WALNUT, Calif. – February 27, 2014ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, announced that Brian Igoe has been named one of CRN’s 2014 Channel Chiefs.  This prestigious list of the most powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.


TD2240 extends high-quality, multi-touch experience of mobile devices to Windows® 8 PCs and laptops for consumers, home offices and commercial organizations

WALNUT, Calif – February 12, 2014ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, today launched its next-generation 10-point multi-touch 22” display. The new TD2240 provides a best-in-class multi-touch experience for consumers with projected capacitive touch technology, seamless integration with Windows® 8 and an ergonomic dual-hinge stand, all at a competitive cost.


The recent acquisition of AirWatch by VMware is not surprising in light of the industry’s growing mobile work force. As more enterprises invest in mobile devices and development of new software applications for their workforce, their respective IT organizations must have a way to secure and manage their employee’s mobile devices.

Traditionally, it’s been the device manufacturers that have provided the software tools to manage hardware devices. But PC and thin client manufacturers never really focused on mobile devices. And maybe it’s good for the industry that they didn’t. Because they probably would have limited their software solution to only their hardware, just as they’ve done with thin clients. Why should a company be locked in to a single hardware manufacturer’s products simply because of a software management tool?

ViewSonic has always supported open systems, and was first to implement the Android™ OS in thin clients.

Android 2.2 first introduced support for enterprise applications by offering the Android Device Administration API. The Device Administration API provides device administration features at the system level. These APIs allow developers to create security-aware applications that are useful in enterprise settings, in which IT professionals require rich control over employee devices.

It’s these APIs that have allowed companies such as AirWatch, Good Technology, Zenprise, and others to develop mobile device management (MDM) solutions. But why can’t an IT organization use the same software tools used to manage 1,000s of mobile devices to also manage their desktop devices?

This was the objective behind the Citrix and ViewSonic partnership to integrate Citrix® Worx Home™ within ViewSonic’s new smart display, or next generation thin client. Our new smart displays provide an IT organization the level of security and manageability from Citrix that they have come to trust over the years.

It’s expected that Google will continue to expand the Device Administration API in future releases of the Android operating system. And that desktop virtualization companies will extend their MDM solutions beyond mobile devices and on to the desktop.

Open standards and cross platform solutions have proven in the past to benefit both PC industry suppliers and end-users. There’s no reason why it can’t do the same for the display virtualization industry and its end-users.

Citrix today announced the launch of XenApp 7.5 and XenDesktop 7.5, two new solutions that allow businesses to more easily leverage the elasticity of hybrid clouds. As a committed partner to Citrix, ViewSonic provides both traditional thin clients and innovative smart display clients that are fully certified to support both XenApp and XenDesktop.

XenApp dramatically reduces the costs and complexity of virtualizing Windows apps and delivering them to users on any mobile, desktop or thin client device.

XenDesktop brings hybrid cloud provisioning to enterprise desktop virtualization deployments, allowing customers to use Amazon Web Services (AWS) or any Citrix CloudPlatform™ by Apache CloudStack® cloud to flex, grow or transform their virtual desktop infrastructure. Unlike competing solutions, XenDesktop supports an “any cloud” strategy that does not lock customers into a proprietary cloud, but allows them to leverage any of the large public clouds on the market.

Together, XenApp and XenDesktop provide the only unified architecture for apps and desktop delivery, increasing IT flexibility and saving infrastructure and costs.

ViewSonic delivers traditional thin clients that are certified to support both XenApp and XenDesktop. The ViewSonic SC-T35 and SC-T45 thin clients are the perfect choice for Citrix VDI implementations. ViewSonic’s thin clients are ideal end point solutions for providing desktop virtualization in conjunction with existing infrastructure—they can be mounted to any VESA-ready monitor. In addition, the SC-T35 and SC-T45 support professional graphics applications and deliver a smoother virtual desktop, with excellent 2D/3D graphics rendering capabilities. The SC-T35 and SC-T45 are Citrix-optimized power houses in an ultra-compact 0.9lb form factor. When deployed for Citrix desktop virtualization, these thin clients deliver unparalleled power and efficiency.

In partnership with Citrix, ViewSonic also delivers innovative smart display clients that are fully compatible with XenApp and XenDesktop. Integrated with Citrix® Worx Home and leveraging Citrix XenMobile, the ViewSonic SD-A225 and SD-A245 smart display clients allow an IT organization the ability to use a single tool to fully provision and manage both their mobile and desktop devices in addition to allowing users to access enterprise-ready apps.

