ViewSonic Corp. has launched the SC-Z56, a quad video output zero client for the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) market, and developed for users needing higher resolution performance and multiple display support.

Featuring Teradici Tera 2 architecture, four DisplayPort outputs, and six USB ports, the SC-Z56 offers connectivity options to drive multiple displays and peripherals. The zero client supports up to four WUXGA (1920x1200) displays or two WQXGA (2560x1600) displays simultaneously.

“VDI installations can be taken to a new level of productivity with the SC-Z56,” says Erik Willey, product marketing manager of system and cloud products at ViewSonic Corp. “This quad output zero client provides the fastest possible performance in a VMware environment. It’s feature-rich with connectivity options, so it can support up to four HD displays. And, as a true zero client, the SC-Z56 delivers amazing reliability with little to no configuration or management, boosting productivity levels in a secure setting.”

The SC-Z56 comes in a compact, 1.2-pound form factor, and has no HDD, fan, or moving parts. Additionally, the design allows it to be placed discreetly away from the desktop or mounted directly onto a display. It includes high-speed virtual desktop performance and supports 2D/3D graphics applications.

ViewSonic’s SC-Z56 is now available at an MSRP of $659.00. For more information about the SC-Z56 and other ViewSonic VDI products, visit
