VMware Ready™ Certified PC-over-IP® All-in-One Monitors for Ultra-Secure Remote Network Access

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.: Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, has launched the NC190 and NC240 monitors to allow secure access to remote servers and data centers. The NC190 and NC240 19” and 23.6” zero-client displays are designed to provide an alternative to desktop PCs, enabling highly secure access to any PC-over-IP (PCoIP®)-enabled remote host. This allows users to connect to centralized servers, without the need for workstations on their desks.

“Zero-client” displays provide PC-free access to servers, data centers, driving enterprise adoption of desktop virtualization

“Samsung’s new NC190 and NC240 have multiple benefits for organizations looking to streamline their operations,” said Young Bae, director of display at Samsung Electronics Information Technology Division. “Reducing the need for workstations at each desk reduces clutter while ensuring that all users access the correct versions of files and use the latest, authorized, versions of software and operating systems. The NC190 and NC240 are among the first VMware Ready™ Certified monitors and their built-in security features make them an incredibly safe way to access sensitive information on remote hosts.”

“Samsung is a valuable member of the VMware partner ecosystem, helping proliferate PCoIP® as part of its zero-client offerings to deliver a rich end user experience while reducing management costs for IT organizations,” said Patrick Harr, vice president, desktop virtualization, VMware. “In launching the NC190 and NC240 monitors, Samsung has demonstrated its commitment to providing secure, remote virtual computing in a corporate environment.”

Uncompromised user experience
The Samsung NC190 and NC240 contain a range of features providing an impressive user experience. They each offer a high definition picture ideal for CAD/CAM, graphic design and 3D rendering environments. Additional features designed to support user experience are the inclusion of four USB ports for easily added peripherals, a compact design maximizing desktop space, HD-ready video viewing and ultra fast response rates.

Exceptional security
Data is highly secure in the NC190 / NC240 environment. No data leaves the remote host or datacenter, ensuring that individual workstations cannot be hacked or infected with viruses or spyware. All images transmitted to the displays are encrypted, providing a highly secure connection. Additionally, USB authentication ensures that no unauthorized devices can be attached to the system. This makes them ideal for use in environments such as finance, government and military.

True zero-client
The Samsung NC190 and NC240 are true zero-client displays, allowing connections direct from the desktop display to a central host. The fanless screens contain no OS, drivers or hard drives. They provide a low-power alternative to traditional desktop computers while integrating seamlessly into existing systems which use PCoIP®-enabled rack workstations, towers or blade PCs. This reduces maintenance costs as all software installed on the server automatically extends to each user’s desktop.

The monitors will be shown at the Samsung booth at the following shows:

  • VMware vForums
    • Los Angeles, May 20
    • Boston, June 3
  • EMC World – Boston, May 10-13
  • VMware World – San Francisco, August 30 – September 2

The Samsung NC190 and NC240 are available now with a MSRP of $698 and $815 respectively. Both monitors are available through Samsung resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG or by visiting www.samsung.com