While the televisions in hotel rooms, restaurants, and sports bars appear similar to traditional home televisions, a commercial-grade TV has much more functionality. Televisions utilized in hospitality environments require features that not only need to meet the needs of those that will ultimately watch and enjoy them, but they also need to meet the needs of the venue that installs and maintains them. To that end, hospitality venues will benefit from an entertainment solution that provides the following:

  • Durability: With up to 15 hours of continuous usage per day, as well as LED backlights with lifespans of over 30,000 hours, a commercial-grade display can withstand repeated, long-term use, thus lowering the total cost of ownership.
  • Built-in HDTV tuner: Commercial-grade TVs are built with an ATSC/NTSC HDTV tuner and Full HD 1080p resolution to deliver high-definition TV programming for an enhanced guest experience. The built-in tuner offers viewers more content choices by delivering a wider range of HDTV channels, including channels for business, sports, education, movies, etc.
  • Multi-device control: Televisions with an RS232 port and IR pass-through offer local control for set-top boxes and other connected devices directly with the TV’s remote control, rather than requiring multiple controls for each device.
  • Programmable hospitality settings: With programmable settings, multiple televisions can be easily and simultaneously setup to have the same customized features such as channel default, parental controls, audio levels, etc.
  • USB playback and cloning features: Not only can photos and music be uploaded to the television via a USB drive, but the same photos and music can be conveniently duplicated across multiple televisions via the primary television.
  • Versatile connectivity: With a wide selection of inputs, such as HDMI, USB and VGA, as well as composite and component inputs, a variety of digital equipment can be plugged into the TV and provide more flexible installation options.
  • With these necessary hospitality-specific features, it’s easy to see why a restaurant manager or hotel IT manager can’t simply go to a big-box electronics shop and purchase the televisions needed for their specific needs.

    With over 25 years as an award-winning display technology leader, ViewSonic® delivers the latest in innovative hospitality TV technology to meet the needs of any hospitality environment. Designed with a variety of customizable hospitality settings for multi-screen environments, our full line of commercial-grade TVs delivers a premium, easy-to-manage entertainment solution for hotels, cruise ships, restaurants, bars, and other hospitality venues.

sc-z55_desktop_hiresColleges and universities today face several challenges supporting students, faculty, and staff with current technology. For example, the increasing demand for connecting a wider variety of BYOD devices places strain on understaffed IT resources. In addition, growing student bodies necessitate the deployment of more desktops, yet schools have limited amounts of IT funds. Many campuses also have needs for increased security, as well as a lower energy footprint.

How then, can education institutions meet these challenges while ensuring their campuses have the IT support needed to be productive and successful? In the case of Florida Atlantic University, they recently turned to a virtualized desktop infrastructure by outfitting computer labs and faculty offices with ViewSonic® SC-Z55 zero clients. Engineered to support VMware Horizon View, the SC-Z55 was fully compatible with FAU’s existing IT infrastructure, and was a perfect fit for both the university’s budget and green policies. Equipped with ViewSonic’s SC-Z55 zero clients, FAU began to immediately reap the many benefits of a VDI solution including the following:

  • New computer labs were up and running within days rather than weeks, and single workstations were repurposed or upgraded in only hours.
  • Centralized security, maintenance and management of computing resources save time and money for greatly reduced TCO.
  • Computer labs are cooler and quieter with lower electricity cost, and the mountable design of the SC-Z55 frees up valuable desk space.

To learn how FAU utilized ViewSonic’s SC-Z55 zero clients to virtualize desktops, read the full case study here.

WALNUT, Calif. – November 4, 2013ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual display solutions, delivers the ultimate in wireless sharing, flexibility and connectivity with its new Miracast and Intel® WiDi optimized ViewSync WPG-370 gateway solution.

Ideal for enterprise, SMB, and education environments as well as AV installers, the WPG-370 provides advanced universal wireless connectivity for any new or existing projector, monitor, TV, or large-format display[1].

Whether projecting from Windows, Mac, iOS or Android™ platforms, this solution makes it easy for any business or organization with mounted displays[2] to wirelessly push content onto the screen, without frustrating cords and wires.

“Now that tablets deliver enough processing power to support most business applications, users are often choosing to present from their tablets,” said Jeffrey Hsieh, Senior Manager of Product Marketing for ViewSonic. “Additionally, as individuals experience wireless streaming capabilities with devices like Google’s Chromecast and Apple TV in their everyday personal lives, we anticipate that they will look for a natural extension of this benefit in their professional work environment as well. That’s why we developed the WPG-370.”

Multiple connectivity options such as HDMI® and optical audio make connecting to any display effortless, while convenient features like PC-less media streaming work directly from a USB thumb drive.

WALNUT, Calif. – September 16, 2013 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, is expanding its VG39 ergonomic display series with the availability of the new VG2039m-LED. As one of the very first display manufacturers to offer a 19.5” visible panel designed specifically for the enterprise[1], the new VG2039m-LED complements 22” and 24” VG series models, which are already shipping.

Because thin client adapters can be simply VESA-mounted to any desktop display, and turn that display into a cloud-connected virtual desktop, thin client adapters are currently the most common endpoint device in a VDI architecture. However, for those organizations that are considering the total cost of ownership, they may want to upgrade their entire desktop hardware.

