions today announced it has once again been named to CRN’s 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide is the definitive listing of manufacturers and software publishers that service solution providers or provide products to the IT Channel. The guide recognizes those vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor’s investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.

Touch Technologies Take Hold

Touch technology has revolutionized the way we interact with our computing devices, and has become the user interface of choice. Everything from ATM machines, interactive ticket booths, POS devices, slot machines, and information kiosks feature a user-friendly interactive touch screen. Let’s take a look at two of the most common touch technologies in use today.



Optical Touch
Optical touch technology utilizes two or more image sensors that are usually placed around the edges of a display. These sensors allow the touch surface to recognize two contact points simultaneously, and provide users with direct interaction by allowing two-finger gestures such as zoom in/out, rotations, and two-finger taps. Because of optical touch’s scalability, versatility, and affordability, it is becoming a popular technology for use on large format displays.

The experience offered by optical touch is responsive and accurate, and does not require a conductive object for touch recognition. As such, this technology is extremely useful in gloved environments such as hospitals and dental offices, or for use with interactive stylus pens. Touch screens equipped with Dual Point Optical Touch are also versatile solutions for use in classroom settings, home entertainment and gaming, or as a Point of Sale device in retail stores, and even as an information kiosk.

Projected Capacitive Touch
Projected Capacitive is one of the leading touch technologies available and is widely utilized by mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Projected capacitive touch screens feature a grid pattern of conductive materials layered within multiple sheets of glass. The conductive grid creates an electrostatic field, so when the screen is touched by a conductive object (i.e. a finger), the touch is recorded by measuring the overall change in capacitance.

Projected Capacitive Touch is a true multi-touch technology, allowing for 3 or more simultaneous touch points on the screen. With the system’s ability to detect and resolve 10 or more touches at the same time, the accuracy and touch experience is dramatically improved for the user. Because of its speed, efficiency, and intuitiveness, Projected Capacitive Touch is becoming the technology of choice for current generation touch screens and interactive displays. It is more expensive due to the complex electronics and sensor construction and since it requires input from a conductive device, such as a finger, it is not suited for environments with gloved hands.

Touch screens equipped with capacitive touch are best utilized for multi-user applications such as gaming, or interactive whiteboards for use in educational settings. In addition, capacitive touch screens are an ideal solution for businesses seeking the ultimate in interactive displays and digital signage. Capacitive touch displays can be used to attract and engage customers in high-traffic areas such as high-end retail centers, transportation hubs, and hotel lobbies.

Conclusion
Optical Touch technology is scalable, versatile, and affordable, and best utilized for single-user applications such as POS devices, desktop displays, or for use within the gloved environments of the medical and dental fields.

Projected Capacitive Touch technology is an ideal choice for multi-user applications where interactivity and collaboration are needed, such as in classrooms. Additionally, Projected Capacitive touch can be of benefit to commercial applications as well such as interactive digital signage.

With 25 years of expertise as a leader and innovator of display technology, ViewSonic has a complete line of interactive and ergonomic touch displays to meet any need. ViewSonic’s TD20 series of touch displays feature super accurate and responsive Dual Point Optical Touch technology. ViewSonic’s TD40 series of touch displays are all Windows® 8 certified and feature 10-Point Capacitive touch technology. All of the TD20 and TD40 touch displays feature a 7H scratch-resistant surface hardness to ensure a consistent, high-quality touch experience even in high-traffic areas.

To find out how your business can benefit from touch technologies within any budget, contact ViewSonic for more information on its interactive multi-touch solutions.

ViewSonic Named 2013 CRN Channel Champion


Honored again as the Top Vendor in the Flat Panel Displays Category


WALNUT, Calif – March 13, 2013 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, was named a 2013 Channel Champion by CRN in the category of Flat Panel Displays 19”-30” at an awards ceremony during the XChange Solution Provider conference on March 12, 2013 in Orlando, FL. CRN’s annual Channel Champions awards are based on the results of a series of surveys conducted with top solution providers; the awards are presented to vendors receiving the best ratings in the areas of technological satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits.

The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based technology integrator market study in the industry, measuring the overall perceptions of vendor products and services by IT solution providers. The end result is a list of the most partner-friendly vendors in the channel, serving as a valuable resource for technology integrators when evaluating vendors and their programs.

