Teradici Demos PCoIP Optimized Client for Mobile Virtual Desktop Users at CES

Teradici, the developer of the innovative PC-over-IP® (PCoIP®) protocol that enables a true PC experience for desktop virtualization, today announced its participation at the 2012 International CES, January 10 – 13 in Las Vegas. Teradici will be showcasing a joint technology demonstration with Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), highlighting the performance and efficiency of both the OMAP4460 smart multicore processor and Teradici PCoIP protocol.

The demonstration, taking place in the TI Wireless booth, North Hall, MR N116, will showcase the PCoIP protocol delivering a VMware View™ virtual desktop using TI’s OMAP4460 mobile processor. TI will also be demonstrating a concurrent video conferencing session running on the same OMAP 4 platform. This demonstration will show the continuing evolution of the PCoIP protocol which is expanding to support new hardware and software platforms.

“By collaborating with TI on the OMAP 4 platform, we are expanding our portfolio of optimized solutions to provide mobile and enterprise customers with multimedia-rich virtual desktop performance,” said Dan Cordingley, president and chief executive officer. “Teradici’s continuing innovations in hardware, software and protocol deliver even greater flexibility for workers to access their VDI environments remotely and use new client form factors such as tablets and phone devices.”

“The efficiency of the PCoIP protocol in a virtual desktop environment capitalizes on the performance of the OMAP 4 platform, allowing us to deliver a very compelling virtual desktop user experience,” said Dennis Rauschmayer, general manager, OMAP enterprise business line, TI. “OMAP 4’s smart multicore architecture allows users to experience the high-performance remote virtual desktop session on a monitor while concurrently enjoying a full Android experience or demanding application such as an HD video conference session on a second screen.”

About PCoIP Technology
Teradici’s PCoIP technology is an innovative remote display technology that allows the user’s desktop operating system, applications, and data to reside in the datacenter, eliminating the need for traditional desktop workstations, PCs and thin clients, and delivers an uncompromised user experience to each person, anywhere, over any network and to any type of device without incurring the security risks associated with having data reside in remote PCs, laptops, or tablets. PCoIP technology provides high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and high-definition media, with full USB peripheral interoperability, locally over a LAN or remotely over a high-latency WAN. It compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter and transmits it ‘pixels only’ across a standard IP network to secure, stateless PCoIP zero clients, thin clients, and mobile devices.

The PCoIP protocol is implemented in several software configurations, including VMware View™, the industry leading desktop virtualization platform as well as in silicon for hardware accelerated performance and enhanced security. A growing ecosystem of over 30 third-party vendors provide a wide variety of PCoIP products including server plug-in cards, rack and tower workstations, blade PCs, zero clients, integrated monitors, and IP phones with PCoIP capability.