In that case, zero client displays (also known as cloud monitors) can provide a fully integrated, cloud-enabled monitor that has zero client technology already built into it. Therefore, zero client displays are perfect for companies seeking a seamless desktop virtualization experience all within a single, cloud-connected display.

But before choosing a zero client display, organizations should examine the following key features:

    • Power consumption: How much energy will the display save?
    • Connectivity: Which input/output options are available for connecting peripherals (i.e. USB ports, DVI-I, etc.)?
  • Security: Does the display offer easy management and security options for the IT department?
  • Resolution and contrast ratio: Does the screen performance match the needs of the users?
  • Built-in speakers: Saves space and further streamlines the desktop.
  • Internal chipset: Earlier cloud monitors featured the Teradici TERA1 chipset, while newer models feature the more advanced and powerful TERA2 chipset.

All of the above features may greatly affect whether an organization can fully realize all of the benefits of a VDI deployment. To that end, ViewSonic’s SD-Z245 Smart Display Zero Client is the perfect solution for companies seeking a seamless desktop experience, with ultra-high security and reliability, in VMware-based networks. A true zero client, the SD-Z245 has no local memory or moving parts for the ultimate in energy savings and dependability. A VMware-certified design guarantees performance and compatibility in your network.

ViewSonic’s family of zero client, thin client, and smart client devices delivers high performance and secure virtualized computing, deploying in just minutes

SAN FRANCISCO – August 26, 2013 (Moscone Center #231) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, is showcasing its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) products today at VMworld, including the just launched SD-Z245 all-in-one zero client.

“Virtualization technology is quickly being adopted by organizations of all sizes,” said Jeff Volpe, president, ViewSonic Americas. “IT departments are embracing VDI solutions due to the myriad of benefits including improved user experience, increased security and dramatically lower total-cost-of-ownership.”

ViewSonic VDI devices offer an IT-friendly way to simplify virtual desktop management in any virtualization environment. Easy scalability, increased security, up to 80 percent reduced energy consumption and world-class three-year standard warranties are just some of the benefits organizations enjoy when implementing a VDI solution with ViewSonic zero clients.

The latest addition to ViewSonic’s VDI portfolio, the 23.6” SD-Z245 zero client is an all-in-one desktop display with an integrated Tera2321 CPU, the most advanced processor with accelerated PCoIP from virtualization technology leader Teradici®. Engineered for guaranteed compatibility with VMware Horizon View, the SD-Z245 is optimized to deliver peak performance and blazing-fast response time with VMWare based networks.

The SD-Z245 supports 2D and 3D graphics intensive applications and a rich multimedia experience at full frame rates over gigabit Ethernet. The DVI-I video output easily accommodates dual display configurations for increased productivity.

A genuine “no-compromise” zero client device, the SD-Z245 is up to five times faster than previous generation Teradici-based zero clients. With a solid state design and no operating system or moving parts, the device delivers unparalleled reliability. A generous screen size, fast response times and integrated speakers combine for an industry leading features-to-pricing ratio, making this a great value and the ideal all-in-one solution for high-performance virtualized computing.

“We’re delighted to partner with ViewSonic, a trusted brand with a long history of bringing desktop display solutions to market,” said Dan Cordingley, president and CEO, Teradici. “Utilizing the Teradici Tera2321 dual display zero client processor, the ViewSonic SD-Z245 zero client delivers best-in-class performance and response time.”

The SD-Z245 zero client monitor will ship in the Americas during Q4 at an ESP of $549, while a 22” model (SD-Z225) is currently available at an ESP of $499. For those looking to transform their current display into a zero client solution, the space-saving SC-Z55, also based on Teradici’s Tera2321 processor, is available now for an ESP of $299.

Flipped ClassroomFrom interactive whiteboards, to HD projectors, to PCs and tablets, technology in the classroom is nothing new. But an innovative method of teaching that brings technology out of the classroom and into the home is gaining ground in many schools across the country. This new teaching model is called the “Flipped Classroom” and it utilizes quick, online teacher-created videos that students typically watch after school, at home. If students don’t have a computer or an online connection at home, they can access lessons at public libraries or stay after school to watch the online lessons. Traditional “homework” is then worked on with the teacher the next day in the classroom.

By delivering instruction online and out of class, and bringing homework into the classroom, this “flipped” methodology benefits students and teachers in a number of ways.

By watching lectures at home, students can go at their own pace, take notes, and write down any questions they may have from the lecture. Students can even rewind lectures to memorize and master certain lessons. In the classroom, teachers now have more time to spend helping students 1 on 1. As a result of this 1 on 1 interaction, teachers can revisit concepts that students may not have understood at home, teachers can answer each student’s questions individually, and student frustration is minimized.

In addition, extra class time is also used to do labs or interactive activities that help to further illustrate the lessons. In short, a creative and collaborative learning environment is fostered within the classroom where teacher-student relationships are much stronger when compared to those of traditional teaching methods. Ultimately, schools that have adopted a “Flipped Classroom” methodology report higher test scores and decreased behavior problems amongst their students.