“It is very rewarding that solution providers have again recognized ViewSonic with such a prestigious award,” said Sally Wang, vice president of product marketing at ViewSonic. “Everything we do, whether it be in product development, customer support, marketing communication, or end user agreements, we do with solution providers in mind in order to grow our businesses together. ViewSonic will continue its commitment to the solution provider community with our new and exciting line of cloud-enabled solutions, along with our wide portfolio of projectors, displays, digital signage, and interactive touch devices.”

“To receive a Channel Champion award is a distinct honor,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President and Editorial Director, CRN. “The win is a testament to a vendor’s dedication to supporting and maintaining a strong channel program. As such, this award is a direct result of their ability to develop and grow solid, mutually beneficial relationships with partners. We congratulate these leading technology vendors on this recognition.”

A sample list of Channel Champions award winners and related study will be published in the April 2013 issue of CRN magazine and online at www.crn.com.

Increase Presence and Drive Collaboration with Wireless Projectors

Wireless Projectors

 
Projector technology has evolved, now delivering better picture quality and expanded connection options. In addition to the traditional, wired (VGA/DVI/HDMI) connections, content may now be displayed from a thumb drive and wireless connections. Recent technology advancements have made wireless connectivity much simpler and powerful. A projector is a necessity of every business professional when presenting in the office or on the road. So don’t spend the first few minutes of your meeting locating and connecting the cables, jostling loose connections, or checking for bent pins. Instead, be presentation-ready with a wireless projector.

 

There are many benefits to using a wireless projector, which include:

  • Presenters are no longer confined to a small area next to the projector. They now have the freedom to sit anywhere in the room, usually within 30 feet of the projector (line-of-sight is required to maintain the quality of the signal).

  • The projector may be shared with multiple computers in the room, promoting team collaboration.

  • By wirelessly connecting a presenter’s mobile device to the projector, he/she can walk about the room with his/her device to interact and engage with the audience.

  • Presenters don’t need to bring along their connection cables while they travel.



Some factors businesses need to consider when using a wireless projector include:

 

  • The wireless bandwidth required for video streaming presentation.

  • The WiFi signal range necessary for a large-sized room.

  • The wireless connectivity stability that can impact the image quality.


When all these aspects are verified, wireless projectors can deliver great conveniences for businesses, especially for mobile presenters.

Videoconferencing – Drive Collaboration, Reduce Travel Costs and Gain Productivity

With the advancement in video, camera, audio technology, and the ability to utilize standard web browsers within existing network infrastructures, videoconferencing has become a popular practice in the SMB environment. Videoconferencing has expanded into markets such as live e-support, video arrangement, engineering design reviews, quality assurance, and telemedicine and made 24/7 support across the globe possible.

Adding Intelligence to Digital Signage Solutions with Facial Recognition Software

Digital signage solution with facial recognition capabilities are being made possible with recent advancements in cameras, processing power and application software. Facial recognition is a turn-key solution that shifts customer engagements from static to proactive, helping retailers interact in a way never before possible. “Sense of sight” intelligence allows a digital sign to extract visual data to gauge the audiences’ gender and age, and associate the results with an advertisement designed for that specific audience. This helps retailers not only deliver more targeted messaging but also translates to a more pleasurable customer experience, longer dwell time and increased engagement.

A South Korean company, SK Telecom, has launched a digital signage solution with facial recognition in a shopping mall in Korea across twenty-six digital signage displays strategically placed at various locations throughout the mall. In preparation for the launch, SK Telecom included 5,000 facial images and an additional 1,000 pieces of key facial features (facial shape, wrinkles, and distance between eyes) associated with age and sex identification in the control pool.  The company plans to spend three to six months to collect traffic volume and pattern information before approaching advertisers to customize ads based on sex and gender.

Intel also launched Intel® Audience Impression Metrics Suite (Intel® AIM Suite) for digital signage solutions; it integrates three intelligent software programs to deliver  impression metrics: Intel® AIM View collects audience demographic data, detects content viewed and viewing duration; Intel® AIM Analytics analyzes the data into a granular level and outputs into easy to understand graphs/charts and CSV formats; Intel® AIM Manage is a sensor management system that remotely manages the operation via the cloud. In addition, to protecting audience privacy, AIM Suite does not record facial images or personal information about the viewer.

Facial recognition technology helps advertisers (from automotive to cosmetics industries) generate more ROI from affectively communicating specific messages within target audiences. ViewSonic is excited about this trend and will continue to evaluate its market potential as it gains momentum. For more information on digital signage solutions, click here.
