New NComputing N-series Thin Client Release Provides Exceptional HDX Experience for Latest Citrix Virtual Desktop Environments

N-series v2.0 Firmware Adds Support for New Versions of Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop and VDI-in-a-Box, Provides Boost in Performance

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization solutions, today announced the latest major release of its firmware for the N-series line of Certified Citrix-Ready HDX Verified thin clients. N-series 2.0 includes a number of key enhancements which broadens support to the latest Citrix virtual desktop environments, including integration of Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.0 and support for XenApp® and XenDesktop® 7.1 and 7.5, VDI-in-a-Box™ 5.4, as well as select StoreFront and NetScaler configurations. The expanded solutions support gives those Citrix customers who plan to upgrade their solutions ahead of the curve the opportunity to also drastically reduce their VDI costs without sacrificing their HDX experience.

Originally launched in late 2012, the NComputing N-series is uniquely built to support only Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, and VDI-in-a-Box environments to ensure that Citrix end users receive the best possible user experience. Certified Citrix-Ready HDX Verified, and leveraging NComputing's own System-on-Chip, the Numo™ 3, the thin client delivers a remarkable HDX experience at an exceptionally competitive price. Today, NComputing N-series are being used by more than 700 enterprise organizations worldwide.

In addition to support for the newest Citrix solutions, the new NComputing N-series release also provides a vast boost in performance. The integration of the new H.264 codec for video playback in XenDesktop provides high-quality server-rendered video, including HD Flash video in full-screen mode. The technology also includes expanded support for USB webcams for the latest versions of Citrix XenDesktop, delivering customers the video conferencing and collaboration tools they need to function productively in a global market. What's more, additional HDX enhancements at the core of Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.0 help to further boost overall end user experience.

New features in the NComputing N-series 2.0 firmware include:

  • Integration of Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.0, supporting Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.1 and 7.5, as well as VDI-in-a-Box 5.4;
  • Support for USB webcams for XenDesktop versions 7.1 and 7.5;
  • Support for H.264 in XenDesktop video which results in greater performance for server-rendered video (this includes HD Flash) and full-screen mode;

  • Improved HDX experience for productivity applications, viewing multimedia files, using webcams and in conference calls.
