RemoteFX thin client features

-GPU Virtualization: GPU technology enables users running on a Hyper-V server to run graphic intensive applications on their Virtual Machine. This technology also helps system administrators to share these applications to multiple employees on a Hyper-V server, ultimately providing a rich Windows experience to all users.

-Host-Side Rendering: Gives users the highest quality session as the applications are constantly being pushed out to the desktop allowing the end-user to experience faster run-time and responsiveness, higher image quality and decreased bandwidth consumption. Although not seen from the end-user level, this feature provides for a seamless VDI deployment without compromising any quality on a RemoteFX thin client.

-Encoding: RemoteFX thin clients differentiate between, test, synthetic/ natural images and video, then encode the content resulting in higher desktop quality.

Overall, RemoteFX is a great solution for deploying VDI when the need for basic applications as well as graphic demanding applications is demanded by the organization. 10ZiG’s wide array of Thin Clients for RemoteFX is designed to suit every business’ needs.
