Information systems innovator Samsung Electronics America Inc. has announced four new cloud displays. The latest lines combine VDI and desktop virtualization for secure access to a business cloud.
The TC191W and TC241W thin-client and NC191 and NC241 zero-client cloud displays are designed to provide integrated connectivity to business clouds via desktop virtualization technology, therefore eliminating the need for a PC with excessive IT administration costs. As sensitive information is centralized and secured in a business cloud, the user environment is meant to be easier to deploy, maintain, and manage while minimizing exposure to security risks.†
The NC-Series enables SMBs to migrate to a VDI cloud.
Certified for optimal use with VMware View, the NC Series displays have built-in access technology using the latest Teradici Tera2 chipset technology. The NC-Series also features SoC (System-on-Chip) technology, which reduces the desktop attack surface while greatly reducing the need for client-side administration.
The TC-Series cloud displays are flexible thin clients with a wide range of desktop virtualization access components built in, enabling users to connect to a variety of hosted cloud environments. From a familiar Windows interface, users can toggle between published Citrix applications, access a virtual desktop from their VMware server, or login to a corporate HR site from the local IE web browser. With Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES 7) pre-installed, users get the simplicity of a thin client with PC-like utility.
Available in 19- and 23.6-inch models, both the TC- and NC-Series cloud displays are designed to eliminate bulky PCs from the workspace and seamlessly blend into an office interior. By integrating hardware and cabling into the display, this sleek design minimizes clutter. This clean design is convenient for attaching a second display to the digital video output to improve productivity or plug a notebook into the video-input for temporary use as a monitor.†
Both cloud displays have advanced encoding and decoding for processing multimedia content and high quality images practical for graphic design (CAD) and 3D rendering. Moreover, tactile selection and function buttons are also incorporated into the design, simplifying settings adjustment and power control.
The new TC-Series thin-client (TC191W and TC241W) and NC-Series zero-client cloud access displays (NC191 and NC241) can be ordered today starting around $477 (actual prices may vary). All Samsung displays can be found via select Samsung resellers and channel partners.
